This morning, Huawei Connect 2020 opened in Shanghai on September 23. As a global annual flagship event for the ICT industry, the Connectivity Conference has always been a platform for Huawei to announce major strategies.
“As we all know, Huawei is encountering great difficulties. The continuous suppression by the United States and other countries has brought a lot of pressure to our operations. Survival is our main line,” said Guo Ping, Huawei’s rotating chairman. “Dumas once said that all the wisdom of human beings are contained in these two words: waiting and hope. We see that the ICT industry is facing huge development opportunities, and the government and enterprises are fully entering into digitization and intelligence. Huawei hopes to cooperate with Partner to open a new chapter together.”
The Full Connect Conference over the years has always been an opportunity for Huawei to announce a new ecological strategy. In 2016, Huawei looked forward to the vision of an intelligent society and called for building a Costa Rica-style ecosystem with global partners; in 2017, it clarified its goal of becoming one of the five global clouds; in 2018, it released its AI strategy; Computing strategies are described.
In 2020, with the completion of large-scale deployment of 5G around the world, five technologies and five opportunities of connection, cloud, AI, computing and industry applications will be brought together in an unprecedented way. New value in the industry”. Huawei emphasizes that it will focus on applying ICT technology to all walks of life, and cooperate with partners to provide scenario-based solutions to help enterprises achieve business success and the government to achieve the goals of prospering, benefiting the people, and good governance.
Guo Ping, Rotating Chairman of Huawei, delivered a speech at the Full Connect Conference.
Huawei believes that in 2020, when the government and traditional enterprises are fully digitalized and intelligent, the ICT industry is facing huge development opportunities. Huawei hopes to open a new chapter with partners in this process.
Guo Ping shared the advanced practice of Huawei’s intelligent technology in enterprises, industrial parks and smart cities, and showed how to provide scenario-based solutions through the combination of ICT technology and industry knowledge, which can truly create the main business of the government and enterprises. value. In the next stage, Huawei’s focus is to work with partners to apply ICT technology to all walks of life, help enterprises achieve business success, and help governments achieve business development, benefit the people, and good governance.
Huawei continues to invest in key businesses. In the field of connectivity, Huawei has put forward the concept of intelligent connectivity to create a ubiquitous gigabit, deterministic experience, and hyper-automated network, enabling the intelligent upgrade of government and enterprises; in the field of computing, Huawei is committed to providing customers with diverse computing power , adopts the design of software and hardware decoupling to adapt to different processors such as X86 and Kunpeng; in the field of cloud services, Huawei Cloud currently has 23 regions around the world and has developed more than 1.5 million developers; in the field of AI, Huawei Committed to applying AI to the main business systems of government and enterprises, and building the core competitiveness of AI systems through knowledge-driven and data-driven.
“How to realize the digitalization of the scene mainly depends on three key elements. The first is the technology, and it is necessary to be good at integrating various ICT technologies with the core business,” said Peng Zhongyang, Huawei Director and President of the Enterprise BG. “The second is to understand the industry, to be in awe of the industry, and to have an in-depth insight into the industry. The last is real practice. The digitization of the scene is not just talk on paper, but the unity of knowledge and action, to explore and create in practice.”
The communication network realizes the connection between people; in the new digital era, through the five-machine collaboration of connection, cloud, computing, AI, and application, it realizes the all-round and multi-level connection of people, things and information.
At the conference, Huawei listed a large number of cases of technology implementation: in the coal mining industry, Huawei’s 5-machine collaboration has demonstrated the prospect of digital transformation. The company has transformed more than 10 business scenarios of “2 sides + 5 streams” in coal mines, and promoted the digitization and intelligence of the mine’s entire business by digitizing the mine infrastructure. Massive data flow replaces the operation process of many workers in the mine, and AI-driven machines dig coal intelligently. The remote control of the mine is realized, the labor efficiency is doubled, and it is safer and more controllable, allowing more miners to “dig coal in suits, ties, and coffee”.
Peng Zhongyang, Director of Huawei and President of Enterprise BG, was at the meeting.
The essence of business in the digital age is to make a bigger cake, a positive-sum game, not a zero-sum game. Huawei hopes that the entire industry can build a “digital ecological cube” from three dimensions, aiming at the future of digitalization and digging deeply into the unsatisfied scene demands of various industries. This is the premise of making the cake right. Secondly, it is necessary to gather N kinds of ability partners, and each has their own expertise. This is the basis for making a bigger cake. Finally, it is necessary to create N kinds of cooperation methods and business models to achieve symbiosis, co-creation and sharing. This is the eternal power source of making the cake bigger.
Wisdom and intelligence are profoundly changing the global innovation landscape and economic structure, as well as changing production, lifestyle and industrial organization models. Huawei said that in the past 30 years of globalization practice, it has gradually forged 68 digital scenarios, covering research and development, manufacturing, global marketing, finance and other fields.
For people, the most concerning thing about Huawei right now is the supply of chips. Both the AI and intelligent businesses advocated by Huawei require chips. Because of the US ban, there has been some news that Huawei has encountered resistance in the supply chain. At the same time, AMD and Intel have announced that they have obtained a license from the US government. Supply chips to Huawei.
At the Fully Connected Conference, Huawei responded to some questions. “We are still evaluating the specific data on the impact of the U.S. ban on Huawei’s chip supply,” Guo Ping said. “In terms of to B business, our current chip reserves are sufficient. In terms of mobile phone chips, since Huawei consumes hundreds of millions of mobile phone chips every year, we are actively looking for ways. We know that many American companies are also applying for export licenses from the US government. We believe that the opportunities in the ICT industry far outweigh the competition. The US ban not only affected Huawei, but also caused losses to companies in Japan, the US and other countries and regions. Huawei will continue to adhere to a globalized industrial strategy.”
It has also recently been reported that Qualcomm is applying to the US government for a license to supply Huawei. Guo Ping said that Qualcomm has always been an important partner of Huawei. In the past ten years, Huawei has been purchasing Qualcomm chips, and Huawei is happy to use Qualcomm chips to manufacture mobile phones. On the other hand, Huawei has strong chip design capabilities, and is also willing to help other partners to jointly improve manufacturing, materials and other technologies in the chip production process, “helping them is also helping Huawei itself.”
Huawei said the ban would not affect the company’s R&D investment in chips. “We have 700 million users, and we will continue to innovate at the operating system, HMS and other levels to serve users well. The current situation has strengthened Huawei’s determination to build HMS, but the purpose of the ecosystem is to serve more users, it must It is open, and we hope to cooperate with more manufacturers around the world to help developers better serve users,” said Zhang Ping’an, President of Huawei’s Consumer Business Cloud Service.
Connectivity, computing, cloud and AI technologies are like electricity more than 100 years ago, and industrial applications are like household appliances and industrial electrification. At the end of his speech, Guo Ping extended an invitation to all industry partners: “We hope to become the infrastructure of the new era and help our partners to do “electrification”. Let’s work together to create value for customers and achieve business success together.”
