  • Huawei Holds Pre-MWC 2018 Digital Transformation Forum

Mobilk - Huawei successfully held the Global Digital Transformation Forum leading up to Mobile World Congress 2018 (MWC 2018). The forum focused on five topics, namely 5G, new economic value, business-to-business (B2B) services, big video, and operation transformation. These discussions centered around accelerating operators digital transformation in the age of All Cloud, gathering more partners to forge a favorable digital ecosystem, and enhancing digital infrastructure. The aim is to help operators achieve new technological breakthroughs in capabilities, connections, business development, user experience, cooperation, and many more other diverse fields.

5G Is Now

The freezing of 3GPP 5G Phase 1 standards set off 5G pre-commercial deployment worldwide. Huawei debuted its innovative 5G end-to-end (E2E) solution in the 5G sub-forum. This release includes wireless networks, bearer networks, core networks, chipsets, and customer premise equipment (CPE). It also features solutions such as uplink and downlink decoupling, 3D-MIMO, and all-cloud architecture. Huawei is persistently dedicated to working closely with industry partners to promote further 5G trials and commercial deployment. The goal is to accelerate the development of the entire industry.

The forum brought together leading industry organizations and institutions, operators, and other industry partners. Participants shared their views on opportunities and challenges facing 5G spectrum development, progresses and roadmaps of 5G standardization, and operators plan for commercially deploying 5G and boosting user experience. Huawei also discussed with industry chain partners about new businesses, services, and applications brought by 5G. The idea is to encourage 5G industry chain development with joint efforts from all players to create a healthy 5G ecosystem. 

Unlocking New Economic Value

Speakers from the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the World Bank, and communications departments of multiple countries all highlighted that emerging markets, as well as developed countries are set to benefit from the opportunities brought by the digital economy. Industry organizations, government authorities, operators, and vendors are now keenly endeavoring to create a new industry environment, seeking fresh cooperation models, and developing innovative business solutions.

As an industry leader and advanced ICT technology provider, Huawei offers Mobile Money to cater to the rural population who have limited or no access to banking facilities. Huaweis RuralStar solution is especially designed to suit the needs of remote villages. In addition, Huawei has also adopted leading-edge wireless technologies to provide cost-effective and feasible home broadband services. These services have substantially contributed to national digital transformation, promoting the growth and prosperity of digital economy.

Cloud and Network Synergy Empowers B2B

Top operators and industry partners engaged in discussions about their strategic positioning, market selection, capability building, and ecosystem cooperation in the B2B field. The discussion covered hot topics such as the agile private line, Internet of Things (IoT), and cloud services. Cloudification is an ongoing process and is already underway, with numbers rising for a great many enterprises. As a comprehensive ICT solution provider, Huawei eagerly pursues cloud-based transformation. More importantly, Huawei also looks forward to working alongside operators and industry partners to offer the best and most agile ICT services to assist in enterprises cloudification.

Video Powers New Growth 

The Big Video sub-forum focused on how video will enable new growth for operators. Participants looked at the trend in the growth of global video industry. Operators also shared their success stories of including video as part of their core services. IHS Markit and Huawei jointly released the Video as a Core Service for Telcos and Mobile Video Opportunities for Operators. These two white papers clearly illustrate how video can potentially benefit operators and summarize operators strategies and methods in pursuing video services.

Operations Transformation towards Digital Business

Although digital transformation under the current circumstances is considered an imperative, this process entails a series of business challenges. Operators must seek to boost user experience and improve operation efficiency in customer service, marketing, network planning, deployment, and operation and maintenance (O&M). 

The Open ROADS Community is a forum dedicated to accelerating digital business transformation. The community and Huawei jointly held this sub-forum targeting operation transformation. This provided a unique opportunity to host in-depth discussions on the preceding issues. Participants shared their success and addressed this topic from the perspectives of agile business, improved experience, and efficient O&M. The purpose of the sub-forum was to ultimately gather the entire industry to create a multi-level ecosystem and accelerate operators digital transformation. This period of transition to digital business is set to generate huge commercial success for operators.

MWC 2018 will be held from February 26 to March 1 in Barcelona, Spain. Huawei will showcase its products and solutions at booth 1J50 in Fira Gran Via Hall 1, booth 3I30 in Hall 3, and the Innovation City zone in Hall 4. For more information, please visit
