Research & Development

Huawei focuses on three domains – fully-connected networks, intelligent computing, and device innovation – and continues to invest in products, technologies, basic research, engineering capability improvement, technical standards, and industry ecosystems. We aim to support customers in their digital transformation and lay the cornerstone of an intelligent world.

We are committed to translating leading technologies into better and more competitive products and solutions that help our customers succeed.

In the wireless network domain, we:

In the carrier and enterprise network domain, we:

In software, we focus on building a cloud-based, service-oriented, and open software platform for carrier operations to continue improving development, integration, and engineering delivery efficiency, and support extensive service delivery. Our achievements include the following:

In the cloud core network domain, we are committed to improving three core competencies – connection management, audio and video, and service-aware intelligent pipes. We also aspire to provide end-to-end connections and audio/video streams for different types of access networks, and enable applications at the top layer through control of a differentiated experience. In 2017, we:

In network energy, the concepts of digitization, networking, and intelligentization continue to inform our development directions of “using silicon instead of copper” and “using bits to manage watts”. We combine the use of power electronics, digital information, communications, and IoT technologies to continuously offer competitive products and solutions to our customers.

In the IT sector, we are committed to bringing intelligent innovations to cloud DCs. We innovate in the AI, cloud computing, and big data domains together with our customers and partners. We also use innovative chip technologies and architectures to promote enterprise digitization and intelligent transformation.

In cloud computing, we continued to offer a series of solutions to help vertical industries migrate to the cloud. These solutions include the HUAWEI CLOUD FusionSphere Virtualization Solution, HUAWEI CLOUD FusionAccess Desktop Solution, and HUAWEI CLOUD FusionCloud Private Cloud Solution.

In AI and big data, we debuted our Enterprise Intelligence (EI) platform and distributed services based on big data, database, and AI technologies, helping enterprises boost productivity through data innovation.

In cloud storage, we continued to improve our storage as a service (STaaS) solution. The solution delivers a consistent on- and off-premise cloud experience and intelligent data and O&M management, and helps enterprises quickly migrate their storage services to the cloud.

In enterprise storage, we released our OceanStor Dorado V3, an all-flash storage system for companies¡' mission-critical services.

In the server domain, we introduced our Boundless Computing strategy, concentrating our efforts on facilitating industry digitization and intelligent transformation.

In the cloud sector, we bring our strengths in software-hardware synergy into play to build open cloud platforms that customers can trust. We strive to deliver stable, reliable, secure, trusted, and evolvable cloud services for our customers.

In computing, we:

In storage, we:

In the network domain, we:

In terms of migration of enterprise applications to the cloud and cloud application management, we launched 10 PaaS services, the microservice application platform ServiceStage, and the bare-metal container service Cloud Container Engine (CCE).

Huawei and its partners announce the launch of its virtual reality (VR) OpenLab industry cooperation plan. The plan’s objective is to facilitate development of and technological innovation in the cloud VR industry, incubate business scenarios, and build a complete cloud VR industry ecosystem.

In the database domain, we launched five cloud database services – HWSQL, PostgreSQL, SQL Server, DDS (MongoDB), and DRS.

In EI, we:

In security, we started delivering security services featuring secure anti-DDoS protection, database security, host security, web application firewalls (WAFs), vulnerability scanning, and security checking to build a multi-dimensional defense system.

In the consumer business, we are dedicated to bringing innovative technologies in multimedia, AI, chipsets, and charging management to smartphones, PCs, and wearables, aiming to deliver a better experience to consumers.

In the smartphone domain, we unveiled the HUAWEI Mate 10 smartphone series. The new features and functionalities of this series include:

In the PC domain, we launched our MateBook X.

In the wearable domain, the HUAWEI WATCH 2 is an eSIM Android smart watch that supports connections to the 4G networks of China Mobile and China Unicom. This device incorporates a continuous heart rate monitoring algorithm and technology to help users enjoy healthy sleep and exercise.

We have made major advances in forward looking basic research and innovation. Our aim is to contribute to progress in the industry via breakthroughs in technology.

In network theory research, we:

In network technology research, we:

In optical network research, we:

We proactively invested in medium- and long-term research of advanced wireless technology to explore and verify new wireless technologies and theories that will address the communications demands of different scenarios in the future.

We continued to innovate in and optimize the infrastructure architecture, software, and hardware of DCs, and designed the OneBrain architecture that supports heterogeneous computing, including multiple new computing approaches, for DCs, to embrace the intelligent world on the horizon.

We continued to invest in the research of next-generation media codec technologies, actively sought partnerships with industry players in audio and video processing, 3D, video intelligence, and other related domains, and drove progress in formulating the H.266 and AVS3.0 industry standards.

We invested ongoing efforts to make AI flourish through application. Specifically, we:

We work with excellent resources from around the world on innovation to advance ICT technological progress.

The following are some highlights from 2017:
