The sixth edition of the annual Tech Innovation Awards, formerly known as the Nigeria Tech Innovation & Telecom Awards (NTITA), also referred to as Nigeria’s ICT Oscars Awards, saw Huawei, a major provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, reaffirm its position as a leader in technological advancement by winning two major awards.
The Nigeria Tech Innovation Awards (TIA) judges chose Huawei for the “Excellence in 5G Technological Innovations” award and the “Network Infrastructure Provider of the Year” award from a long list of several hundred businesses.
The honour was given to the company as a sign of the great regard that Africa’s tech community has for Huawei’s ongoing efforts to expand the potential of mobile and digital technology.
The jury gave Huawei high marks not only for its dedication to advancing innovation in the field of smart devices through careful research and development (R&D) on artificial intelligence and its own chipsets but also for its status as a significant partner for the Nigerian telecom infrastructure market.
Huawei is a top global supplier of smart products and ICT (information and communications technology) infrastructure.
We are dedicated to bringing digital to every person, home, and company for a fully connected, intelligent world. We do this by integrating solutions across four core domains: telecom networks, IT, smart devices, and cloud services.
TIA celebrates the energy, creativity, and commitment of the people, government, state actors, and private enterprises driving the sector, according to Mr. Akin Naphtal, CEO of InstinctWave, the event organizer. He praised Huawei for her innovative prowess focused on customer needs and urged the company not to relent in its contribution to Nigerian society through innovation and to take pride in supporting its partners by driving digital transformation.
Other notable wins were Dimension Data, Airtel Nigeria, Avanti Satellite Communications, IHS Nigeria, and the Nigerian Communications Commission. The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) won two awards: Outstanding Telecom Regulator of the Year and Telecom Industry Leader for 2021 for its Executive Vice Chairman/CEO, Prof. Umaru Garba Danbatta.
The top tech personalities in Nigeria are GMD/GCEO of VDT Communications Limited, Abiodun Omoniyi, and Managing Director, Ayotunde Coker. The ADEF, ATCON, and other significant stakeholders collaborate on Nigeria’s most prestigious IT and telecom event. The event is run by InstinctWave, a business with an ISO certification.
Naphtal added that Huawei has made significant investments in fundamental research, focusing on innovations in technology that advance society. With more than 180,000 people and operations in over 170 nations and territories, Huawei has established itself as a worldwide innovation powerhouse.
