Huawei Debuts Versatile Cloud Solutions

Chen Xuejun

Director of Huawei Carrier IT Marketing & Solution Sales

This week, Huawei held the Carrier  Cloud Transformation Summit as a highlight of its Win-Win Innovation Week.  During the summit keynote entitled Huawei Cloud: Enabling New Growth for  Carriers, Director of Huawei Carrier IT Marketing & Solution Sales Chen Xuejun announced Huawei’s first suite of global scenario-based cloud solutions for  carriers. These solutions focus on monetizing networks, innovating services,  and optimizing operations to help carriers embrace cloud transformation and  growth acceleration. 

With advances in 5G, cloud computing, big data, and edge computing,  cloud transformation has become the future of telecom carriers. According to  Gartner, carriers around the world will increase their IT infrastructure  investment in cloud transformation at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR)  of 27% in the next five years. Huawei has distilled its over three decades of  telecom experience and cloud expertise into the following key factors for carrier  cloud transformation: first, the selection of a transformation strategy by factoring  in a carrier’s own advantages; second, the planning of a transformation path  considering data security, system stability, and service agility; and third, the  selection of a trusted, experienced, and competent partner for win-win  collaboration. 

Huawei builds these three factors into its carrier cloud solutions. First, Network + Cloud expands the scope of network monetization.  Huawei’s network insights and cloud-network collaboration solutions enable  carriers to expand their service and market boundaries for maximum network value. For enterprise customers in China, Huawei Cloud provides a Cloud +  Network + Security deployment solution to expand the coverage of traditional  solutions with integrated ICT for a multiplier boost in value. 

Second, Service + Cloud accelerates service innovation. Huawei  Cloud leverages Huawei’s experience in the telecom industry and its advanced  cloud platform capabilities to make carrier development agile and bring  innovation faster to market. In Africa, a customer deployed the mobile wallet  platform on Huawei Cloud, shortening service rollout from months to weeks.  The Huawei Cloud ecosystem further shortened this rollout from months to just  one week. 

Third, Operation + Cloud drives operations efficiency. Huawei Cloud  pre-optimized cloud solution powers basic telecom services, expands the user  scale, and catalyzes the continuous growth of main services. An Asian carrier  counted that only 10% of its 5G subscribers are using 5G service packages and  5G network coverage. Huawei uses the distributed data lake solution for 

collaborative analysis of business support system (BSS) data, improving  operations efficiency and boosting the marketing conversion for 5G  provisioning by 180%. 

Chen Xuejun concluded his keynote with Huawei Cloud’s commitment. “The key to carrier cloud transformation lies in smarter use of the cloud for  networks, services, and operations. Huawei Cloud will work with global carriers  to transform and open up new growth space.”
