Huawei has released its whitepaper, ‘Technology against Pandemic: Insights and Practice on Telecom Networks’ providing deep insights into global networks and explaining the important role telecom networks have played in the fight against the pandemic.
This whitepaper, released on the occasion of "5G+, Better World" online summit, says stable telecom networks have helped people move vital activities online, such as online education, online shopping, and remote working during this the pandemic.
This has been the basis of continued learning and production when school and work were suspended. The paper also explains global operators' best practices for overcoming the pandemic with networks. For example, they introduced 5G, AI, fiber 10G PON, and other advanced technologies that enable more applications to combat the pandemic more efficiently.
Focusing on the current scenario, the whitepaper says the coronavirus outbreak has created many challenges for individuals, families, industries, and public services alike. As a result, governments and regulators across the world have developed a number of policies to facilitate the upgrade of ICT infrastructure.
For example, in China, the government has issued a number of policies to promote the application of "big data + grid", "Internet + medical healthcare", and "artiﬁcial intelligence" to make high-quality medical consultation services easily accessible.
In the online summit, the President of Huawei's Carrier BG Marketing and Solution Sales Dept Peng Song called on the ICT industry to stay together and build a better world.
"2020 marks the beginning of the third decade of the 21st century," said Peng. "This year, global digital transformation will accelerate, meaning both opportunities and challenges for telecom operators and industries. To address these opportunities and challenges, operators must aim for more resilient, automated, and intelligent target networks, and their annual network plans and activities should be geared towards achieving these goals."
He said Huawei is launching its "5G+, Better World" online platform to work with operators and partners worldwide, share valuable experiences, and build better target networks.
Several guests attended the event and delivered keynote speeches. These included Dr Su Yu, Deputy Dean of China Mobile Chengdu Industrial Research Institute, Robert Wigger, Chief Business Officer of Sunrise, Su Xiaoming, Vice President of YITU Technology, Shaun Collins, Chief Executive Officer of CCS Insight, and Bob Cai, Chief Marketing Officer of Huawei's Carrier BG.
