Huawei completes big Euro-bash for its ‘3 cloud ecosystem’ plans for Europe
Huawei has just completed showcasing its plan for a big push into Europe at eco-Connect Europe in Paris where the Chinese giant has gathered over 80 partners and more than 1000 attendees to talk about Huawei’s ‘three cloud ecosystems ‘for operators, vertical industries and consumers.
Huawei has also launched its European Developer Enablement Plan, and confirmed its commitment to further investment for European developers. It says the show illustrates its determination to build a cloud ecosystem of openness, collaboration, and shared success.
Huawei president of Western Europe, Vincent Pang, pledged to further invest over 75 million euros to 2020 to establish three labs in the UK, Germany and Italy to support fifty to a hundred thousand developers and the company also announced plans for remote labs in Munich, Frankfurt, and Dublin to give European developers closer access or joint innovation.
The gathering has heard more detail on the three cloud ecosystems; for operators, vertical industries, and consumers, covering topics such as cloud transformation, SDN/NFV, NB-IoT, Smart Home, HPC (High Performance Computing), Agile Networks and the Huawei Developer Zone.
For operators, Huawei is committed to building a content cloud together with 500 partners, which will connect content providers with operators more closely.
For vertical industries, the enterprise cloud ecosystem will be the key to customers’ business development and success.
Europe has historically always been an important market for Huawei, especially since the company is blocked and treated with suspicion in the US.
It has 26 centers of expertise around the world, with the majority located in Europe. Huawei has set up 18 Research and Development (R&D) centers in Europe, covering areas including: mathematics, aesthetics, microwave, chips, and wireless technologies. Last year, it set up its European Research Institute to coordinate and oversee the activities of its wider R&D facilities across Europe.
