PARIS, Nov. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei kicked off its annual flagship event HUAWEI CONNECT 2023 in Paris today. Thousands of guests, including industry leaders, technical experts and partners from around the world, gathered to explore how digital and smart technology can help accelerate the EU's green and digital transition.
"Europe is making incredible progress in digital transformation, and you are leading the global transition to a greener future," said Ken Hu, rotating chairman of Huawei, in his opening remarks. "Huawei has been working side by side with our European customers and partners for more than 20 years. We have made great progress connecting people, empowering businesses and building Europe's digital ecosystem. Going forward, we will continue to strengthen our support in Europe's transformation digital, local innovation, sustainability and cybersecurity".
Jim Lu, senior vice president and president of Huawei's European region, gave a keynote speech proposing four pillars to better support Europe's dual transition: connectivity of everything, intelligent cloud, "bits manage watts" and cooperation open. "Huawei is ready and willing to work together with partners to offer better products and solutions to customers. We will continue to do our part to support Europe's green and digital transition," Lu said.
Connecting everything and making all decisions computable
Connecting everything with high-speed networks is key to digital transformation. This is especially true in industrial environments, where high-performance networks support real-time transmission, analysis, and computing of massive amounts of data. Huawei offers resilient, intelligent and lossless networking solutions that support ultra-broadband connections for a wide range of different industrial scenarios.
For example, Huawei worked with partners to help turn Hungary's East-West Gate (EWG) intermodal terminal into the first 5G-powered logistics terminal in Europe. With ultra-high bandwidth, ultra-low latency and high reliability, 5G helps enable fully automated and remotely controlled bridge cranes for smart rail logistics. The terminal is much safer, offers better working conditions and operates 20% more efficiently.
With everything connected, the cloud is the powerhouse behind the algorithms and massive computing needed to help industries become smart. "Huawei Cloud will continue to invest in Europe, creating new value for our customers and partners in the region," Lu said. "Now, with cloud nodes in both Ireland and Turkey, Huawei Cloud is among the fastest-growing major cloud service providers in the world."
Managing watts with bits: helping Europe advance its green initiatives
"Europe is a global leader in the transition to clean and green energy," Lu said. "For years, we have been working to integrate digital and power electronic technologies to boost clean energy production and promote the digitalization of energy systems. To date, Huawei has helped generate 228 billion kilowatt-hours of green electricity in Europe: Reduce carbon emissions by 102 million tonnes while creating tens of thousands of high-value jobs.
In Europe, for Europe: a reliable partner in Europe's green and digital transition
Lu said: "Europe is one of Huawei's most strategically important regions in terms of our global operations. Huawei will continue to focus on customer, create value for customers and partners, strengthen innovative collaboration with European partners, and help cultivate digital talent. and green, and further increase our R&D investment in Europe. We look forward to doing our part to accelerate Europe's green and digital transition." Lu concluded by calling for an open, fair and inclusive environment for innovation that is key to social development.
