What’s Next for Huawei?
September 24, 2020 News


During the Huawei Connect 2020, Peng Zhongyang, Board Member, President of Enterprise BG, Huawei, stated that the shift to a new paradigm of industrial digital transformation is urgently needed for the development of our future intelligent society.

“To drive industrial digitalisation and construct the new paradigm, we need to focus on clients’ demands and dreams, realise the new paradigm by scenario-based innovation and through the synergy across five tech domains to establish a digital ecosystem for mutual benefits with joint creation while creating new value for industries”

Following the US announcements on Huawei and other Chinese tech companies, the entire industry is pretty much heading towards a period of uncertainty. While Peng is clearly focused on Huawei moving forward, the journey may not be a smooth one.

At the media briefing, Guo Ping, Rotating Chairman for Huawei said that while the ban will surely have an impact on their business, Huawei is still certain they are able to go forward as there are other customers that are still willing to work with them. For Huawei, mutual benefit and collaboration are the best efforts for the global industry to move forward.

As nations around the world slowly bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic, Huawei is working with their partners to expand the network capacity to make sure everyone stays connected. They were able to do so in a short time span and continue to provide tech solutions to support initiatives by their partners.

“Communication with our customers have now become frequent. Connectivity is the foundation for the digital economy and we will continue to work with our partners worldwide to support their development of the digital economy”.

This includes focusing on the converging of the five tech domains (connectivity, computing, AI, cloud and network) to enable digital transformation for different industries. For this to happen, 5G will be a key enabler to create the ecosystem needed.

  • In the network domain, Huawei has proposed the concept of intelligent connectivity, aiming to deliver a hyper-automated network that offers ubiquitous gigabit access and a deterministic experience, and to enable intelligent upgrades of major business systems of governments and enterprises.
  • In the computing domain, Huawei is committed to providing diverse computing power to customers, decoupling software from hardware to adapt its compute to different processing needs, including x86 and Kunpeng.
  • In the cloud service domain, Huawei has established 23 regions worldwide, attracting over 1.5 million developers.
  • In the AI domain, Huawei aims to better integrate AI into the major business systems of governments and enterprises, using know-how and data to build the core competency of AI systems.

On 5G, he added that there is no exact definition to what exactly is “clean 5G”. Huawei follows and adheres to all requirements and regulations required by governments for 5G, just like any other provider. As a company, the certainties provided by governments give direction to them in how to implement the technology.

“Defining clean 5G requires rational standards and should not be based on politicians. Countries will make their own rational choices based on facts. As a leading 5G provider, we continue to provide tech and services to our customers. We are now focusing on conversing the five tech domains to enable the digital transformation of different industries”.

The essence of business is to “make the cake bigger” and achieve win-win results rather than compete in the zero-sum game. To this end, Huawei proposes to build a “digital ecosystem cube” from three dimensions.

The first dimension is to target the future of digitalisation, gain insights into the unsatisfied demands from numerous segmented scenarios in various industries, which is the premise of “the bigger cake”. The second dimension is to aggregate different capabilities of various partners and fully play to their strengths, which is the basis of “baking a bigger cake”. The third is to develop multiple approaches for collaboration and business models and make a conscious effort to create and share value together. This is the permanent force that continually drives the expansion of market size.
