The firm has thanked its channel base for helping it gain more share in important vertical markets

Huawei’s senior UK management has thanked partners for helping it gain more market share over the past year in key verticals.

The firm held its UK enterprise partner summit in London yesterday and highlighted the progress that it had made in gaining UK market share.

“Thanks to the work our committed partners, Huawei is making significant progress in the UK market across a range vertical sectors including Public Sector, Finance and Commercial," said Robert Yang, Huawei UK enterprise managing director.

He added that the vendor had played its part in making sure that the channel was given support through the sales process.

"The goal is to always enable our partners to develop their service capability and become self-sufficient. We’re continuing to invest in all areas our business in order to support our partners to grow their business and increase our market share," he said.

Other themes at the event, which has been running for seven years, included encouragement for managed service players that were looking to add the vendor's technology into their offerings.

Over the past few months the firm has used events like MWC to position itself as a channel friendly player in the comms, networking and cloud areas.

Touching on some of the major trends in the industry, including digital transformation, the firm set about underlining to the audience of 150 plus partners that it was keen to arm them with the right technologies.

“Traditional IT suppliers are being asked to do much more for their customers. Our ecosystem provides partners with the ability to supply, deliver, support and manage the widest range of market-leading technology - from the datacenter to the network edge – thanks to our huge investment in R&D and a simple and consistent channel programme," said Michael Rae, Huawei UK, enterprise channel director.
