stc Bahrain partners with Huawei for CDN


stc Bahrain and Huawei are collaborating on a Content Delivery Network (CDN) serving multiple industries and sectors regionally and globally.

Through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the two will provide an "exceptional digital user experience", within and beyond Bahrain.

Specifically, both parties will localise a wide variety of digital content ranging from dynamic to multi-purpose content types, supported by cutting edge full-convergence technologies to enable multiple-device access for best results.

Eng. Nezar Banabeela, CEO of stc Bahrain, commented: “We are focused on revolutionizing the network services in Bahrain and to better serve the region with demanded services. Our CDN plans with our long-term partners Huawei will accelerate Bahrain and the region’s positioning as an ideal digital network hub.”

As heavy video and gaming traffic have resulted in the need to provide optimum streaming experiences for users, the CDN service nodes coupled with stc Bahrain’s robust infrastructure and transmission links will allow faster data transfers that are needed for loading internet content. This will provide an ideal opportunity for service providers in various sectors to store their content securely with enhanced availability and performance, to avoid unnecessary round-trip delays.

Complementing that, Caohongyu, CEO of Huawei Bahrain added: “We at Huawei Bahrain, with our valuable partners stc Bahrain, share a common vision to put Bahrain in the forefront of digital services in the region and this CDN initiative is one step towards this journey, where we are growing our future business by meeting consumer needs. Huawei stays committed to deliver the best-in-class technology and services to the Kingdom of Bahrain.”
