Recently, we’ve seen variations in Huawei’s announcement regarding its self-developed operating system, the OS that expected to replace Android in its device ecosystem but now it seems like the company is trying to hide something away from us on this matter.
And to know the matter, you must have to understand its base, that’s why we’ll start from the beginning and don’t forget to note the points.
March 10, 2019, Yu Chengdong AKA Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group admitted for the first in an interview with German newspaper ‘Welt’ and revealed that the company has prepared its Android alternative.
“We have prepared our own operating system. Should it ever happen that we can no longer use these systems, we would be prepared. That’s our plan B. But of course, we prefer to work with the ecosystems of Google and Microsoft” Told Yu.
Note: He said, the company has prepared OS but he also mentioned that the company will look forward to work with Google and Microsft.
May 15, 2019, the US Commerce Department added Huawei in the ‘Entity List’, which bars the company from buying component and software from the US firms including the stoppage of Android services such as Google Play.
May 20, 2019, the Commerce Department provided Huawei a temporary relief from trade restriction to manage its existing customers, which will end on August 19 and expected to be expanded. This 90 days reprieve allowed Google to keep serving Huawei until this timeframe.
May 21, 2019, Yu in an interview with CNBC told Huawei’s operating system could be ready by the fourth quarter of this year, with a version for its markets outside of China available in either the first or second quarter of 2020.
“Today, Huawei, we are still committed to Microsoft Windows and Google Android. But if we cannot use that, Huawei will prepare the plan B to use our own OS,” said Yu.
Note: He mentioned the ‘expected’ timeline of the release, but why he mentioned it if the company is yet to decided to develop it?
July 4, 2019, Huawei Founder and CEO, Ren Zhengfei, said Huawei’s OS will also be suitable for IoT and Autonomous Driving.
Below is the translated statement of Ren Zhengfei said during an interview with Frech magazine Le Point.
“The operating system will have a processing latency of less than 5 milliseconds and the control is precise, which makes this system perfect to be adapted for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Autonomous Driving. For example, We are building this OS to make it possible to interconnect all devices synchronously, this is how we can project ourselves towards a smart society” said Ren.
Note: Ren didn’t say “Only For IoT” devices.
We haven’t decided whether to develop Hongmeng into a smartphone OS yet,” Liang said. He added, however, this position may change if the US completely bars Huawei from access to Android.
Note: He clearly said that the company ‘currently’ has no plans to develop OS for smartphones.
As you can see, the statement posted above is not from any of normal spokespersons and came from top Huawei officials that sound different from each other in the same matter. As it makes hard to believe who’s the right one.
Above all of these things, it’s time to look at some legal facts which the company may delay but cannot deny.
On May 14, Huawei filed trademark applications for “Hongmeng” at multiple global intellectual property organizations, that are now publically available to see and all of them indicate that the OS will be used for a series of different devices including smartphone, tablets, computers, wearables, IoT, and more.
Moreover, reports from internal sources indicate that Huawei is developing a new OS for its smartphones since 2012 in high secrecy, and a tester revealed that the company is testing new software, though it may not want to accept it publically.
Is this because the company again wants to concentrate on Android rather than its own OS or wants to surprise the consumers with an announcement at the next month’s HDC event or something else?
We are closely following this subject and will continue to keep you informed about the latest development in this story but we would also like to hear your thoughts on this matter, what do you think going on under the hood and is the company really planning to launch the new OS or planning to with stick with Android for a long time?
Autonomous driving lies between L2 and L3 in mobile network field: Huawei Wireless Network Chief
Huawei Wireless SingleOSS Product Line President, Ma Hongbo address the Global MBB forum with his speech. He presented five different viewpoints under his deliverance on “5Go S.M.A.R.T., Ushering Wireless Networks into the Intelligent and Autonomous Era”.
During the keynote deliverance, he emphasizes that network intelligence has been recognizing as the wireless autonomous driving network foundation. The network engines are preparing for the ability to self-learn and self-evolve with the help of enormous network data.
In addition, precise network algorithms and different approach models are also being prepared, escorting the network technology towards independent thinking. However, it’s still lacking a good synchronization between autonomous driving networks in mobile communications.
According to the Huawei president, the autonomous driving network current lies between L2 and L3 technology in the mobile network field. The industry needs joint efforts to bring both networks to the same level.
He further explains Huawei is willing to put more effort in terms of level criteria, evaluation systems, and application collaboration to established an autonomous driving network. the company holds serval projects and continually collaborating with operators and industry partners to create smart autonomous networks.
The industry reports show, industry and operators’ hierarchical recognition for driverless driving is becoming the center approach of operators. Furthermore, a recent white paper survey forecasts a positive image for future autonomous technologies.
According to the report, the analyzers surveyed about 42 independent network operators in the industry. Among them, about 80% are confident in their technologies and approaches for stationing fully autonomous driving networks that will a large-scale deployment within a decade.
To be mention, it was the 12th Global Mobile Broadband Forum, held in Dubai on the 13th of October. Its purpose is to bring the industrial leaders and global partners together to discuss the mobile network and adjacent vertical ecosystems.
Huawei’s Cloud and AI technologies contributing in building smart cities
On 14th October, the 2021 Global Smart City Conference was concluded in Shanghai, China. At the event, Huawei officials informed more cities are joining the smart city project. To date, 50 cities including Fuzhou, Chengdu, Changchun, Nanchang, Shanghai, and Suzhou have been accepted the “urban intelligence”.
The company is constructing an integrated intelligent system with a three-dimensional viewpoint. In addition, the ecology in Huawei smart cities also concerns global collaboration, explicit evaluation, and the constant unfolding of new technologies.
Purpose of Urban Intelligence:
Urban intelligence is based on the concept to delivered quick and precise services. Its purpose is to serve civilians, companies, and management to help them save labor and time. In this manner, these resources can be used where they are most needed.
Explaining in an example, President Kun stated, like a Netcom service can manage an entire city to operate one thing. Furthermore, a single network management system can provide enough help to the government efficiently handle one thing.
The official information shows, the Shenzhen-based firm is planning to perform an improved network administration service as implemented back last year. To be mention, in 2020 the company’s solution involves three working areas described below-
- One-Network Management: It handles online and offline collaboration with the help of its four subdivided sectors- discovery, scheduling, disposal, and analysis
- Auxiliary Operations: The solution provider is responsible for teaching the operation and execution of the system to the government.
- Zero-Trust Security: It ensures that the reliability of the officials. It prologues the concept of “Don’t trust anyone, but trust this system”.
In the last of his deliverance, the Huawei president further proposes three ideas to making smart cities more smarter. It includes- solving cross-sectoral problems, building a unified management network, and providing full support to urban intelligence.
