Network Recovery and Disaster Relief Following a Flood in Oman
On October 3, 2021, Tropical Cyclone Shaheen slammed into Oman, followed by heavy rainfall, flash floods, and widespread waterlogging. Some telecom equipment was severely damaged, causing significant difficulties for local residents.
On the morning of the same day, Huawei Oman set up a joint work group with the customer. The network assurance team also set out to repair the telecom infrastructure in the affected areas. About 70% of local communications services were restored within 12 hours and 90% within 48 hours. On October 5, the network assurance team purchased supplies for disaster relief from supermarkets and worked with the local government overnight to deliver supplies to the rescue stations in four severely affected areas, helping local people through the difficult time.
Huawei's quick response and timely support for disaster relief were appreciated by local customers, the government, and the community. This is part of our commitment to becoming an active, productive member of local communities.
