BY 2022, it has been forecasted that 50 percent of global gross domestic product (GDP) will be digitized as the global digital economy developed rapidly, the demand for digital products and services has already exceeded expectations.
These “severe bottlenecks” according to Guo Ping, Huawei's rotating chairman, the industry “must explore new theories and architectures to reshape the technological paradigm to achieve digital sustainability.” The chairman's statement was in reference to Shannon's theorem which “defines the maximum amount of information, or data capacity, which could be sent over any channel or medium”; and the von Neumann architecture which “consists of a single, shared memory for programs and data, a single bus for memory access, an arithmetic unit, and a program control unit.”
At the recent Mobile World Mobile Congress or MWC2022 in Barcelona, Spain, Huawei released their GUIDE business blueprint and innovative solutions focusing on digitalization and carbon neutrality for the future of information and communications technology (ICT).
The global leading provider of ICT infrastructure and smart devices vowed at the online media roundtable on Monday to empower the green and sustainable future of the digital economy in the Asia-Pacific region.
Huawei has been upholding the concept of “make technology and nature live together,” and has continued to invest in reducing carbon emissions, increasing the use of renewable energy, promoting circular economy, and guarding nature with technology. Huawei is committed to integrating digital technology and power electronics to promote the energy revolution, accelerate the digitization of energy, enable industrial upgrading in thousands of industries, and become an enabler of carbon emission reduction.
By creating synergies between IT and CT, cloud and edge, and cloud and networks, Huawei hopes to help operators go digital and intelligent and achieve new revenue growth. In Asia-Pacific, for example, Huawei's OneStorage solution has helped one operator cut TCO by 30 percent.
“Connectivity density and computing power determine the strength of the digital economy, but it should also maintain long-term vitality. So, we need to consider a new dimension, carbon reduction,” Guo said with regard to carbon neutrality.
Huawei currently adheres to a “More Bits, Less Watts” strategy in this area. In addition to improving its fundamental digital capabilities, Huawei has committed to making its products 2.7 times more energy efficient by making breakthroughs in areas like theories, materials and algorithms. Huawei's third-generation Massive MIMO products fully utilize the multi-antenna technology to improve energy efficiency by 30 percent compared with peer products.
“As part of its efforts to create a greener and more sustainable digital world, Huawei would increase investment in sustainable green solutions, leveraging clean power generation, electric transportation, and smart energy storage to support the Asia-Pacific region's goals of cutting carbon emissions, promoting renewable energy and contributing to a circular economy,” said Jay Chen, vice president of Huawei Asia-Pacific. “Through advances like these, the ICT industry is able to help other industries reduce their own carbon footprints.”
According to AlphaBeta, a Singapore-based strategic economic consultancy that works with governments, businesses, investors, and other institutions, their report shows that a technology-driven economy could assist in mitigating the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and recovering the country's economic losses.
The report states that if fully leveraged by 2030, the country could foster a digital economy that could raise P5 trillion or $101 million in economic value by 2030. This is equivalent to 27 percent of the country's GDP in 2020 alone.
“In Asia-Pacific, for Asia-Pacific is our commitment,” said Chen. “At Huawei, we are working closely with carriers and partners from around the world to explore solutions that help make life better, businesses smarter and society more inclusive. We'd also love to share how our ICT technology is helping make the world a greener, more sustainable place. Together, we could light up the future.”
To support the digital ecosystem in Asia-Pacific, Huawei in 2021 has announced that it would invest $50 million to develop 500,000 digital talents for Asia-Pacific in the next 5 years and invest $100 million over three years to cultivate the startup ecosystem in the region, including in the Philippines.
