Collectively Building a Better Connected World

Huawei outlines its corporate strategy at the Global Analyst Summit China, with plans to speed up digital transformation and interconnectivity

Huawei has organized its 13th Global Analyst Summit in Shenzhen, China. The event brought together over 500 analysts and business leaders from the telecom, Internet, finance, and other industries. Focusing on the theme of “Growing Together through Digitalization and Building a Better Connected World”, Huawei will fully elaborate on its corporate strategy, which aims to move towards a Better Connected World. The company will also discuss its strategic thinking, products, and market progress in the areas of cloud computing, IoT, and operations transformation. Representatives from industry organizations including NB-IoT Forum, OpenStack, TM Forum, and The Open Group will also share their views and best practices on industry development.

According to the release, with full connectivity, video has become a basic service of the telecom industry and experience has become a core competence for operators to attract and retain users. Huawei has unveiled a video experience measurement system, U-vMOS, which objectively evaluates 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.

At the summit, Huawei’s Rotating CEO Eric Xu explained the company’s full cloud strategy in detail. He 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.”

William Xu, Huawei Executive Director of the Board, Chief Strategy Marketing Officer said, “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. 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.”

Xu further added, “Customer needs are diverse, and no company can meet them on their own – collaboration with industry partners is essential. 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.”

Ryan Ding, Huawei Executive Director of the Board, President of Huawei’s Products & Solutions commented, “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. 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.”
