Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise (ALE), a global specialist in bespoke communication, networking, and cloud solutions, has recently celebrated top-performing partners at its Connex 2023 partner event.

Held in Hong Kong on November 23, the event brought together over 40 partner organisations from Hong Kong and Taiwan. The day was dedicated to discussing plans for future innovation in key sectors such as healthcare, financial services, education, and transportation.

The event’s theme, ‘Technology for Good’, highlighted how ALE is harnessing its expertise and partnerships to help partners drive sustainable business growth and make a significant societal impact. Discussions focused on how enterprises could adopt digital age communications for secure business communications and how ALE's digital age network offerings could provide an adaptable, scalable infrastructure to the Hong Kong and Taiwan markets.

“It's important for us to acknowledge and recognise our business partners for their exceptional performance during events like Connex23, and focus on customer success as the foundation on which our joint success and growth is built on. We couldn’t have achieved this growth without the support of our partners,” he added.
