Just like any other smartphone manufacturer, Huawei also does business with other tech firms to purchase technologies required to produce its products and recently, the company has revealed that it has a ‘two supplier’ program which decreases any type of disruption in supplies.
“In the context of globalization, I don’t think that the components used in the products of any company are 100% self-produced, so we started a business called “Business Sustainable Management” 10 years ago. Strategy, which means that we have two sources of supply for each component.” told Victor Zhang Huawei Senior Vice President in an interview with Xinhua News Agency.
For example, after the release of Honor 20 Pro flagship, a component supplier from the US suddenly stopped shipping component for this phone and in this condition Honor immediately activated its backup supplier.
Even though the company got component its backup supplier, the immediate drop in smartphone supplier was affected a bit but not significantly.
On November 7, 2018, at 12th Huawei Core Supplier Convention in Shenzhen, China, included 700 attendees from 150 global suppliers and Huawei relevant top management executives attending the convention.
A total of 92 suppliers were awarded at the convention, including 33 US companies, 22 Chinese companies, 11 Japanese companies, 10 Taiwanese companies, and 16 companies from countries and regions including Germany, South Korea, and Hong Kong.
American suppliers to Huawei include Qualcomm, Intel, and Microsoft, among others, while Sony and Fujitsu are among Japanese companies and TSMC, Hon Hai and MediaTek among Taiwanese manufacturers on the list. Meanwhile, suppliers based in the Chinese mainland include BOE, Shenzhen Tianma, and Lixun Precision, and others.
According to a previous report, In 2018, Huawei spent around $70 billion on buying components from that $11 billion accounted to U.S. firms including Qualcomm, Intel, and Micron Technology Inc.
As after the US added Huawei in the trade blacklisting, the company is stopped from doing business with the US firms, as a result, Huawei’s supply yield to those companies has reduced as well as the purchase.
Huawei launched All-optical Autonomous Driving Network White Paper
At the 7th Global Ultra-Broadband Fixed Forum (UBBF 2021), Huawei launched the first “All-optical Autonomous Driving Network White Paper“. Huawei NCE Optical Network Marketing Director Wang Jinping elaborates this white paper document.
This forum was conducted in Dubai under the theme of “Connect +, New Growth”. At the vent, Director Wang stated driverless driving is not only creating a new experience but bringing a quality connection also.
He further mentions the all-optical network is the cornerstone of the entire communication network to the extent that it has become an industry consent. Speaking about Huawei’s goal, he said the company wants to build an efficient, safe, and green all-optical autonomous driving network, that will satisfy the following standards-
- Contactless operation
- Spontaneous response
- Zero failure
In addition, these high-quality services will lead the entire industry towards joint development. Apart from the director Wang, the research director from a well-known consulting firm- Omdia also shared his thoughts about the all-optical network.
Meanwhile, the Huawei director emphasizes that the company’s autonomous driving strategy is a scenario-based solution in the industry. Furthermore, enhancing the network element and network layer is bringing more intelligence to the single-domain autonomy.
Let’s discuss the various aspects of the Autonomous Driving Network White Paper of Huawei-
Huawei Autonomous Driving Network Doc: White Paper Release
There are three aspects of this network solution that can improve the capabilities of the current all-optical autonomous driving network. You can scroll down to check all three points-
According to Huawei NCE Director, dumb resources for the optical fibers and cables are major issues in the current all-optical network industry. Thereby the all-optical autonomous driving network solution introduces pre-connection and optical iris technology innovation in the network element layer.
This arrangement combines the image recognition and big data analysis and diagnosis capabilities of the iMaster NCE intelligent management and control system. Thus, the network layer is able to improve its capacities in the following aspects-
- ODN Topology Restoration
- Accurate Fault Detection
- Accurate Resource Visual Management
- Predict Slow-Changing Faults
- Achieve Business Risk Investigation
End-to-End Home Broadband Experience:
The E2E home broadband experience guarantees a high-quality digital life experience and simultaneously solves WiFi-related problems. It aims to resolve 90% of faults originating from customer complaints that include installation and maintenance problems.
The network has achieved 30% of fault door-to-door and 60% of fault location time. In addition, it delivers a high-quality home broadband service experience after solving the root cause of the problem.
Huawei Digital Energy Ecology Conference published the postponement
On 25th October, Huawei officially published the postponement announcement for the Huawei Digital Energy Ecology Conference. The company explains, due to the recent global pandemic, the original plan has been delayed further.
In addition, the reason is to control the present situation and strengthen the safety measurements for the participants. The company officially address the partners and participants to inform them about the delay.

Regards this matter the local media reveals, the current domestic epidemic is bouncing in the company. The company doesn’t want to create any risk in Beijing thereby suspending the event for now.
There is a high possibility that it can be conducted via online platforms, yet we have to wait for the official words. Besides, this Chinese tech recently concluded the Global Digital Power Summit in Dubai.
2021 Global Digital Power Summit:
Huawei recently participated in the Global Digital Power Summit on 16th October in Dubai. Carbon Neutrality was the theme of the event witnessed by many industry leaders of China, Dubai, and various other technical fields.
At the conference, the discussion revolves around the next industrial trends including AI, Cloud, and Big Data. The leaders are committed to developing a low-carbon smart society to bring an ultimate and greener future for everyone.
At present, we are looking forward to the company successfully holding the Digital Energy Conference and confronting new technologies and ideas in the field of digital and ecological energy.
HarmonyOS Connect evolves over 60 million new devices in 2021
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.

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.
