The Striding Towards the Intelligent World Summit of HUAWEI CONNECT 2022 ended successfully on September 2nd. 22. David Wang, executive director of Huawei’s board of directors and chairman of the ICT Infrastructure Managing Board, delivered a keynote address entitled Embracing the 5.5G Era: Striding Towards the Intelligent World at this summit.
In this speech, he pointed out that 5.5G is a key milestone on our path to a smart world and published Huawei’s latest series of white papers on the smart world. Wang also called on the ICT industry to coordinate efforts around eight aspects of this vision. By working together to further define and refine the industry vision and standards for the 5.5G era, the industry will move faster and faster towards the 5.5G era and the smart world.
In the future, individuals, families and industries will have higher requirements for digital infrastructure.
For individuals, immersive services like XR and holographic communication are maturing and the connectivity experience is set to increase from 1 Gbit / s to 10 Gbit / s. Mobile DOU will go from the current 15GB to 100GB. Requirements for latency and ubiquitous connectivity will also increase.
For families, the demand generated by advanced services like 24K 3D VR games and holographic education and meetings are creating an all-fiber, 10Gbit / s era.
For industries, digital transformation has now entered the fast lane. Industrial-grade applications such as smart generation and power grid dispatching are increasing diversified requirements for connections, quality and sensing, while also triggering explosive growth in the demand for computing and storage power.
Wang noted: “We must continue to work hard if we hope to achieve an intelligent world. The 5.5G era is an important milestone on this path, not to be missed. In the 5.5G era, we will need the ubiquitous 10 Gbit / s experience; intelligent and high-quality compute planning; highly autonomous L4 networks; Cloud Native 2.0 services for enterprises and a 10-fold increase in compute, storage and energy efficiency of the infrastructure ” .
He went on to underline Huawei’s belief that it will need the support of customers, ecosystem partners, industry organizations and academic institutions to continue to evolve and strengthen digital infrastructure, thereby accelerating the advent of the 5.5G era and the world. intelligent.
More specifically, he said industry players should come together to:
Promote the allocation of more spectrum to accelerate industry development and continue to explore new 5.5G use cases with greater commercial value;
Define the technical paths and standards for F5.5G;
Quickly reach consensus on the evolution towards Net5.5G;
Define a profile for L4 / L5 autonomous networks and promote unified standards;
Building an open and diverse IT industry for shared success and redefining IT architecture;
Define a storage architecture that meets diversified data processing requirements;
Build a cloud foundation for the smart world and cultivate a stronger cloud services industry ecosystem; and finally
Adopt a unified NCIe system to help industry save energy and reduce emissions with innovative ICT technologies and solutions.
Wang also released Huawei’s latest series of white papers, titled Striding Towards the Intelligent World. Guided by the next steps related to the eight aspects mentioned above, these white papers explore both the opportunities and challenges that will be presented to the major domains of ICT infrastructure by emerging business needs and technological developments. The white papers also outline key trends in these domains and specify the actions the company recommends that the industry take before 2025.
Huawei’s chief strategy architect, Dang Wenshuan, then took the stage to discuss the content of the white papers in more detail. He highlighted two concepts the company would like to promote as we move towards 5.5G and ultimately the smart world:
“ICT for Intelligence” which focuses on constant innovation and evolution in different ICT domains to enhance key capabilities and
“Intelligence for ICT” which focuses on intelligent and architectural innovation within the ICT sector itself that will be needed to address challenges such as increasingly complex O&M, ensure a user experience in diversified service scenarios and green development. Addressing these challenges will help us make the most of existing and future core ICT capabilities and lead us faster into the smart world.
