In his speech, Peng pointed out that the digital economy is becoming a main driver of global economic growth, and that digital technologies are being applied in diverse production scenarios across a wide range of industries. This makes data a new factor of production, and is driving significant leaps in social productivity. Peng said that as digital infrastructure is critical for the success of the digital economy, Huawei is committed to collaboratively developing transmission, computing, and storage power to improve the efficiency of data collection, transmission, computing, storage, and analysis, in order to improve digital productivity and boost the digital economy.
Peng also talked about how Huawei is working to build leading digital infrastructure. First, Huawei is building leading transmission facilities supported by the more advanced 5.5G, F5.5G, and Net5.5G technologies, in order to support IoT services that connect hundreds of billions of things and deliver a 10 Gbps user experience. Second, Huawei is continuing to develop solid computing infrastructure to facilitate breakthroughs in diverse computing fields, such as general-purpose computing and AI computing. Third, Huawei is building reliable storage facilities to ensure more data can be stored, quickly transmitted, and efficiently used. “Moving forward, we will continue innovating to help customers build leading digital infrastructure, accelerating our journey towards the intelligent world,” said Peng.
At the session, other industry experts also shared their experience in this area.
Wang Zhiqin, Vice President of the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), introduced the ICT industry’s top 10 trends in 2023. She said: “The digital economy is entering a phase of quality growth driven by data. The digital governance and security systems have been basically established. High-quality ICT development will propel healthy and prosperous development of the digital economy.”
Sun Zhengyun, Vice President and Secretary-General of the China Energy Research Society, talked about how power grid enterprises can go digital to support China’s carbon peak and carbon neutrality strategy. He pointed out that by integrating digital technologies and traditional power technologies, power grid enterprises can build a middle platform architecture, unlock the value of data, and create intelligent services, which will drive high-quality development of themselves and the economy at large.
Li Fuchang, Director of the Wireless Technology Research Center of China Unicom Research Institute, shared updates on China Unicom’s recent research and exploration into 5.5G. Li shared a range of applications of cutting-edge technologies such as 5.5G integrated communications and sensing, URLLC, and RedCap, and proposed the future development directions of 5.5G.
Feng Dan, Changjiang Distinguished Professor and Dean of the School of Computer Science and Technology at Huazhong University of Science and Technology, talked about the development trends of diskless data center architecture and near-data processing. She said: “Technologies such as high-performance heterogeneous computing, high-speed networking, large-capacity new disk enclosures, and near-data processing are accelerating the evolution of data centers from a CPU-centric coupled architecture to a diskless architecture featuring decoupled storage and compute, and resource pooling and sharing. In the future, large-capacity new disk enclosures will become the new foundation for data storage.”
The first Huawei Global Analyst Summit was held in 2004. Huawei Global Analyst Summit 2023, the 20th consecutive summit, was held from April 19 to 20. Several sessions with different themes were also hosted at this year’s event.
