Ain Alalam – Rashad Iskandrni


September 23, 2022: The Striding Towards the Intelligent World Summit at HUAWEI CONNECT 2022 concluded successfully. David Wang, Huawei’s Executive Director of the Board and Chairman of the ICT Infrastructure Managing Board delivered a keynote speech titled Embracing the 5.5G Era: Striding Towards the Intelligent World at this summit.

In this speech, he stressed that 5.5G is a key milestone on our path to an intelligent world and released Huawei’s latest series of white papers on the intelligent world. Wang also called upon the ICT industry to coordinate efforts around eight facets of this vision. By working together to further define and refine the industry vision and standards for the 5.5G era, the industry will move ever faster towards the 5.5G era and the intelligent world.

In the future, individuals, households, and industries will have higher requirements for digital infrastructure.

For individuals, immersive services like XR and holographic communication are maturing, and connectivity experience is set to increase. Requirements for latency and ubiquitous connectivity will also increase.

For households, the demands generated by advanced services like 24K 3D VR games and holographic education and meetings are creating a full-fiber, 10 Gbit/s era.

For industries, digital transformation has now entered the fast lane. Industrial-grade applications such as smart manufacturing and power grid dispatching are raising diversified requirements for connections, quality, and sense, while also triggering explosive growth in demand for computing power and storage.

Wang went on to highlight Huawei’s belief that it will need the support of customers, ecosystem partners, industry organizations, and academic institutions to continue evolving and reinforcing digital infrastructure, thereby accelerating the advent of the 5.5G era and intelligent world.

Wang also released Huawei’s latest series of white papers, which are titled Striding Towards the Intelligent World. Guided by the next steps relating to the eight facets mentioned above, these white papers explore both the opportunities and challenges that will be presented to major ICT infrastructure domains by emerging business needs and technological developments. The white papers also outline key trends in these domains and specify actions that the company recommends the industry should take before 2025.

Huawei’s Chief Strategy Architect Dang Wenshuan then took the stage to discuss the contents of the white papers in more detail. He emphasized two concepts the company would like to promote as we move towards 5.5G and eventually the intelligent world. First being “ICT for Intelligence” which focuses on constant innovation and evolution in different ICT domains to improve key capabilities, and secondly, “Intelligence for ICT” which focuses on the intelligent and architectural innovation within the ICT industry itself that will be needed to address challenges like increasingly complex O&M, ensuring user experience in diversified service scenarios, and green development. Addressing these challenges will help us make the most of existing and coming core ICT capabilities and lead us to the intelligent world faster.
