Huawei Leads Digitization through ICT Innovation

leave a comment »

-Global ICT Thought Leaders, Economist and Government Representatives Convened to Build a Better Connected World

SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — Over 500 regional ministerial representatives, internationally renowned economists and global industry thought leaders and professionals attended the Asia ICT Innovation Forum 2016 organised by Singapore Exhibition Services. Huawei, as the strategic partner, outlined its roadmap to accelerate ICT transformation to enable more people in Asia Pacific to reap the benefits of ICT and move towards a Better Connected World. To achieve technological and economic growth, countries must accelerate their digitization process through open collaboration with stakeholders across the ICT ecosystem. Huawei also outlined the need for countries to measure and track their digitization development so as to steer the focus of ICT development roadmaps.

Dr Yaacob Ibrahim , Minister of Communications and Information Singapore, Azhar Hj Ahmad, Permanent Secretary to Ministry of Communications Brunei and Dato’ llango Kamruppannan , High Commissioner-Designate of Malaysia to Singapore visited Huawei booth at CommunicAsia 2016 to share the vision of “Accelerating ICT Transformation, Building a Better Connected World”.
Dr Yaacob Ibrahim , Minister of Communications and Information Singapore, Azhar Hj Ahmad, Permanent Secretary to Ministry of Communications Brunei and Dato’ llango Kamruppannan , High Commissioner-Designate of Malaysia to Singapore visited Huawei booth at CommunicAsia 2016 to share the vision of “Accelerating ICT Transformation, Building a Better Connected World”.

“Today, Building a Better Connected World has become the common aspiration of our entire industry. We are committed to the value propositions of Ubiquitous Broadband, Agile Innovation, and Inspired Experience and fully connecting people to people, people to things, and things to things,” said Zhou Jianjun, President of Carrier Business, Huawei Southern Pacific.

Consumers are increasingly expecting rich and inspiring experiences when interacting with content. For example, virtual reality (VR) has been applied in many areas, including gaming, shopping, tourism, and training. To deliver a perfect virtual reality experience, VR needs to process about 5.2 gigabytes of data every second and have a latency of less than 20 milliseconds. To that end, ubiquitous ultra-broadband networks with zero wait time and inspired experiences are needed, which will drive constant changes and innovation of networks and provide tremendous opportunities for industry development.

Historically, technological transformations have disrupted and driven social progress and industry development. A Better Connected World will be a wellspring of opportunities for industries. These will include the 100-billion-dollar video industry, the one-trillion-dollar market for cloud transformation in enterprise IT, and the Internet of Things (IoT) industry whose user base is expected to grow by a factor of 10. Huawei will work in the areas of enhancing connectivity, improving the user experience, expanding access under all scenarios, and helping vertical industries go digital to drive the ICT industry forward.

“Successful ICT transformation requires joint efforts from governments and all industry players. Huawei adheres to a pipe strategy that focuses on ICT infrastructure and smart devices, and is dedicated to building an ecosystem characterized by openness, collaboration, and shared success, in order to accelerate digital transformation. Huawei remains true to investing for the future especially in research and development to create new and innovative technologies that help our customers achieve continued business successes,” said Zhou Jianjun.

Through the company’s experience in working with governments and businesses around the world to build smarter cities and industries, Huawei continues to push boundaries  to develop solutions that propel digital transformation.

The Asia ICT Innovation Forum is held in conjunction with CommunicAsia2016, the largest ICT trade event in the region, where Huawei showcases latest innovations and solutions together with 50 partners off-site. Together with industry partners, Huawei aims to  deepen cooperation across verticals and strengthen the ICT value chain. At Huawei’s booth, visitors will be able to experience a series of interactive activities that will provide them the opportunity to experience the multitude possibilities of a connected nation. For example, visitors will be able to design a unique fashion piece in virtual reality that may well be how the design process may turn out in the future. Dancing Robot was brought on-site to interact and entertain with visitors.

Singapore American School Foundations Break Fundraising Records

leave a comment »

SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — Singapore American School is the beneficiary of a record year of fundraising through the Singapore-based SAS Foundation Ltd. and the United States-based Singapore American School Foundation. The boards of the two foundations recently voted to grant a total of $3,694,430 SGD to the school for the benefit of its students and faculty in academic year 2016-17. Among this sum was a seven-figure gift for the implementation of the school’s 2020 strategic plan.

The funds will also support:

  • Training for Chinese language teachers in the elementary school to support the implementation of a Chinese language immersion program starting from kindergarten.
  • Enhanced opportunities for personalized and innovative learning across the elementary, middle, and high schools, including funding for inquiry unit development in the elementary school, and for Catalyst student projects and the implementation of Quest and Advanced Topic courses in the high school.
  • A continued emphasis on experiential learning, with gifts further cementing SAS’s maker culture through additional staff support for the three makerspaces in the elementary, middle, and high school divisions, and funding for “guest makers” in the middle school.
  • School-wide social and emotional support for students through funding for the high school’s advisory program and for the further development of the middle school’s homebase program.

The foundations also strongly support the school’s commitment to community, providing money to match student fundraising to meet community needs and for service learning projects and curriculum across the elementary, middle, and high school divisions.

Foundation funding will also support arts and athletic activities, and a large gift from the school’s Parent Teacher Association will support the continuation of the popular academic visitors-in-residence program which brings internationally recognized authors, visual artists, illustrators, musicians, playwrights, and directors, and other professionals to work side by side with faculty and students throughout the year.

Chief Advancement Officer Sarah Morris says, “We are grateful for the support of the SAS community — through their gifts to the two foundations, our students will gain unparalleled learning opportunities next year that we simply could not achieve otherwise. There is an unbelievable amount of pressure on tuition in international schools in Singapore, so philanthropy is going to be what continues to set SAS apart from the rest.”
