Establishing Asia-Pacific as a Pinnacle in Digital and Intelligent Infrastructure and Spearheading Global Industrial Intelligence


Establishing Asia-Pacific as a Pinnacle in Digital and Intelligent Infrastructure and Spearheading Global Industrial Intelligence

Asia Pacific Is a Pioneer in The Intelligent Economy

Over the past 30 years, the Asia-Pacific Miracle has emerged and proven the strength and potential of this great region. This story of success is on the path to repeat itself in a new era. Asia-Pacific is becoming a pioneer in the evolution from digital economy to intelligent economy.

Data suggests that Asia Pacific is seeing unprecedented investment in the industrial digital and intelligent transformation. The region's AI market is expected to quadruple1. Countries in the region (such as Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, and so on) are introducing national AI strategies and action plans for a digital and intelligent future.

Industries in the region are also excited about AI and other digital and intelligent tools, and are at the forefront of the transformation. Stories in Asia Pacific echo global trends as well: The Huawei Intelligent Economy White Paper suggested the intelligent economy could be worth 18.8 trillion US dollars by 2030.

Building Leading Digital and Intelligent Infrastructure and Accelerating Industrial Intelligence

For countries to fully unleash the intelligent productivity, we believe, they must act now and introduce digital and intelligent tools into various industries. This means industrial digital and intelligent transformation is key.

In order to offer various industries a reference model of how a successful intelligent transformation can happen in terms of building their ICT architecture, based on our practices of over 200 solutions in over 20 industries, Huawei has proposed a 6-layer “reference architecture”.

With the four features of “synergies, openness, agility, and trustworthiness”, this architecture also indicates that the intelligent transformation is a huge opportunity that can be shared by all kinds of technology and solutions providers.

And most importantly, we believe that within this architecture, the “Digital and Intelligent Infrastructure”– which refers to network, storage, computing, and cloud – can act as the cornerstone of the whole industrial intelligent process. This is because it determines whether the massive amount of data, one of the key elements driving AI, can be transmitted, stored, invoked and processed efficiently and agilely.

We also firmly believe that the region's rollout of digital and intelligent infrastructure will determine whether it will continue to move up in the global value chain, for another Asia-Pacific Miracle in the intelligent era.

Huawei is Reliable Partner and Experienced Practitioner of Industrial Intelligence

With Asia-Pacific countries striving to build leading digital and intelligent infrastructure, we are proud that numerous customers have put their faith in us because of our three key strengths.

1) The first strength is our full-stack technology and solution capabilities.

For example, in finance, we have full-stack technology and solutions throughout the IT architecture of network layer, storage layer, and cloud computing layer.

Huawei's optical transmission technology delivers ultra-high bandwidth of up to 19.2 terabits per second. This enables real-time transmission and replication of ‘disaster recovery data’ between the main and backup data centres of banks. Such high transmission power also satisfies data-growth requirements for the next 10 years of a bank’s service development.

Huawei's “all-flash active-active” solution combines with our strengths in storage, fibre optic networks, IP networks, and data communication to provide “multi-domain collaboration” capability. This allows the IT systems to recover from a breakdown within 2 minutes, which is the fastest in the industry.

Huawei Cloud GaussDB (DWS) Real-time Data Warehouse can have up to 480 nodes with a single cluster, that can handle data processing requests from over 10,000 analysts online. This high computing performance can support banks to shorten their online transaction response time from seconds to milliseconds.

2) The second strength is our deep understanding of various industries.

Huawei has established eight integrated teams to develop scenario-based intelligent solutions for specific industries like finance, electricity, and transportation.

In aviation, efficiency is essential. Huawei has provided China’s Xi’an airport with a data foundation that includes big data platforms for data storage and computing. We also provided tools like ROMA for airport data accessing and sharing, DataArts for data governance, and ModelArts for AI algorithm training and inference. These have enabled the aggregation and modelling of over 60 types of data across more than 10 entities, including the airport itself, airlines, and air traffic controllers. Validation results suggest that the airport will be able to improve ETA accuracy from less than 50% to 90%.

In electricity, managing line loss is a common challenge. Huawei and Indonesia's national power company, PLN, are developing the Intelligent Distribution Solution (IDS) and a high-performance ECU with “Device-Edge-Pipe-Cloud” architecture. This solution aims to achieve several positive outcomes, including “15-minute real-time line loss analysis”, to reduce the line loss caused by electricity theft and meter reading faults.

In education, teaching and learning experience matters. Thai university SWU has partnered with Huawei to build smart campus networks. The university has seen network speed increase 10-fold since deploying Huawei's Wi-Fi solution which features low latency, high bandwidth, and full coverage. In addition, our core switches have brought about a 20-fold increase in bandwidth. Now, over 30,000 teachers and students enjoy Wi-Fi coverage anytime and anywhere on campus.

3) The third strength lies in our deep collaboration with our partners.

We closely work with ecosystem partners to better create value for customers and grow together. We also enable partners in many ways.

We provide them with differentiated, scenario-based products and solutions, as well as more effective and collaborative IT tools. This allows our partners to quickly build technical capabilities and support customers' business success. Huawei also shares our AI capabilities and tools with industry partners, making it easier for them to develop AI algorithms and applications to address industry-specific challenges.

Furthermore, we have established OpenLabs in many cities worldwide, including Bangkok and Singapore. In these labs, we work with global partners to jointly develop innovative and customized industry solutions.

Establishing Asia-Pacific as A pinnacle of Digital and Intelligent Infrastructure, and Breaking New Ground to Bring About Another Asia-Pacific Miracle in The Intelligent Era.

We have already seen digital and intelligent transformation generate many incredible stories across this great region, and we are proud be part of this amazing journey:

At Macao University of Science and Technology, our full-stack data centre is supporting Macao's first scientific satellite project to work on science’s cutting-edge, such as the Earth's magnetic, Earth's dynamo mechanism and so on.

In Malaysia airport, each long-awaited reunion will come a little faster because of our smart airport solution.

In Pattaya, our smart transportation solutions provide a better experience for all, while smart lighting guides every resident home.

We hope to see many more such stories in the near future, and by establishing Asia-Pacific as a pinnacle of digital and intelligent infrastructure, we are breaking new ground to bring about another Asia-Pacific Miracle in the intelligent era.

To this end, we are fully committed to working with all parties to spearhead global industrial intelligence and build a prosperous and sustainable Asia-Pacific.
