Our Vision, Mission, and Strategy

Huawei’s vision is to bring digital to every person, home and organization for a fully connected, intelligent world. To this end, we will:

Building a Fully Connected, Intelligent World

Ubiquitous Connectivity
Connectivity is a basic right of all people, and the foundation for human progress and economic growth. Connectivity will become a natural and ubiquitous resource, through networks that proactively sense our needs and the changing environment. These networks will offer intelligent, seamless, and secure connections to people and things whenever and wherever they want. With the advent of 5G, we begin a new chapter in the story of connectivity.

Pervasive Intelligence
The Fourth Industrial Revolution, powered by AI, is already under way. As a general-purpose technology, AI will be used in every part of our society. It will be embedded into all industries, products, and solutions, changing how businesses operate and create value. AI will also make our networks more resilient, providing security for missioncritical services and data.

Personalized Experience
Using AI, cloud, and big data technologies, businesses will better understand their customers’ needs, and with agile innovation, they will provide a more personalized experience for every customer. Coordination and collaboration across industries will drive innovation at scale.
A personalized experience will be available to all, respecting the unique character of everyone, and enabling the full potential of every person to be realized.

Digital Platform
A new digital wave is sweeping the globe. Digital and AI technologies are helping all governments and businesses become more agile, efficient, and vibrant. Open, secure, flexible, and easy-to-use digital platforms will facilitate innovation and transformation in all industries. They will be the bedrock and the fertile soil from which our digital society will flourish.

Ubiquitous Connectivity

We are moving towards an intelligent world, where all things will be able to sense and connect. Connectivity is the prerequisite for – and foundation of – this world. It is also a basic right of all people.

Huawei is committed to connecting all people, homes, and organizations that are still offline. We are also driving the adoption of broadband and ultra-fast broadband. In addition, we are infusing AI into connectivity so that our networks can adapt to the changing needs of people and connected things. Going forward, intelligent networks will need to adjust bandwidth and latency in real time, so that they can deliver the consistent, user-centric experience that network customers expect.

In the three main areas (individual users, homes, and organizations), Huawei enables ubiquitous connectivity, whether it’s person-to-person, person-to-thing, or thing- to-thing. With our focus on user experience, we bring AI into networks so that they can proactively sense our needs and the changing environment. These networks will offer intelligent, seamless, and secure connections to people, homes, and organizations, whenever and wherever they want.

To make this a reality, Huawei is constantly innovating. We have developed a range of cutting-edge connectivity technologies that work in any scenario and over any media– Wi-Fi, copper, fiber, cable, microwave, Small Cell, 3G, 4G, 5G, and IoT. We are also leveraging big data and AI to develop intelligent connectivity solutions for individual users, homes, and organizations. Examples include the Huawei SmartWi-Fi, HiLink, OceanConnect, and SoftCOM AI solutions.

Pervasive Intelligence

AI is a new general-purpose technology that will trigger transformation in all industries, and in some cases, it may even disrupt industries. AI will change how every organization works, leading to higher efficiency and lower costs. For households and individual users, AI will bring completely new experiences.

These changes have only just begun.

AI will be built into every aspect of our lives. It will find its way into all industries, products, solutions, business operations, and processes, changing how organizations work and create value. AI will be an engine for value creation in a digital world. Data, computing power, and algorithms are the three fundamental resources that make AI work. Huawei’s GIV forecasts that by 2025, 90% of smart devices will have smart assistant functionality, 14% of families will own smart robots, and 86% of enterprises will be using AI.

However, there are still many obstacles to the adoption of AI. For example, existing algorithms are still inefficient, many users lack access to sufficient computing power, and there are not many practical applications. In addition, synergy between AI and other technologies is currently low, as is coordination within the industry ecosystem. As a result, AI is still expensive and scarce.

To address these obstacles, Huawei has launched a full- stack AI portfolio that serves all scenarios. From ideation to strategy, from chips to applications, and from consumer (HiAI) to enterprise (HUAWEI CLOUD EI), as well as Huawei’s autonomous driving network solution for telecom carriers (SoftCOM AI). In terms of technology, business, and ecosystem, Huawei is taking action to turn pervasive intelligence into reality.

Personalized Experience

The physical and digital worlds are converging increasingly quickly. Mass production is giving way to mass customization, leading to greater business innovation, collaboration across ecosystems, and richer user experiences.

The smart devices of the future will be able to stay online at all times, and interact with users and the environment in a more natural way. These devices will understand us better and know what we want. In addition, with the support of AI across cloud, networks, and chips, devices will no longer go into standby, but be awake at all times: not plug & play, but plug & think.

Huawei’s GIV forecasts that there will be 40 billion personal smart devices in the world by 2025. 20% of people will own more than 10 smart devices. 86% of companies will be using AI, and data utilization will skyrocket to around 80%. There will be 440 million augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) users. All of these developments will mean innovations for people, homes, and organizations.

The hardware and software of smart devices will be better structured and more modular. This will allow us to easily add new capabilities to smart devices, like connectivity, sight, hearing, touch, sensing, language, perception, and even cognition. We can stack new features in a modular fashion – putting them together like building blocks. These smart devices will enable users to extend their senses beyond the physical world and into the digital. Businesses will use new technologies like AI and cloud to understand their customers’ needs and power agile innovation in services, allowing them to deliver more personalized experiences. Coordination and collaboration across industries will drive innovation at scale.

Digital Platform

Data is coming from more sources and in more forms,from personal data and consumption data to video data and industrial data. These fragments of data can be integrated only with the help of digital platforms.

During digital transformation, enterprises face the challenge of how to deploy and integrate new technologies, including cloud, AI, and big data. To keep pace with changes, enterprises also need to adapt their strategies, organizational structures, processes, R&D, manufacturing, marketing, and services. This is where powerful digital platforms come into play. These platforms will enable enterprises to harness new technologies and agilely innovate in order to deal with changes and new competitive forces.

Digital platforms are essential to successful digital transformation.

Buildings, factories, production lines, and utilities are the physical platforms necessary for organizations to operate. Using information technology, companies can manage their physical platforms more efficiently than ever before, and streamline their business operations. This process is what we call digitization.

More advanced IT technologies, such as the Internet, cloud computing, and AI, are changing how companies work and leading to the creation of new business models. This process is digital transformation. The IT systems and operational methods that accompany them form a company’s digital platform.

Together with our ecosystem partners, Huawei provides leading, innovative digital platform solutions as well as relevant technologies and products. Our offerings are ideal for helping customers build open, secure, flexible, and easy-to-use digital platforms. By empowering data integration, business coordination, and agile innovation, these digital platforms will pave the way for successful digital transformation.
