Huawei’s Ryan Ding: Digital Innovation Fuels the New Digital Economy
[Shenzhen, China, July 13, 2021] The Huawei 2021 User Group Meeting kicked off today with a keynote address, “Digital Innovation: Powering the New Digital Economy,” by Ryan Ding, Huawei Executive Director and Chairman of the Carrier Business Group .
“ICT infrastructure underpins the digital economy, and digital resilience is becoming a core skill for companies looking to adapt to the changing environment,” said Ding. “Businesses need to go digital and smart if they are to become more resilient. “
According to Ding, there are six key factors for a digital and intelligent transformation:
- Data-driven platform and digitization
- Intelligence enabled by autonomous networks
- Agility required for internal development
- Process-based organization and collaboration
- O&M and provision of efficient network services
- Energy efficiency and green development.
In addition to this, Huawei has focused on innovation in four digital areas – network, technology, services and talent – with the aim of enabling ICT companies to go digital and smart, empower industries, stimulate growth new economic forms and, ultimately, fueling the new digital. economy.

As 5G increases the number of connections tenfold and new technologies like virtualization and cloudification evolve, energy consumption is also increasing. Telecommunications operators excel in providing network connectivity – the basis of ICT infrastructure. But to build new reliable and energy efficient networks, and deliver the best possible experience, operators must innovate in their end-to-end digital networks, including wireless networks, core networks and data centers.
To help operators achieve this goal, Huawei has developed AAU 64T64Rs that contain proprietary multi-antenna algorithms, which help operators improve network experience and performance. The company’s robust solution, with improved software architecture and algorithms, ensures the reliability of cloud-based core networks. Additionally, by using innovative technologies such as energy efficiency simulation and intelligent energy efficiency optimization (PUE), Huawei is helping data centers to maximize their energy efficiency.
Broadband has become essential to our work and everyday life, and users demand a better experience beyond just connectivity. The traditional people-centered approach, in which operators only respond when users report a fault, can no longer meet service requirements. Digital technologies are urgently needed to make operation and maintenance more efficient.
In China, for example, 5G networks have been operational for two years, but only 9.7% of data traffic is offloaded to 5G. This figure is far from the target of 30%. To address this issue, local operators’ business and network services have increased the network optimization requirements for factors such as 5G device penetration rate, 5G service activation rate, 5G DOU (internet traffic). monthly per user), 5G and 5G coverage. duration of the campsite.
Huawei has creatively applied its digital technologies to the planning, construction, maintenance and optimization of complex networks, enabling operators to go digital and intelligence faster. For example, 360-degree site surveys and smart acceptance checks can make digital and remote work a reality. With smart forecasting, smart one-click diagnostics, and proactive care plans, the O&M process will go digital and smart faster. Convergent OSS and BSS data, as well as the optimization capabilities of digital networks that have opened up to operators, allow them to better cover blind spots and to conduct precision marketing. Operators will then see their network and business services collaborate better and rapidly increase the ratio of users who have a 5G device, have access to a 5G network and also subscribe to a 5G plan. This will ultimately ensure that more data traffic is offloaded to 5G.
As 5G networks are deployed commercially on a larger scale, we are seeing more new digital services, including new 5G voice services, 5G messaging and 5GtoB. In 5GtoB, 5G supports flexible data collection, rapid transmission, and timely computing, enabling companies to connect different production segments and acquire production data faster. This has helped create a database that supports the digital and smart transformation of the manufacturing industry. In a hot and dusty steel mill, for example, streaming live footage allows for remote control capabilities, but only with 5G is it possible to remotely control multiple cranes simultaneously. This can improve the working environment and the job safety of crane operators, while increasing productivity.
Digital talent is the foundation of digital and smart innovation. With more than 1,300 expert trainers, 31 training centers and experience working with 260 operators, Huawei Training Academy provides skills consulting, delivery and certification services to retrain employees.
At the end of his speech, Ding pointed out that Huawei has implemented more than 100 benchmark projects in the manufacturing sector alone, resulting in the digital and smart transformation of various other industries. While addressing the problems encountered in real-world scenarios, digital innovation is also expected to create social value and contribute to economic development. Innovation is not just today; it’s about illuminating the future.
Since the first Huawei User Group meeting 13 years ago, an advisory board of 12 Huawei customer representatives has worked with more than 440 volunteer customers to actively deliver cutting-edge industry information that formulate suggestions for Huawei operations. Then, in collaboration with Huawei’s project teams, the Board participates in improvement projects to meet the main challenges identified. To date, more than 60 such projects have been implemented to continuously improve the quality of Huawei’s products, services and solutions, and create greater value for our customers.
The Huawei 2021 User Group meeting took place July 13-14, 2021 and is organized around the themes of “Listening | Cooperation | Improvement | Development ”. It is a platform for customers, Huawei experts and partners around the world to exchange and share ideas. please visit: www.huawei.com/minisite/hugm2021/en/
