Huawei un­veils ‘Cloud’ strat­egy at Con­nect 2016 event

Power Watch India - - EVENTS -

The Huawei Con­nect 2016 event held in Shang­hai, China from Au­gust 31 to Septem­ber 2, 2016 show­cased a wide ar­ray of cloud based so­lu­tions for dif­fer­ent in­dus­tries. Al­most 20,000 ICT in­dus­try lead­ers and ex­perts from over 120 coun­tries gath­ered for the 3-day con­fer­ence on the global ICT (In­for­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tions tech­nol­ogy) ecosys­tem. The event, which was themed ‘Shape the Cloud’, at­tempted to ex­plore cloud era trends and how dif­fer­ent in­dus­tries can achieve dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion by de­vel­op­ing cloud tech­nol­ogy.

It was the first time that Huawei pub­licly gave a com­pre­hen­sive look at its cloud strat­egy. Dur­ing the first key­note, Ken Hu, Huawei’s Ro­tat­ing CEO, ex­plained that the com­pany aims to po­si­tion it­self as the en­abler and driver of an in­tel­li­gent world. He shared that the com­pany is committed to its fo­cus on ICT in­fra­struc­ture, and pro­vid­ing in­no­va­tive cloud tech­nol­ogy. Nearly 70% of the global GDP is com­ing from ur­ban cities and it is im­per­a­tive to make th­ese cities smart. Cloud tech­nol­ogy is set to trans­form the cities with dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion to make them safer and more com­fort­able. How­ever, this calls for an in­te­grated data sys­tem through IoT (internet of things), for bet­ter con­nec­tiv­ity. Also, IoT is evolv­ing the build­ings mak­ing them smarter and more se­cure by op­ti­mis­ing space and en­ergy con­sump­tion. Huawei high­lighted that power IoT so­lu­tions are the cor­ner­stone of build­ing smart grids around the world. A case study was pre­sented wherein, Nige­ria has im­mensely benifit­ted through Huawei’s power IoT used in au­to­matic me­ter­ing in­fra­struc­ture (AMI). The use of me­ters, sen­sors and con­trollers has helped the coun­try in re­duc­ing dis­tri­bu­tion losses and boost­ing rev­enue by al­most 30%.
