If sunshine, air, water, food, electricity are the five essential elements for every one’s life before, after the third technology revolution, Internet becomes another essential element. We all know PC, mobile phone and Pad, because we can enjoy amazing Internet services from these terminals. However, most of us don’t know that there are complex telecom systems behind to support all these Internet services. Just like every house has a faucet, we can drink water because of there are water plants to supply through complex underground water transport system.
Huawei is dedicated to be the global leading telecom solution provider and focus on “PIPE” strategy since beginning. In another word, Huawei will help customers to build telecom infrastructure to satisfy information traffic running through from billions of terminals. Huawei will devote to provide any related solution to speed up the traffic and improve user experience as more and more Internet services needs increasing bandwidth. IOT (Internet of things) is drawing near, in future, every physical item will be connected to Internet, not only human. There will be more than 100 billions things to be connected by telecom infrastructure, so thinking about how potential the market is. And as I have discussed in the moat analysis before, only few vendors have the capability to provide sophisticated solutions to build networks for billions of connections today. With the high demands for the huge bandwidth and extreme low latency from more and more Internet services, such as online games, online transaction, video call, etc, the moat is widening and other vendors are hard to cross.
Huawei mainly provides solutions and products for carriers, enterprises, and consumers. As Huawei put in annual report in 2017: Through open partnerships, we focus on providing future-oriented information pipes to build a Better Connected World and continuously create value for customers and society. Huawei aims to become a strategic partner that assists carriers in future transformation efforts, a leading enterprise ICT infrastructure provider, and a top smart device brand that consumers prefer and trust.
