Huawei, an ICT infrastructure leader serving more than 170 countries around the world, has forged a successful partnership with United National Networks (UNN), the sole telecommunications and infrastructure provider in Brunei Darussalam.

The journey between Huawei and UNN began in 2019 and started with mobile and core network consolidation, but what followed was a series of modernization programs including the introduction of newer technology on virtualized digital platforms to provide best-in-class connectivity experiences for the nation.

During the project delivery period, the world was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, which brought forth disruptions within all industries. However, through hard work and effort from both Huawei and UNN, the joint project team successfully completed network consolidations within the stipulated timeframe.

In demonstrating the success of the project, data from the Ookla Speedtest Global Index, which compares internet speed data from around the world on a monthly basis, revealed the UNN as the leading network in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

Building on this, Huawei is also committed to providing the best support to UNN through the launch of Brunei Darussalam’s 5G network.

Succeeding in Today’s Digital Age

In today’s digital age, organizations employ a myriad of technology that range from data centers, cloud technology, IoT and multiple devices for employees in hybrid work environments or offsite locations.

Through utilizing Huawei’s cutting-edge technology and services, UNN has also been able to enable digital transformation in network management.

This not only improves operational efficiency, but also increases its capabilities in service delivery, which will help to ensure optimum levels of customer satisfaction.

Engineers from UNN and Huawei perform site integration using the Smart Helmet System for remote monitoring and acceptance during the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, talent remains a crucial factor in deciding an organization’s success. Both Huawei and UNN recognize this and place great on value talent development.

With the objective of equipping UNN staff with knowledge of the latest technology while nurturing local talent in ICT, Huawei has provided technical training courses and opportunities for budding ICT talent to learn from its vast industry knowledge.

With so many common objectives, Huawei and UNN will continue their strategic partnership to develop UNN as a top Digital ICT Infrastructure Provider.

Working Toward Wawasan Brunei 2035

Huawei is committed to being the best partner for UNN, government bodies and businesses in their journeys towards digital transformation.

Other than providing integrated ICT solutions and services, Huawei also offers stable, reliable, secure, and sustainable cloud services to help its customers go digital.

As part of Wawasan Brunei 2035, which aims to create a high standard of living, public utilities, and infrastructure for the benefit of Bruneians, Huawei has also been working closely with various government ministries to enhance ICT infrastructure and nurture the local ICT talent pool.

Since 2015, it has collaborated with local universities such as Universiti of Brunei Darussalam, Universiti of Teknologi Brunei and Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali in conducting its ‘Seeds For The Future’ program to nurture local ICT talent.

Graduates will have the opportunity to continue their ICT career through stints in Huawei, UNN and various other tech companies.

Huawei is committed to opening more pathways to digital transformation, promote local innovation, and helping Brunei Darussalam in achieving Wawasan Brunei 2035.

Creating a Sustainable Future, Together

To tackle the global climate change challenge, Huawei is taking firm action to do our part to build a sustainable future.

By leveraging digital technologies and power electronics technologies, Huawei is committed to helping people and industries in Brunei Darussalam benefit from clean solar energy, accelerating the transition to renewable energy.

Huawei’s extensive partnership with UNN also sees the company’s systematic three-layer approach, ‘Green Site – Green Network – Green Operation’ adopted as one of the key strategies for sustainable network deployment.

With the use of solar and green efficiency solutions, carbon emissions can be effectively reduced through the cutting-edge technology and platforms.

Huawei first established its local office in Brunei Darussalam in 2005, and is committed to playing its part in contributing to this peaceful nation together with its partner organizations for a sustainable environment and future.

“Our partnership with UNN is multifaceted, allowing us to truly showcase what our company has to offer in ICT infrastructure, talent development and sustainability,” Huawei Technologies Brunei, CEO, Tong Wei Shiang commented.

“At the same time, we are focused on the development of the next generation of local ICT talent, in line with Wawasan Brunei 2035’s goals on talent development.

“We are excited for what this partnership with UNN will continue to bring to both parties, and we look forward to working closely with local partners to support Brunei’s National Climate Change Policy and drive Brunei’s sustainability agenda.”
