Ping Song, Head of Marketing and Sales Solutions for Huawei Carrier BG, spoke about the company’s latest plans for the carrier’s cloud transformation today at the Carrier Cloud Transformation Summit during the event.
He explained what makes Huawei excited to support these transformations by helping to increase network value, accelerate service innovation, and improve communications operations to realize the benefits of connectivity.
The cloud has become an important part of industrial digital transformationIt is now considered a major economic factor due to its ability to reshape the economic and market structure of each industry.
The telecom industry has already entered a critical phase of its private cloud transformation, which has brought about many new challenges and opportunities. Huawei expects 15% of telecom companies to develop and fully implement a comprehensive cloud strategy by the end of 2023, resulting in a telecom cloud services market worth hundreds of billions of dollars. To support this expansion and take advantage of the new markets created by these technologies, operators must prioritize building a more efficient and resilient ICT infrastructure.
Mr. Song thinks so Cloud transformation for operators must rely on communication technologies Telecom operators must take advantage of the telecom industry’s unique strengths and cloud transformation to increase the value of their networks and services.
He stresses that operators must focus on three aspects to seize the opportunities that arise:
- first of all, When it comes to network value, carriers need to expand the boundaries of the network with the cloud and improve the value of the network in the business marketplace to ensure more customers benefit from these developments.. Networks are the primary assets of carriers, and carriers can take advantage of this advantage and synergistically promote cloud transformation.
In China, Huawei provides network and cloud capabilities at the edge to enable operators to offer solutions to their enterprise customers to increase their productivity, thereby increasing their routable market by 25%.
- secondly, When it comes to digital innovation, operators need to build cloud platforms to innovate digital services that they can use to launch new services faster.. Collaborative cloud platforms that connect digital communications and services will further accelerate innovation and improve customer acquisition capabilities.
In Europe, Huawei has already helped operators migrate development environments, test environments, and hundreds of services to the Huawei Cloud Platform. This has enabled some operators to reduce the time to market for new services by 75% by utilizing an agile development platform and PaaS capabilities in telecom.
- Third, When it comes to telecom operations, telecom operators must use pre-built cloud solutions specifically designed for the telecom industry to support the sustainable growth of their core business.. The cloud transformation of the telecommunications industry requires cloud platforms with a distributed architecture capable of meeting the security and data management requirements of adaptive telecommunications service architectures. A rational timeline for cloud transformation is also necessary to ensure a robust migration of services to the cloud.
In Asia, Huawei deployed distributed cloud to manage a wide range of carrier services and functions, and used Huawei’s distributed data lake to perform interconnected data analysis for various services, which improved the success rate of 5G package marketing by 180%.
Mr. Song concluded his speech by saying: To succeed in cloud transformation and deliver high-quality services to customers, it is important for telecom companies to establish strategic partnerships with those who deeply understand the telecom industry and know how to leverage its strengths. By the end of 2021, Huawei has been working closely on cloud services with more than 120 carriers globally. Huawei is committed to investing more in ICT and leveraging global local service capabilities to accelerate the cloud transformation of operators and realize the benefits of connectivity.
Huawei Win-Win Innovation Week runs from July 18-21 in Shenzhen, China. Together with global operators, industry professionals and thought leaders, Huawei is looking into topics such as 5.5G, green development, and digital transformation to envision shared success in the digital economy.
