Fang Liangzhou, VP of Huawei Network Energy, said at the ceremony that "Modular UPS was created for data centers. Modular UPS features high energy efficiency, flexible scalability, and simple O&M, which perfectly match the requirements of data centers in the cloud era. In the field of data centers, the industry focuses on improving energy efficiency in addition to flexibly satisfying the needs of rapid service growth. Rising energy costs, intense environmental restrictions, and higher power densities are the driving forces behind UPS products. The other challenge lies in how to provide users with solutions to the flexibility and scalability of data centers. Manufacturers must produce UPS products that are scalable to cater for service growth. Due to increasing demands on modular UPS products and fierce competition, UPS providers must continue to innovate to bring about advanced modular architectures and further enhance product flexibility and reliability. Huawei focuses on modular UPS R&D and invests heavily in this regard. So far, Huawei has deployed four UPS R&D centers around the world with over 300 engineers and claimed over 100 UPS patents.”
Huawei's network energy product line has merged communications with power electronics technology to drive the advancement and innovation in the Network Energy industry. Huawei adopted the most sophisticated topology architecture in UPS to ensure the product efficiency and reliability.
After years of continuous innovation, Huawei's Network Energy has integrated digital information technology, IoT technology, and network communications technology. Huawei's network energy product line provides end-to-end solutions covering the data center, UPS, communications energy, and smart PV plant, and has launched many products well received by the whole industry. Besides, facing rapid IT growth, which is likely to outrun Moore's Law, and the laggard development of data center infrastructure, there must be a convergence of technologies across industries. By leveraging solid technical build-up in the ICT sector, Huawei will continue promoting the development of data center infrastructure.
