Huawei the first authorised cloud provider

Huawei Technologies (Cambodia) Co Ltd, the local arm of the Chinese tech behemoth, has won approval of its cloud service offerings in the Kingdom, a senior telecoms official told The Post.

This makes Huawei Cambodia the first and only authorised cloud service provider in the Kingdom, although it has been delivering such services in the country since 2020, industry publication China Money Network confirms.

Ministry of Post and Telecommunications secretary of state So Visothy said the after processing and reviewing Huawei Cambodia’s online application, the ministry on August 3 issued it a “Consulting and Technical Service Certification Licence” to provide cloud services to companies looking to move their workloads to a cloud infrastructure.

The ministry has its fingers crossed that other major cloud service providers such as Microsoft, Google, Apple and Amazon will apply for a local licence and enter the Cambodian market, he said.

He said the online registration process is easy, time-saving, efficient and very transparent, and lauded the electronic system as an “achievement of the ministry” that continues to see plenty of companies apply for a wide range of licences.

“I reaffirm that any company can apply for a licence.”

In January last year, Huawei Cambodia signed an agreement with the ministry to provide the Kingdom with the latest information and communications technology (ICT) equipment and a 5G technology training programme.

And two of the Kingdom’s largest mobile operators, Smart Axiata Co Ltd and Viettel (Cambodia) Pte Ltd (MetFone), have also struck deals to use Huawei gear in their 5G networks.

Huawei has provided communications products and services in Cambodia since 1999, and now boasts more than 15 local partners and over 50 local customers in the Kingdom.
