October 22md witness the HarmonyOS Connect Partner Summit with various announcements of new releases, and devices under HarmonyOS Connect ecology. Since the announcement of this brand, it gave new achievements and shown significant growth.
At present, over 1,800 hardware ecosystem partners have joined this Huawei platform. Furthermore, the product categories have achieved 4,000 counts in terms of the official certificates. On top of this, in 2021 HarmonyOS Connect has more than 60 million new devices.
The new products are applicable in various industries that include smart home, sports and health, smart travel, audio-visual entertainment, education, office, and others. The company’s industry partners have made equal contributions to this new device lineup.
HarmonyOS Connect: Fully Upgraded Platform
Speaking of a basic level, the HarmonyOS Connect certified devices are showing notably improved performance. The previous methods have been revised and introduced two new methods called- “rely on one” and “scan and sweep”. In this line, the Widgets have been elevated with a new service center and multi-device entrance.
For instance, smart door locks can achieve real-time visual interaction with the Widgets. In this manner, not only the fingerprint recognization has been improved but various services including one-click interconnection also get new functionalities.
Furthermore, the certified products have the advantages of the HarmonyOS SuperDevice feature. It allows other devices to join and delivers a multidevice smart experience in various scenarios.
If we take health or exercise as an example, we can have better results through multi-device connections including a smartphone, a smart accessory, and a smart scale. Besides, the vertical applications including basic, enhanced, and application service packs have provided new applications.
At present, the hardware packages synchronize with 11 mainstream chips integrated with 11 modules and, 20 other modules. Furthmore, technology certification capability has been upgraded, from a monthly certification of 100 SPU to 400 SPU to help the manufactures quickly link the devices with HarmonyOS Connect Platform.
Huawei’s conjoined energy-saving catalyst project won Sustainable Development Impact Award
On October 22nd, Huawei’s conjoined smart energy-saving catalyst project won Sustainable Development Impact Award. The 2021 Global Telecommunications Management Forum (TM Forum) acknowledged the project. Network firms including China Telecom, China Unicom, and China Mobile equally participate in this project.
This energy-saving catalyst project was collaboratively built by Huawei has been appreciated by global communication service providers (CSP) and their technology partners. Besides, the TM Forum focuses on developing and verifying innovative concepts.
On the other hand, this project promotes the telecommunications industry and contributes to the digital transformation of the industry. Thus, the jury team congratulates the winning team for their great accomplishments for the Smart IDC smart energy-saving catalyst project.
Smart IDC Smart Energy-Saving Catalyst Project:
The project implements innovative technologies in the fields of AI, big data, and digital twins. Furthermore, it showcases the feasible schemes for efficient use of water resources and conducted trials with multiple operators. This project has also undergone the comparison phases and cross it with flying colors.
Besides, the global dual carbon has made “Green” a necessary standard. Thereby, the project team has conducted an in-depth discussion on AI and related technology to ensure a comprehensive user experience.
At the same time, the company has successfully achieved the integration of cloud, edge, and end with the mainstream data centers. Additionally, the different cooling approaches include air cooling, water cooling, and indirect evaporative cooling has been adopted in the data centers.
Smart IDC Data Centers:
After implementing the technology from the Smart IDC Smart Energy-Saving Catalyst project, Huawei data centers have 10-15% less electricity consumption. The operating load rate for the 1000 cabinet center with 5000W power is 40%. Meanwhile, the electricity costs have been reduced by 1.7 million Yuan.
Furthermore, the TM Forum catalyst project accelerates the promotion and development of the telecommunications industry. Huawei determines to further take this work to enhance the capabilities of global as well as native network operators.
Huawei BladeAAU Pro positioning in STC network web of Saudi Arabia
Huawei has completed the first batch deployment of BladeAAU Pro solutions for Saudi Telecom Company (STC) in Saudi Arabia. Now, STC’s network web will support Sub3G full-band passive antennas integrated into a single pole.
This implementation of BladeAAU Pro solutions has increased the network performance in all aspects. In addition, the STC’s minimalist network strategy gains strong backup support to deliver an enhanced user experience in the country.
Huawei BladeAAU Pro: Large-scale Deployment, Saudi Arabia
In 2020, the number of 5G users has shown explosive growth in the Saudi STC network web. Thereby the network requirements satisfy the demands of huge numbers of 5G users becomes higher. Thus, the company needs an immediate and large-scale deployment of Massive MIMO.
This is how Huawei BladeAAU Pro solutions take charge in Saudi Arabia providing a full-band passive antenna network. It helps the current networks in achieving a single-pole Sub3G Massive MIMO support.
The BladeAAU Pro has innovative antenna solutions that use a modular design to combine 5G active modules and passive antennas. Furthmore, the passive module combines different band antennas in one unit. Additionally, a single tool is enough to maintain its flexible design.
The solutions have benefits including minimal site deployment, lower pre-construction charges, and increased performance. Moreover, the uniformed network quality has been realized in every corner of the web.
Besides, both parties plan to continue to work with each other. Under win-win and open cooperation both determine to verify the latest 5G technology and implement them on large scale for commercial applications.
However, this is not the only Massive MIMO Solution of the company but it has its own benefits. This solution also won the Best Mobile Network Infrastructure awards at the 2021 Global Mobile event in July this year.
