Huawei Launches Global OpenLabs to Foster Industry Innovation

Event brought together representatives from the industry, academia, governments and research institutes

Huawei hosted the Huawei Innovation Day Asia-Pacific on November 2, 2016 under the theme of ‘The Brilliance of Exploration.’ This event brought together representatives from the industry, academia, governments and research institutes.

With a focus on topics about exploration in the future, attendees shared their exploration themes and innovation practices, and their ideas on how to adapt to future changes. To help enable these ideas further Huawei plans to invest in OpenLabs in Asia Pacific.

Huawei will team up with industry partners to build a flourishing ecosystem in the region, and drive growth through innovation. This will enable Huawei and its partners to help industries go digital in the new ICT era and face up to the challenges of the intelligent world.

At the Huawei Innovation Day Asia-Pacific, Neil Evans, Senior Solution Director of Huawei Australia, delivered a speech titled ‘New Era of Alliances in the ICT Ecosystem.’ He elaborated on Huawei’s philosophy, attitude, and initiatives for the New ICT era, as well as its exploration practices and progress to date. He said that Huawei aims to be the nourishing “soil and energy” of the ecosystem which will push the entire industry forward, and support ongoing social progress through strong, strategic alliances.

Building OpenLabs is part of Huawei’s strategy for creating an ICT ecosystem. Huawei hopes to work with system integrators (SIs), independent software vendors (ISVs), and independent hardware vendors (IHVs) to develop solutions for different industry customers. Working together with partners, Huawei aims to build joint innovation ecosystems, drive industry transformation, enable the new industrial revolution, and achieve shared business success.

Huawei aims to leverage the power of OpenLabs to bring together leading global and regional service partners. It will do this by:

  • Collaborating with partners to develop solutions and innovation capacity for industries, expanding the market, and sharing the benefits.
  • Building regional innovation centers, partner development centers, solution development centers, and industry experience centers.
  • Huawei focuses its strategy on ICT infrastructure, which it calls the ‘pipe strategy.’ It collaborates openly with industry partners to digitally restructure traditional industries, and power the new industrial revolution.

Huawei’s OpenLabs are located all around the globe. To date, Huawei has opened OpenLabs in Munich, Mexico City, Dubai, Singapore, Moscow, and China, and has over 400 solution partners worldwide. Huawei is leading new ICT by creating an industry ecosystem, customizing industry solutions to meet local needs, and generating value for customer business success.

Huawei plans to build OpenLabs in Asia Pacific (including in Singapore and Bangkok). These OpenLabs will deliver a Lab-as-a-Service experience for customers and partners in three areas: Smart City and Safe City, Smart Grid, Industry Cloud and Internet of Things (IoT). The labs will be functionally positioned to play four roles:

Since it opened in August this year, Huawei’s Singapore OpenLab has signed agreements with over 30 solutions partners and has hosted more than 100 customer and partner delegations. Representatives from ecosystem partners also shared their experience of joint exploration and innovation in various industries.
