JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, October 6, 2021 / APO Group / –
Huawei‘s annual flagship event (e.Huawei.com) for the global ICT industry – HUAWEI CONNECT 2021 – kicked off on September 23, 2021. Huawei’s rotating chairman Eric Xu opened the event with a keynote address titled “Continuously innovating for faster digitization”.
This year’s event, themed “Go Digital,” explores how digital technology can better integrate with business scenarios and industry know-how to address critical business challenges, and how parties stakeholders can work together more effectively to foster an open industrial ecosystem and foster shared success. The event is expected to feature four conferences, five summits and 66 sessions, with more than 200 speakers, including industry visionaries, business leaders, leading technology experts and ecosystem partners. It will be streamed live in 11 languages on Huawei’s corporate website and by its media partners. The event will also include online exhibitions, remote tours of exhibition halls and open roundtables, enabling online interaction and unique experiences.
In his speech, Xu explained how helping industries go digital is a critical aspect of Huawei’s mission to bring digital to every person, home and organization for a fully connected and smart world.
Xu said, “Digital development is based on digital technology. For digital technology to remain relevant, we must continue to innovate and create value. Cloud, AI and networks are three essential digital technologies. Xu went on to share some of the progress Huawei has made in these three areas, what Huawei is doing to enable low-carbon development and the direction the industry is taking as a whole.
Xu explained that HUAWEI CLOUD, the company’s cloud service that launched just four years ago, has already brought together more than 2.3 million developers, 14,000 consulting partners and 6,000 technology partners, and has also made over 4,500 services available in the HUAWEI CLOUD Marketplace. . It has become an important platform for internet companies, businesses and governments to digitize their organizations.
At the event, Xu launched the industry’s first distributed cloud native service called UCS – a ubiquitous cloud native service available on HUAWEI CLOUD. With UCS, Huawei plans to provide businesses with a consistent experience while using cloud-native applications that are not constrained by geographic, inter-cloud or traffic limitations, thereby accelerating digital transformation across industries.
Huawei’s full AI portfolio and all scenarios released in 2018 is also progressing as planned. Its MindSpore framework has become the mainstream AI computing framework in China. Meanwhile, the Atlas 900 cluster, along with cloud services based on it, currently serve more than 300 companies, supporting training for many models, including the large HUAWEI CLOUD Pangu models. HUAWEI CLOUD ModelArts has made developing AI applications incredibly easy with its comprehensive scenario-based services. The ultimate goal of ModelArts is to enable each engineer to independently develop their own AI applications.
Xu also presented Huawei’s innovations in networking. As organizations go digital, they tend to see exponential growth in network complexity. To address this, Huawei has pioneered solutions for global networks based on the concept of Autonomous Driving Network (ADN). The company has worked with clients in the finance, education and healthcare industries to innovate and deploy new applications, and create self-fulfilling, self-healing, self-optimizing and self-sustaining networks.
Xu went on to explain how Huawei is using digital technology to support low-carbon development, as part of global efforts to achieve peak CO2 emissions and carbon neutrality. Specifically, Huawei is focusing on three key initiatives:
Invest and innovate in energy saving technologies to provide more energy efficient ICT products for a low carbon ICT industry; Invest in innovations where power electronics and digital technologies converge to promote clean energy and the digitization of traditional energy; and Provide digital technology to help all sectors go digital and reduce carbon emissions.
Zhang Ping’an, CEO of Cloud BU and President of Huawei Consumer Cloud Service, explained the strategic initiatives of HUAWEI CLOUD and launched new services and products at the event. “The key to successful digital transformation is to think cloud native and act cloud native,” said Zhang. “HUAWEI CLOUD joins our customers and partners to dive into digital and explore the potential of Everything as a Service – Infrastructure as a Service for global accessibility, Technology as a Service for flexible innovation and Expertise as a Service for excellence shared. ” Zhang announced two new regions in Mexico and Ulanqab in China, and launched 10 new HUAWEI CLOUD services. The announcement included MacroVerse – HUAWEI CLOUD aPaaS, OptVerse AI Solver, HUAWEI CLOUD Stack 8.1, SparkRTC – a real-time audio and video service, and Pangu, a large model for drug molecules.
Among the customers and partners present were Christophe Ozer, Head of Orange Cloud (Orange Flexible Engine) APAC; Wu Qiang, vice president of Tianjin Port Holdings; Chen Haining, general manager of the IT department of Shanghai Pudong Development Bank; and Jiang Chuanrong, chairman of Shanghai Mirror Pictures. They described their experience of joint innovation with Huawei in their digital transformation. Wu Qiang said, “Tianjin Port is one of the top 10 ports in the world, with an annual throughput of nearly 20 million containers. HUAWEI CLOUD OptVerse AI Solver helps us improve our planning speed over 100 times based on tens of millions of variables. and constraints, maximize resource planning and increase the efficiency of operations. “
Xu concluded his speech by: “Continuous innovation has so far been the driving force behind digitization. In the future, if we hope to achieve more ambitious digitization goals, continuous innovation will remain the key. So let’s keep innovating for a better future. “
Huawei is hosting HUAWEI CONNECT 2021 online from September 23 to October 31. The theme of this year’s event is Dive Into Digital. We’ll dig deeper into the practical application of technologies like cloud, AI, and 5G across industries, and how they can make organizations of all shapes and sizes more efficient, more versatile, and ultimately more resilient as they go. as we move towards the recouping economy.
