Huawei Technologies Co is making strides to help global telecom carriers accelerate their digital transformation with cutting-edge technologies. According to You Jiangtao, vice-president of global technical service at Huawei, ICT infrastructure has become the foundation of the intelligent world. Being green, efficient, secure, and intelligent are key requirements to deliver the ultimate experience and support open innovation.
Huawei has achieved a major milestone in 2022, with all 15 of its target networks ranked No 1 in benchmarking by the German mobile network testing company Umlaut. This is a testament to the company’s innovations in network simulation, planning, and optimization for high-performance networks.
For many telecom operators, new digital services are key to business growth, and Huawei’s FinTech 2.0 solution provides inclusive financial services for emerging markets. This solution serves more than 30 telecom operators and 400 million users worldwide. Safaricom, a telecom operator in Kenya, for instance, has adopted Huawei’s FinTech solutions to offer payment services. Its market share in Kenya’s mobile payment market is even higher than WeChat Pay and Alipay in China.
Huawei is also ramping up its resources to build a sound ecosystem for digital transformation. The company has a plan to step up investment in ecosystem building. There are two types of partners: the first are partners that have been with Huawei for decades to serve telecom carriers. The second are partners for whom Huawei is developing enterprise-oriented business applications. The company aims to be integrated by others, offering components or products and then allowing its enterprise partners to integrate and deliver them to end-users. Huawei is working on attracting more partners to join its ecosystem.
A top priority for the company is to continually develop the talent and capability of staff. Huawei’s Learning Service provides comprehensive talent development covering both digital leadership and certification in broad ICT skills. In 2022, Huawei has provided training to 160,000 ICT talents worldwide, and over 100,000 engineers are certified by Huawei every year.
Huawei is committed to accelerating the digital transformation of global telecom carriers by offering cutting-edge technologies and solutions that can support open innovation. With its focus on green, efficient, secure, and intelligent ICT infrastructure, Huawei is driving the intelligent world forward.
