Mobile Reshapes the World – Ken Hu’s Keynote Speech at the Global MBB Forum 2017
At the Global MBB Forum 2017, Ken Hu, Huawei Deputy Chairman and Rotating CEO, outlined a world where all things are connected, presenting telecom operators with nearly limitless growth potential.
Today, there are 20 million shipping containers in the world, and 300 million LED streetlamps. There will be 1.8 billion water meters by 2025, and every year, 100 million new bicycles roll off the factory floor. "Each of these is a potential new subscriber," said Hu. "But to support a future where all things are connected, telecom operators need to strengthen network performance and management. Future networks need to be application-centric, data-driven – and eventually, intelligent."
