The IT Awards have been presented by the Vogel IT Insider portals for nine years now. Readers of all portals were able to vote for the IT companies of the year from April to the end of August. All winning companies received their awards in silver, gold and platinum at a festive awards ceremony on October 26 at the Maximilians Hotel in Augsburg.

“We are very proud to have received this award as part of the reader vote for the IT Awards. The readers of the Insider portals trust in Huawei’s innovative products and appreciate the added value they experience in day-to-day use,” says Kevin Liu, Managing Director, Huawei Germany Enterprise Business Group.

“In the “WLAN” category, the Huawei AirEngine 8771-X1T access point (AP) was awarded gold by IP-Insider. As a new generation AP for Wi-Fi 7 (802.11be), it has integrated dynamic zoom antennas and supports a maximum of 12 spatial streams. The AP offers simultaneous services on the 2.4 GHz (4×4 MIMO), 5 GHz (4×4 MIMO) and 6 GHz (4×4 MIMO) frequency bands and achieves a device rate of up to 18.67 Gbps. AirEngine 8771-X1T excels in innovative application scenarios such as metacosm, extended reality (XR) telemedicine and collaboration as well as interactive XR teaching methods.

In addition, IP-Insider presented the Silver Award in the “Network Infrastructure” category to Huawei’s CloudEngine S5755-H series multi-GE switches. These are high-quality gigabit access switches with 24 or 48 ports, GE/multi-GE downlink ports, four 10GE, four 25GE and two 100GE uplink ports. The multi-GE switches create a multi-purpose network through Virtual eXtensible LAN (VXLAN)-based network virtualization. A maximum of 48 downlink ports and MACsec support on all ports make CloudEngine S5755-H the best choice in access switches for the Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 7 era.
