Huawei Technologies presented its latest solutions for data centers at the Industrial Digital Transformation Summit at the MWC in Barcelona and shared a vision of an innovative future. Huawei’s president for Europe, Li Peng, said that by 2030 we will enter a fully digital world where telecommuting will become normal, and this year, it is estimated that 50 percent of global GDP will come from the digital economy.
Together with global partners, we have helped millions in online work and companies in developing new business models – he said, adding that more than 700 smart cities are being built around the world and are ahead of the ‘digital decade in Europe’. He points out that they have launched five 5G innovation centers across Europe and are committed to sustainable development and are researching how to reduce their carbon footprint, which is said to be one of their priorities. They also cite agricultural solutions that bring value to farmers in Switzerland, where they can inspect the land drastically faster, and with the help of 5G, they have reduced the use of herbicides by 90 percent.
He also presented the latest achievements in the segment of technological solutions intended for university campuses and intelligent data centers that reduce energy consumption by more than 14 percent.
University campuses have high demands on data center storage, computing power and energy efficiency, and face challenges in managing their large assets. In order to solve this problem, the company has renewed and upgraded its network architecture, internal network systems and IT equipment, creating an environment that fully meets the needs of the future. In this segment, development has further put technological advances in online meetings, 4K video conferencing and wireless projections, while reducing consumption by 38 percent.
A comprehensive data center solution leads the trend of cloud-based development and intensive and environmentally friendly development, while Huawei’s intelligent campus solution enables completely wireless access, network architecture renewal and IT infrastructure hyperconvergence. Through continuous innovation in ICT and digital infrastructure, Huawei has laid a solid foundation for the development of an intelligent world – said Chen Banghua, Vice President of Huawei Enterprise Business Group (BG).
Huawei talked to global partners and representatives of global companies about ICT trends, the future and the combination of digital technology, business value and environmentally friendly development.
“One of the company’s main goals is to provide all industries with a fast, efficient, reliable and sustainable data center system with innovation in data warehousing, more efficient use of processing power in data processing, greater reliability and a more stable network,” said Li Peng.
Numerous state-of-the-art solutions have already been implemented in various industries. Advances in systems used by Huawei in the energy industry are reflected in better protection and control of infrastructure, the logistics sector and more stable public transport, as well as in the financial industries for which Huawei has implemented a solution to the lack of network capacity during day-to-day operations.
In the fight against climate change, one of Huawei’s main missions, the company continues to develop innovative solutions for industries, build simplified, environmentally friendly and intelligent ICT infrastructures, and at the same time reduce the energy consumption it uses.
