More About Huawei:
From 23rd September the company has been conducting Huawei Full Connect 2021 summit. This conference is incubating new development ideas to promote the development of the digital economy. At the event, the company has launched a bunch of new products and solutions to deepening digitalization in the industry.
Huawei Cloud UCS launched at 2021 Huawei Connect Event
Today, the 2021 Huawei Connect event takes place in China on online platforms. Huawei’s rotating chairman Xu Zhijun initiates the vent with his speech about “Accelerating Digital Development with Continuous Innovation”. At the event, Huawei officially launched the Huawei Cloud UCS (“ubiquitous cloud-native service). It’s the first cloud-native model with seamless cross-cloud and cross-region capabilities.
This cloud-native integrated Huawei product will bring a uniformly controllable system to its applications. Furthermore, it ensures a steady operation flow experience while accelerating the digital transformation in the related field.
At the moment, we don’t have more info about Huawei Cloud UCS but as the event proceeds, the company will surely reveal its specifications.
For now, the Chinese tech firm has over 2.3 million cloud developers working with its 14K consulting, and about 6K technical partners. With its 4,500 cloud market products, the company became an important platform for digitalization. Moving with the report, CEO of Huawei Cloud and President of Consumer Cloud Services Zhang Pingan believes that the company is helping users in achieving digitalization bringing all comfort on fingertips.
Coming back to the event, it’s just kicked off and will be concluding on 31st October. This conference is opening the opportunity for the audience and participants to
- Connect with industry visionaries and business leaders
- Explore business opportunities with partners
- Exchange ideas with top technical experts and developers
- Explore new ICT innovations for industry applications
- Dive deep into leading ICT technologies like cloud, AI, and 5G
Huawei’s full-stack, all-scenario AI portfolio released back in 2018 is also progressing as expected. Its MindSpore framework has become the mainstream AI computing framework in China.
Meanwhile, the Atlas 900 cluster, as well as the cloud services based on it, currently serve more than 300 enterprises, supporting the training of many models which include the Huawei Cloud Pangu large models. Huawei Cloud ModelArts has made AI application development incredibly simple with its full-pipeline, scenario-based services.
Xu also explains how Huawei is using digital technology to support low-carbon development, as part of global efforts to achieve peak CO2 emissions and carbon neutrality. Specifically, Huawei focuses on three key initiatives:
- Investing and innovating in energy-saving technologies to deliver more energy-efficient ICT products for a low-carbon ICT industry.
- Investing in innovations where power electronics and digital technologies converge to promote clean energy and the digitalization of traditional energy.
- Providing digital technology to help all sectors go digital and low-carbon.

Huawei will continue to lead in 5G Massive MIMO: Huawei CMO
On August 31, Huawei held the first wireless media salon and MBBF2021 pre-communication meeting. Gan Bin, the chief marketing officer of Huawei’s wireless product line delivered a keynote speech on the topic ‘Huawei continues to lead and open’s up a new green track for 5G MIMO’.
Gan Bin mentioned that the company continues to lead with breakthrough innovations in ultra-large-scale antenna arrays, opening a new green track for Huawei 5G Massive MIMO. This is achieved by making full use of sky resources and maximizing the green energy conservation and experience coverage.
Not only Huawei, but every other industry is preparing for energy conservation and emission reduction with the goal of making an environment-friendly ecosystem. The International Telecommunication Union and the global operators are promoting a ‘dual carbon’ action plan.
Huawei has been leading the industry since 2014 when the company introduced Massive MIMO into the 4G networks. The Massive MIMO was combined with the large bandwidth for an energy efficiency improvement of more than 20 times compared with the normal LTE 4T4R.
The company claims that it has found a new breakthrough innovation in the field of Massive MIMO. In the current scenario, energy-saving can be achieved by continuous optimization of active parts such as RF and power amplifier.
The Chinese tech giant has found its own way of optimizing the resources to achieve green energy conservation. It includes ultra-large antenna arrays, maximized sky-surface utilization, green energy conservation, and experience coverage.
Other things also play an important role in the entry saving are the utilization of the sky. The MM wave covers on 0.3 windward area, which is smaller than the low frequency skyward windward area of 0.7 square meters. The companies should try to an active smaller windward area in order to save energy.
Maximize green energy saving
When the terminal receives the same power, the base station can be configured with lower power transmission to reduce the energy consumption of the base station. Let’s suppose the MM is configured with 160W power transmission, which can achieve the coverage of 320W. According to analysis, the new green version of MM can reduce energy consumption by more than 50%.
Maximize the coverage experience
The new green version of MM has the ability to increase the downlink coverage by 3db. Due to the enhancement of the base station receiving the performance, the uplink coverage will also increase by 3db. The average experience of the edge users of the new green version of MM can be improved by 30%.
This was an example of the integration of Massive MIMO and the green energy-saving requirements. The company will continue its research on making the 5G services more efficient while conserving the energy to an adequate level. In addition to upgrading the personal experience, finding new capabilities in the industry, and more.
Huawei Hubble invests in a simulation software company
Huawei’s affiliate Shanezen Hubble Technology Investment partnership has recently invested in a software-based company that develops industrial simulation software.
As per the information, Huawei’s Investment Partnership firm, Shenzhen Hubble has increased its registered capital from 50 million to 58.8235 million in the Chongquing Liyituo Software Co. Ltd.
The Chongquing Li Yi Tuo software Ltd. is a software-based firm established in July 2018. This company aims to deliver internationally advanced, independent, and controllable industrial simulation software (CAE software) for machinery, aerospace, and aviation.
In the fields including transportation, electronics, and energy, users provide a full range of services such as overall solutions, customized development, and professional training consulting.
Huawei Hubble’s recent investment in OLED chip driver firm
Huawei Hubble has also recently invested huge capital in Ou Rhende Microelectronics Technology, which is an OLED driver chip maker. The Hubble group manages all the investments of Huawei.
Adversely affected by the US sanctions and the ongoing chip shortage, Huawei seems to be making its own resources by investing in the local tech firms. The investment in the OLED chip driver company was a bit surprising for the semiconductor industry.
Meanwhile, the Chinese tech giant will be facing several challenges and amounts in the field of OLED driver chip industry where the South Korean companies grab 90% of the OLED chip market around the globe.
Huawei Investment & Holding registered capital increases 6.62%
Huawei’s Investment and Holding group has recorded an increase of 6.62% in its registered capital. The total registered capital of the company has reached 38.663 billion yuan from 36.450 billion yuan.
The Huawei Investment & Holding company was established a way back in 2003. This firm is jointly owned by the company’s Labour Union Committee and the founder of Huawei technologies.
