On September 26, Huawei launched its Mate 30 lineup in China and on the same day the company also started the first-ever sales, which has done quite a good business as a debut.
Huawei said sales of Huawei Mate 30 series smartphones topped 500 million yuan ($70.1 million) in one minute on the Vmall.com, Huawei’s retail platform, reported SCMP.
To be mentioned, the company has initially started the sales on 4G version and the 5G version will be coming in November.
Also, the prices of this new lineup up to 40% lower compared to the European versions, announced on September 19.
The price of Huawei Mate 30 starts at 3999 yuan (513 euro) in China compared to 799 euro (6,262 yuan). On the other hand, while the Mate 30 Pro starts 5799 yuan (744 euro) compared to 1049 euro (8,221 yuan) in Europe.
Industry analysts believe that this difference in price will help Huawei to boost its sales and to reach the mark of 20 million units before the end of this year for this particular flagship. Meanwhile, the Chinese tech giant still needs some time to release it in the overseas markets.
‘Tesla cars are killing peoples’ said Huawei smart car solution head, demoted by Huawei
The company explained that the unethical remark made by Su Qing is the reason for this strict action. A person has to be responsible for his deeds, that’s why the company is taking further actions.
Huawei smart car BU president Su Qing took part in the World Artificial Intelligence Conference. During his interaction with the media about autonomous driving technology and safety measurements, Qing made a controversial comment about the Tesla vehicles and their ADS technology.
In his answer, Su Qing used an unpleasant word to describe the issues with Tesla vehicles. He said machines from the big names such as Tesla cars are causing accidents in human society and “killing peoples” even in the case of autopiloting.
He added that Huawei is working hard to bring solid technologies to decrease the smart car issues. The company (indicating Huawei) wants to overcome the causes as low as possible that are responsible for increasing the accident rate.
Reacting to this whole story, the Huawei spokesperson explained that the statement (Tesla is killing peoples) was his (Su Qing) personal view, but the company believes that it harms the reputation of both firms.
The company decided to demote Su Qing from the President and Chief Architect to the strategic reserve team. He will receive the training in the distribution department and will reflect on his statement.
Furthermore, Huawei spokesperson stated that the company respects the struggles and participation of each enterprise and appreciates their work in the automotive industry. Moreover, the company believes that only the joint effort can bring a breakthrough in autonomous driving technology.
Huawei and China Mobile deploys first Cloud Access Private Line
Back in 2019, the State Council of China published an official development plan for Guangdong Hong Kong Macao Greater Bay Area to promote rapid economic development.
According to the information, there were 53,000 national high-tech enterprises in Guangdong province by the end of 2020. But, the one consequence of this digital and cloud-based transformation is that these enterprise private lines have higher requirements on latency and packet loss rates.
In the past, China Mobile was continuously providing premium communication services for enterprises and individuals. Additionally, it has always been committed to building premium basic communication networks for the Greater Bay Area.
In 2018, Guangdong Mobile (Guangdong branch of China Mobile) has deployed over 2,000 OTN nodes to build a premium OTN private line network covering 21 prefecture-level cities in the province. However, this network is linked to Hong Kong and Macao operator networks as well as China Mobile’spremium enterprise network.
First OTN P2MP Cloud Access Private Line:
To provide low latency and highly reliable differentiated cloud access experience for SMEs and helping them achieve digital and cloud-based transformation. Guangdong Mobile and Huawei developed and deployed an OTN point-to-point (P2MP) cloud access private line solution on July 25.
The aim of this project is to help SMEs to achieve digital and cloud-based transformation. Additionally, by integrating OLTs and OTNs, this solution comprehensively converges gigabit access and all-optical networks to provide a premium cloud access experience.
- Fast network coverage
- Quality cloud access
- E2E smart management and control
Fast network coverage:
The OTN P2MP private line uses existing ODNs that have covered business buildings to implement fast coverage and provisioning of enterprise private lines.
Quality cloud access:
OLTs innovatively use upstream OTN boards to transmit services over exclusive OTN channels. This prevents service congestion and ensures zero packet loss. In addition, innovative dual-channel isolation technology for service and management signals ensures that private lines achieve deterministic E2E low latency and provides a premium cloud access experience for SMEs.
E2E smart management and control:
This solution uses iMaster NCE, Huawei’s management, and control engine, to implement cross-domain management control of OTNs and OLTs, fast E2E service provisioning, SLA visualization, and self-service bandwidth adjustment. It also offers a self-service and e-commerce experience.
For more information:
In the tenure of the 14th Five-Year Plan, the digital economy in the Greater Bay Area will develop rapidly. Moreover, Guangdong Mobile will continue to increase its network quality and use wide-coverage OTAs to provide ubiquitous optical connections for various industries
Over 350,000 developers joined Huawei Ascend AI ecosystem
According to Huawei’s official report, the Huawei Ascend AI ecosystem has achieved rapid growth in the past year. Now, it has an AI ecosystem development team consisted of more than 350,000 developers.
Huawei’s higher authority speech:
Recently, Huawei Ascend Business President, Xu Yingtong in his keynote speech mentioned that Ascend AI ecosystem has developed more than 600 solutions with over 500 partners.
In addition, he said Huawei and Wuhan jointly build the Wuhan Artificial Intelligence Computing Center and strive to create an industrial layout of “1 center + 4 platforms”. The four platform includes:
- Public Computing Power Service
- Scientific Research Innovation and Talent Training
- Industrial Development
- Innovative Application Platform
Wuhan Artificial Intelligence Computing Center
Wuhan Artificial Intelligence Computing Center has delivered artificial intelligence computing power support for more than 20 companies and 4 universities as well as research institutes.
Huawei Ascend AI Ecosystem:
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is no longer just a catchphrase but is slowly becoming a new type of general computing technology. However, Huawei never stops investing in AI research and development.
The technologies such as ground-breaking cooperation among 5G, cloud, edge, and reshaping various industries including financial service, manufacturing, and more usually require collaboration to obtain fruitful results.
On this subject, Huawei has been making a lot of effort in building an AI ecosystem, which includes academia, industries, and relevant communities to AI development. I can advance both technology and those sectors together.
With an open approach, opening up hardware, making software open-source, and pursuing shared success with our partners.
