ICT innovation is transforming virtually every aspect of life and work to create thriving and prosperous societies. Huawei’s Global Connectivity Index 2015 found that by increasing investment in ICT by 20%, a country could increase its GDP by 1%, and recommends policy makers look to datacentres, cloud computing, big data, broadband and the Internet of Things (IoT) as key investment areas.

Bringing together industry executives from leading operators, enterprises, international organisations, industry associations and research firms, the two Huawei forums will encourage attendees to exchange views on innovation, best practices and models for sustainable development.

Ultra-Broadband Summit 2015

The Ultra-Broadband Summit 2015, taking place at Sands Expo & Convention Centre, will address the opportunities and challenges for ultra-broadband development, bandwidth operations, fixed mobile convergence, industry cooperation and innovation.

Traditional broadband is changing due to the high data demands placed on networks from next-generation Internet applications, such as video streaming, 4K TV, online education, virtual workspaces and multi-screen interaction. Ultra-broadband is now emerging to handle these new Internet applications and form the foundation of future social and economic development, which has a strong relations with the Connect 2020.

“Connect 2020 was widely supported by ITU member states. A total of 46 countries expressed their direct support to Connect 2020 and adopt the goals into their ICT policy statements and we expect more countries to follow suit,” said Mr Zhao Houlin, Secretary-General, International Telecommunication Union (ITU). “In achieving the goals, broadband coverage remains the fundamental infrastructure where we expect 55% of households to have Internet access by the year 2020. At the same time, we are also mindful of the challenges that exist in developing countries contributing to the digital divide. Broadband affordability and quality still remain as key challenges. In this aspect, effective partnerships between stakeholders such as governments, operators and technology partners are crucial to move the broadband agenda forward.”

“Ultra-broadband has the power to connect consumers and enterprises in new ways, promoting economic and social development. It will become an enabler of infinite innovation, and a society embracing new applications, business models and industries,” said Daniel Tang, CTO of Huawei Fixed Network Business Unit. “Ultra-broadband provides a higher speed, ranging from 25 Mbit/s to GigaBand. It also provides broader coverage (> 99%) that not only connects people and homes, but also enables the IoT. Huawei advocates investment-friendly regulations from telecom regulators to achieve a balance between investment and competition. In addition, Huawei calls for the implementation of Fibre-from-the-Home projects through Easy Access to Non Telecom Infrastructure. These joint efforts will address issues faced in last-mile fibre roll out.”

Huawei Cloud Conference Singapore 2015

Huawei Cloud Conference Singapore 2015, to be held at the same venue, includes participation from Huawei’s industry-leading partners, Accenture and Intel, to facilitate dialogue on the latest progress of and future trends for the cloud computing industry.

“Cloud can provide significant levels of collaboration, agility, and speed, as well as cost savings for organisations of any size and type.” said Leo Li, Director of Huawei Southern Pacific Data Center Solution. “Only open, converged, and innovative clouds can drive in-depth transformation of traditional enterprises and industries. Huawei is committed to the development of open cloud platforms and has made significant contributions to international open-source communities.”

During the conference, Huawei will officially launch its next generation data center architecture — SD-DC2 (Service Driven Distributed Cloud Data Center), and the key roles of the architecture are Cloud OS – FusionSphere V5.0 and Converged storage – OceanStor V3. FusionSphere V5.0 is an OpenStack-based cloud management system which offers one-stop solution covering virtualization, private cloud, public cloud and hybrid cloud, help you deploy cloud computing agilely and efficiently. OceanStor V3 is Huawei’s converged storage with five convergences: SAN and NAS convergence, low-level, medium-level and high-level convergence, SSD and HDD convergence, backup convergence and heterogeneous convergence.
