Huawei’s media cloud to house Al Jazeera’s analog content

Doha, Qatar, January 2, 2017 – Al Jazeera Media Network and Huawei, a global leading ICT solutions provider, have entered a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to explore possible avenues of cooperation to transform the Network’s online platform using media cloud solutions, in a bid to increase the Network’s online viewership and revenues.

Based on the terms of the MoU, both parties will work together to examine the best available options to launch the next generation platform for Al Jazeera’s online content, in a bid to enhance the Network’s online offering.
