At MWC 2019 earlier this year, Huawei Enterprise introduced the latest AI applications in the fields of smart city, finance and retail, and our digital platform which integrates cloud, IoT, and other emerging technologies to simplify digital transformation. We are therefore very pleased to confirm that all of the above mentioned products and solutions will also be on display at Eco Connect South Africa 2019, and that we will have experts from all over the globe and South Africa to showcase them.

Three products in particular will be:

• Huawei OceanStor Dorado all-flash storage, which is a high-end product for the enterprise business market, offering both reliability and high performance.
