Artificial intelligence (AI) is more than a technology; governments globally recognise AI’s potential to boost economies. For example, Singapore’s National AI Strategy aims to invest over $1 billion in the next five years to speed up AI development and adoption. Yet, tech companies must support AI to gain traction across industries.

Recognising its role, Huawei is working with its partners to address industry challenges and create greater or new value for customers using AI.

“The development of AI has evolved from small-scale customisation to massive industrial-level application. We want to help all industries make the most of these new developments,” says Maxi Wang, CEO of Huawei International, at the Huawei Singapore Partner Summit on April 12.

He continues: “So, we are leveraging the collective strengths of our business portfolio to build a solid foundation for a digital and intelligent world. Since its launch in 2022, our Singapore AI Centre of Excellence has quickly become a leader in innovation. We also collaborate with partners through our Horizon platform to solve important real-world problems and add great value.”

Industry solutions

To encourage AI adoption, Huawei has crafted over 100 scenario-specific industry solutions for over 10 verticals, says Ivan Low, Huawei International’s chief strategy officer. Those solutions are built on solid IT infrastructure, open cloud platform and AI foundation models and feature intelligent sensing, interactive collaboration and connectivity.

Huawei’s OneMap GPT is one such solution. By integrating geospatial and generative AI technologies with data from public and private sectors, Huawei’s OneMap GPT can support consumers’ lifestyle decisions, such as planning their daily itineraries or even recommending properties suited to their needs.

Digitalisation across the business is key to supporting an organisation’s AI initiatives and ensuring they reap the full benefits. Huawei’s partners can help accelerate their customers’ digitalisation efforts by tapping on Huawei’s new offerings, such as:

  • 10Gbps Cloud Campus and Wi-Fi 7 access points free users and terminals from wired connections and ensure distortion-free applications to improve user experience. Huawei also offers Intelligent O&M (operations and maintenance), which leverages big data analysis and AI to improve the network’s efficiency, quality and reliability.
  • Multilayer Ransomware Protection (MRP) protects data at both network and storage layers. Unlike traditional siloed protection measures, MRP is based on firewall, network and storage collaboration.
  • Huawei Cloud Stack (HCS) offers more than 90 cloud service experiences on private cloud and on-premises. It enables businesses to deploy Huawei cloud capabilities in their own data centres, delivers unified O&M of multiple data centres and allows hardware and software to be pre-integrated and verified before deployment. It also offers continuous synchronisation with innovative cloud services on Huawei Cloud and access to Huawei Cloud’s extensive ecosystem and standard APIs.

A greener future

Low says that Huawei and its partners support the Singapore Green Plan 2030 in terms of clean energy generation and carbon-conscious consumption.

EV-electric (EVe), a subsidiary of the Land Transport Authority, has revealed plans to install Huawei’s fully liquid-cooled ultra-fast chargers for electric vehicles (EVs) in the country. This initiative aims to accelerate EV adoption by tackling charging concerns head-on.

Huawei’s EV chargers boast a blazing charging rate of around 1km per second, enabling full EV charges in minutes. They are set to be powered by solar panels and battery energy storage systems, aiming to reduce their carbon footprint significantly.

“Digitalisation, intelligence and decarbonisation will be the biggest opportunities for Huawei to continue to invest over the next decade. These will be supported by AI computing, large models and the shift to AI-generated content. Clean energy generation and carbon-conscious consumption will also create new solutions to meet the industry’s decarbonisation requirements,” adds Low.

Empowering partners

A partner ecosystem is key in realising smarter industries and a greener Singapore, as digital transformation is multifaceted and no company has all the capabilities. This is why Huawei is committed to growing and bolstering its partner ecosystem.

Lei Ting, senior vice president of Huawei Enterprise Business for Singapore, shares that Huawei will continue to focus on three key strategic market segments for its channel partners: Strategic account market, commercial market and distribution business market. It has also launched its first Authorized Services Center (ASC) to support commercial partners and small and medium-sized enterprise customers.

She adds: “We will double down on partner enablement, optimise partner policies to protect partners’ investment, incentivise partners’ contribution to enhancing joint market development and strengthen their capabilities. Our key objective is to develop our services with our partners to support our customers’ digital transformation goals.”
