Huawei Technology says that it is working to have at least two billion people on mobile connections globally by 2015.
In doing this, the Executive Director of the Board and Chief Strategy Marketing Officer, Huawei, Williams Xu, said that the company had analysed the current landscape in emerging markets to formulate its strategic approach from four angles: user+, family+, asset+, and efficiency+.
He said that rapid deployment of home broadband and indoor digitalisation would improve coverage and the user experience.
“By 2025, we will see two billion more people with mobile connections, and another 500 million broadband homes. Our commitment has always been to enable world’s operators to build roads to new growth,” Xu said.
“Huawei continues to drive its social responsibility to help emerging markets grow by at least one GCI point while guaranteeing coverage in times of major world events or natural disasters,” he said.
According to him, existing network assets are leveraged to maximise network value and spectrum efficiency, improve the O&M, and serve every economic level.
“Interconnecting all users promotes the development of economy, society, and humanity,” Xu added.
Huawei also said it was committed to creating value for communities by collaborating with operators to help them maximise network assets, deploy home broadband and indoor digitalisation.
It hinted about plans to drive connectivity to enhance the user experience, while promoting economic and social growth.
According to the company, as the world enters a fully connected era, digital infrastructure is facilitating economic growth and emerging markets are on the cusp of a major transition towards digital economies.
The Global Connectivity Index published by Huawei in 2016 reported that for each GCI score point increase, a country improved its innovation capacity by 2.2 per cent; competitiveness by 2.1 per cent; and productivity by 2.3 per cent.
“Operators around the world are in a unique position to invest in these emerging markets to capitalise on huge Information and Communications Technology industry potential, untapped demographics, and national ICT strategies,” it said in a statement.
It added, “Huawei is committed to helping operators increase efficiency and drive profitable growth by promoting the sustainable development of emerging markets.”
However, Xu said, “We work hand-in-hand with operators to help them identify valued customers, develop valued businesses, and build valued networks.
“We enable operators to combine industry policy with the utilisation of existing network resources, and integrate technological and business innovation.”
He added, “Our goal is to help operators drive new revenue streams and a positive business cycle of service development and network construction.”
