CeBIT 2015: Huawei unveils four new products
New solutions aimed at vertical industries looking to better manage data and the internet of things
Huawei today unveiled four new ICT solutions, aimed at governments and industry-specific enterprises to help them leverage the internet of things (IoT) and to better manage increasing data loads.
At a press conference held at the CeBIT trade show in Germany, Huawei released a new eLTE Broadband Trunking solution, the Agile Wide Area Network (WAN) solution, the new OceanStor 9000 device, and its next-generation Anti-DDoS solution.
Huawei said that, while these solutions address different use cases, each was developed to help with the impact of rapid ICT development, in particular with changing business models within vertical industries such as power, media and finance. The solutions would also help with the development of smart cities and smart grids, the vendor added.
"The four major innovative ICT technologies, which include mobile broadband, software-defined networking (SDN), cloud computing and big data, are reshaping all traditional industries," said Ryan Ding, executive director and president of products and solutions, Huawei.
"ICT infrastructure has transformed from being an enterprise's support system to a part of the value-adding production system. It has become a powerful engine that facilitates business transformations for enterprises across different industries. With our innovative approach and focus on ICT infrastructure, Huawei is openly collaborating with partners and customers to promote business transformation and the development of a better connected world."
To address the challenges associated with these transformations, then, Huawei first rolled out its eLTE Broadband Trunking solution, which it said would enable interconnectivity among industries and in smart cities. Based on 4G technology, it supports voice trunking, data and video in one network, which enables dispatching visualisation, Huawei said.
The solution supports more frequency bands, including 3.5 GHz, and supports connections to smart video systems, telepresence, IP call centres and third-party applications. Huawei said that the solution was ideal for emergency services, and would help to improve the efficiency of inter-department collaboration and emergency response times.
