The leading ICT solutions provider Huawei brought together 500 analysts and business leaders from various sectors, ranging from the telecom, Internet, finance, and other industries at its 13th Global Analyst Summit in Shenzhen, China.
Focusing on the theme of ‘Growing Together through Digitalization and Building a Better Connected World’, Huawei presents its strategy, products, market progress, especially in the areas of cloud computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), and operations transformation. The leaders at the summit include NB-IoT Forum, OpenStack, TM Forum, and The Open Group, who would also provide the overview of their development.
"Global digitalization is accelerating, and this is improving efficiency and user experience in many areas, including vertical industries, public services, and every aspect of our lives. Our Global Connectivity Index (GCI) 2016 reveals that global connectivity improved by 5% in 2015," remarked William Xu, Huawei Executive Director of the Board, Chief Strategy Marketing Officer. "We can work together in the areas of enhancing connectivity, enabling the digital transformation of vertical industries, improving the connectivity experience and expanding access under all scenarios, and to accelerate global digitalization."
At the event, Huawei unveiled a video experience measurement system, U-vMOS, capable of measuring the video quality, interaction, and the visual experience of various services on different networks and screens. The system is open to the entire video industry, and has been recognized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).
Elucidating the cloud strategy of the company, Huawei's Rotating CEO Eric Xu said, "At the Huawei Global Analyst Summit 2015, we proposed the Real-time, On-demand, All-online, DIY, and Social (ROADS) experience model to define the features of a superior user experience. This year, we have introduced the full ‘cloudification’ strategy, which focuses on delivering a ROADS experience. At the core of Huawei's full cloudification strategy is the full reconstruction of ICT infrastructure in four respects – equipment, network, services, and operations. The strategy aims to create systematic strengths in pooled hardware resources, fully distributed software architecture, and full automation. As a leading global ICT infrastructure provider, Huawei is committed to becoming an advocate, promoter, and leader of full cloudification."
In the enterprise business, Huawei focuses on cloud computing, SDN, and Big Data technologies to facilitate enterprise digitalization towards agile and smart operations. In the consumer business, Huawei is working hard to develop a high-end brand, deliver premium products, win with quality and services, and establish an ecosystem that focuses on consumer experience. Eric Xu added, "In the carrier business, we aim to deliver a ROADS experience and help operators develop their competitiveness to seize new market opportunities including IoT, video, and cloud services. We will also help migrate networks and operations systems to the cloud and help operators establish advantages in agile operations."
"A Better Connected World raises requirements for networks. Connections, bandwidth, latency, and data storage must all achieve 100-fold improvements. More importantly, networks of the future must automatically accommodate diverse use scenarios, including massive numbers of connected things, high-bandwidth services like video and virtual reality, and industrial applications that require a low latency and high reliability," said Ryan Ding, Huawei Executive Director of the Board, President of Huawei's Products & Solutions. "Huawei will focus on ICT infrastructure and smart devices; invest over the long term; fully unleash the potential of connectivity, ultra-broadband, and data; and develop agile architecture and open platforms to accelerate the digital transformation of our customers, including operators."
William Xu added: "We must join forces with industry partners to build an open ecosystem. We continue to hold fast to our pipe strategy, focusing on ICT infrastructure and smart devices. To meet these needs, we have forged extensive partnerships with consulting firms, application developers, system integrators, and channel partners. Through this commitment to openness, collaboration, and shared success, we will create value for our customers, contribute to a healthy ICT ecosystem, and drive social progress."
