At Huawei’s 13th Global Analyst Summit held in Shenzhen, China, Huawei elaborated its corporate strategy to focus on cloud computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), and operations transformation.
“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,” elucidated Huawei’s Rotating CEO Eric Xu.
Eric Xu stated that Huawei plans to deliver ROADS experience, enabling the operators seize new marketing opportunities including IoT, video and cloud services. Huawei assists operators and enterprises to migrate networks and operations systems to the cloud and help operators establish advantages in agile operations. In the enterprise business, Huawei leverages cloud computing, SDN, and Big Data technologies to facilitate enterprise digitalization towards agile and smart operations.
“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,” remarked Ryan Ding, Huawei Executive Director of the Board, President of Huawei’s Products Solutions.
“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,” he added.
The event brought together over 500 analysts and business leaders from the telecom, Internet, finance, and other industries. Representatives from industry organizations including NB-IoT Forum, OpenStack, TM Forum, and The Open Group also shared their views and best practices on industry development at the event.
