Chinese telecom giant Huawei on Thursday launched its artificial intelligence-backed cloud storage service in Brazil, as part of its expansion plans in the South American country.

Erik Schanz, the company's business development manager, said Huawei Cloud is set to compete in Brazil, Latin America's largest economy, with US companies that provide similar services, such as Microsoft, Amazon and Google.

In a statement, the company noted that "another important benefit of Huawei Cloud is linked to the development in Brazil of 5G technology, whose main characteristics are its very high speed ... and high connectivity."

According to Huawei, the cloud is capable of storing massive amounts of big data, and with the addition of 5G is ideal for logistical applications, telemedicine, intelligent homes, and augmented or virtual reality.

The company also presented its Huawei Cloud Partner Network (HCPN), which has 291 partners in Latin America, including 80 in Brazil.
