SINGAPORE, Oct. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Huawei was presented the 2014 Asia Pacific Networking Equipment Product Line Differentiation Award at the 2014 Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific Best Practices Awards held on the 16th of October at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Singapore.

This Frost & Sullivan Product Line Differentiation Award is presented each year to the company who has exhibited competitive strategy leadership and created a differentiated value proposition for its product line to meet the needs of its customers in the market.

To meet the different demands from consumers and with the availability of the public cloud, IT service providers have begun to focus on network optimization. This includes increased customization to utilize resources efficiently across the networks and data centers. To address the growing demand for network optimization, there is a necessity for quality products that are technology focused and well-positioned to meet the needs of the industry.

With continued technology innovation and high-cost performance matched by industry proven expertise, Huawei has continually stayed ahead of the competition.

"Huawei has demonstrated industry-leading growth in its enterprise networking business in 2013. Apart from solid financial performance, the company has showcased innovation by launching the agile switch, S12700 series. Huawei has continued to offer differentiated products at competitive pricing. These new switches leverage on Huawei’s technological strengths to offer SDN-ready full programmable switches with high forwarding capability and switching performance," said Danni Xu, Industry Analyst, Asia Pacific Data Center and Cloud, ICT, Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific.

Huawei’s strong brand name, vast product and solutions portfolio, and continued efforts to penetrate potential growth markets have made them a strong competitor in the global networking equipment market.

"A key differentiation point for Huawei has been its Ethernet Network Processor. The new processor offers greater hardware performance, especially in an Ethernet environment, and brings forth Huawei’s SDN strategy. The company has been successful in implementing the solution in plenty of customer projects covering a wide range of industry sectors, and also across global markets including Europe, America, Latin America and Africa," Xu added.

The 2014 Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific Best Practices Awards recognize companies across industries commending their diligence, commitment, and innovative business strategies required to advance in the global marketplace.
