On the opening day of HUAWEI CONNECT 2018, Huawei released the Smart Campus Solution and redefined campuses from three perspectives: smart mode, operational mode, campus space, and business value.
Huawei aims to build secure, comfortable, efficient, green, and smart campuses. At this global ICT industry event, Huawei discussed with industry vendors how to grasp future trends, seize opportunities, promote the digital transformation of campuses, and achieve new growth as new technologies are emerging.
Currently, all industries are undergoing digital transformation, which has become an irresistible trend.
Huawei’s Smart Campus Solution enables a smart mode by leveraging cloud computing, big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), and artificial intelligence, which goes beyond digitalisation. It innovates the campus operational mode and shifts it from planned to on-demand, making operating status visualised, manageable, and controllable.
The solution also redefines campus space and creates virtual communities, breaking the restraints of physical campuses.
Additionally, the solution increases business value, aiming to help enterprise customers develop hybrid businesses instead of a single business by unleashing potential through transactions and sharing.
Yu Dong, president of the industry marketing and solution department of Huawei Enterprise BG, said: “A campus plays an important role in digital transformation. By building smart campuses, enterprises can better understand customer requirements and then provide extensive, customised, and efficient services.
“We believe that each industry should establish its own platform; therefore, Huawei is committed to building a platform for platforms. Adhering to our strategy of ‘Platform + Ecosystem’, Huawei builds a Smart Campus Digitalization Platform to help customers in various industries achieve digital transformation and construct future-oriented smart campus.”
Building smart campuses is one of the best routes for enterprise digital transformation and key to solving traditional issues. Enterprises can then break system silos, master and dominate business innovation, improve operational revenue, update business concepts, and change business types. This is Huawei’s core concept on campuses.
Huawei’s Smart Campus Digitalisation Platform has the following four features:
* Leading technologies: A successful platform integrates core ICT capabilities such as video, big data, the IoT, and cloud computing, and gives full play to each capability. Leveraging technical innovations and competitive architectures, Huawei is a unique vendor that provides end-to-end ICT solutions in the industry, laying a technical foundation for the platform.
* Rich practices: Huawei first tested it solution on its own campus. Starting from security protection, Huawei built a safe campus with no patrolling security guards through multi-system linkage and precise command and dispatch, better utilizing security guards. It has also developed innovative services, such as smart attendance check via facial recognition, self-service visitor access, and intelligent meeting rooms, building a smooth campus with zero waiting time. In addition, Huawei integrates and visualizes big data to intuitively display the campus operating status, performs unified command and dispatch on administrative resources, and efficiently handles incidents. In this way, Huawei has also built a visualized campus with zero boundaries.
* Ecosystem partnership: Huawei’s platform remains open. Based on the platform, Huawei and customers jointly conduct top-level design and implement projects. Other partners are also introduced for further development and integration. Huawei will integrate various industry partners, especially powerful partners in core cities, to build a comprehensive ecosystem with partners from industry segments.
* Promising future: Huawei believes that platform-based cooperation is future-oriented. For example, Huawei has conducted joint innovation with Vanke. The two parties have carried out research and made joint efforts in new scenarios and models to explore new areas for smart campus development. In the future, Huawei will work with partners to develop scenario-specific solutions and apply technologies to campuses. They will enhance campus service experience and operational capabilities, unleashing greater economic and social benefits.
Huawei is willing to drive enterprises’ digital transformation with customers based on the platforms. At present, 211 enterprises out of Fortune Global 500 and 48 enterprises out of Fortune Global 100 have chosen Huawei as their digital transformation partner.
HUAWEI CONNECT 2018 – “Activate Intelligence” – is held at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center and Expo Center from 10 to 12 October.
