BEIJING, CHINA: Huawei’s President of Marketing and Solution Sales Dept, Peng Song and Director of IT Marketing & Solution Sales, Chen Xuejun highlighted opportunities for operators to adopt cloud transformation at Huawei Global Carrier Cloud Transformation Summit followed by the announcement of Huawei’s first suite of global scenario-based cloud solutions.
Peng Song, spoke about the company’s newest plans for operator cloud transformation. Cloud is becoming a crucial part of industrial digital transformation, and is now considered a key economic factor because of its ability to reshape the economic structure and market landscape of individual industries.
The telecom industry has already entered a critical stage of its own cloud transformation, resulting in many new opportunities and challenges. 15% of operators are expected to develop and fully implement a comprehensive cloud strategy by the end of 2023. To support this expansion and take advantage of the new markets these technologies are creating, operators must prioritize the construction of more efficient and agile ICT infrastructure.
Peng said, to succeed in cloud transformation and provide quality services to customers, it is important for operators to establish strategic partnerships with those who deeply understand the telecom industry and know how to leverage the strengths of telecom. By the end of 2021, Huawei had worked extensively with more than 120 operators globally on cloud services.
Chen Xuejun announced Huawei’s first suite of global scenario-based cloud solutions. These solutions focus on monetizing networks, innovating services, and optimizing operations to help carriers embrace cloud transformation and growth acceleration.
With advances in 5G, cloud computing, big data, and edge computing, cloud transformation has become the future of telecom carriers. According to Gartner, carriers around the world will increase their IT infrastructure investment in cloud transformation at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 27% in the next five years.
