Huawei's All Cloud Ready for Liftoff

By Paula Bernier April 12, 2016

Huawei this week unveiled its All Cloud strategy at the 13th Global Analyst Summit in Shenzhen, China. The strategy – which leverages automation, a distributed software architecture, and pooled hardware resources – builds on the ROADS model Huawei announced at its event last year.

The All Cloud strategy involves equipment, network, services, and operations; enables the migration from existing networks and systems to agile operators; and helps communications service providers more effectively more on opportunities in the cloud services, Internet of Things, and video arenas.

"We will also help migrate networks and operations systems to the cloud and help operators establish advantages in agile operations,” Huawei CEO Eric Xu commented. “In the enterprise business, we will leverage cloud computing, SDN, and big data technologies to facilitate enterprise digitalization towards agile and smart operations. In the consumer business, brand, quality, experience, and ecosystems matter most. Huawei is working hard to develop a high-end brand, deliver premium products, win with quality and services, and establish an ecosystem that focuses on consumer experience."

Huawei earlier this year revealed the trial it launched with Telefonica in March of SDN IP optical network technology was a success and Telefonica de Peru is now moving forward with a commercial implementation of the solution.

Last year Huawei was among the top three vendors in terms of global LTE network infrastructure market share, according to Dell’Oro, which has lauded the vendor for its pioneering efforts in small cell products. Huawei is also the market leader in optical networking and containerized data centers, according to Infonetics Research and its parent company, IHS. A Gartner report released in December ranked Huawei the No. 3 provider of smartphones worldwide. And Huawei last year overtook Panasonic to become the top applicant for international patents with the World International Property Organisation.
