Huawei has recently established its 6th ICT Academy at CUET in Bangladesh to enhance ICT-related skills among young learners.
Leading global ICT solution and equipment provider, Huawei, has recently introduced four new inverters at a conference for industry stakeholders, Engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) partners. The conference ‘Huawei Partner Ecological Conference 2023’ has highlighted the efficacy of Digital Power and the attendees have discussed the prospects of renewable energy solutions in Bangladesh, reads a press release. Liang Weixing (Jack), Managing Director, Digital Power, Huawei South Asia, presented the different inverters for the Bangladesh market at the event. He has introduced SUN2000-100-KTL-M2, SUN2000-115-KTL-M2 and SUN2000-50-KTL-M3 model inverter for the Commercial and Industrial (C&I) market. And for the utility sector he put SUN2000-330KTL-H1 inverter in place, it said. Liang Weixing (Jack) said at the event, “Digital power is comparatively a new concept for Bangladesh’s industries. It has huge potential and can be very effective in tackling the energy crisis. Industries will not only be able to reduce costs and ensure operational excellence but also become independent. “With that intention, we have brought outstanding products to Bangladesh today. I believe Bangladesh will greatly benefit from these solutions. Besides, enabling Bangladesh to embrace renewable energy could not be possible without our partners. We are hopeful that we will grow together with the country.” “All the inverters for C&I are equipped with a feature, namely Smart String-Level Disconnector (SSLD) to detect reverse current flow, and short circuits. These inverters have PID (Potential Induced Degradation) recovery feature that can improve a solar PV system output by 5% as well. Besides, only Huawei inverters have TUV certified Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) safety function that resists fire hazards by detecting arc sparks within 200 meters in 0.5 seconds,” added the press release. “Bangladesh pledges to reduce 22% of its carbon emissions by 2030. Huawei has provided solar power solutions in Bangladesh for the last three years. In between, it has provided solutions to a number of government and industry projects. The country’s second-largest solar plant at Mymensingh is using Huawei’s digital power solution,” it added.

As technicians in a distant control room watch on display screens, an automated crane at one of China’s busiest ports moves cargo containers from a Korean freighter to self-driving trucks in a scene tech giant Huawei sees as its future after American sanctions crushed its smartphone brand. The backbone of the “smart terminal” at the Tianjin Port, east of Beijing, is a data network built by Huawei, which is reinventing itself as a supplier for self-driving cars, factories and other industries it hopes will be less vulnerable to Washington's worsening feud with Beijing over technology and security. The ruling Communist Party is promoting automation in industries from manufacturing to taxis to keep China’s economy growing as the workforce ages and starts to shrink. Its managers say the “smart terminal,” part of Tianjin's 200-square-kilometer (77-square-mile) port, allows 200 employees to move as much cargo as 800 used to. Read more: Huawei launches all-band 5G solution series “We believe this solution in Tianjin is the world’s most advanced,” said Yue Kun, chief technology officer of Huawei’s business unit for ports. “We believe it can be applied to other ports.” Huawei Technologies Ltd., which makes smartphones and is the biggest global supplier of network gear for phone carriers, struggled after then-President Donald Trump cut off access to American processor chips and other technology in 2019 in a feud with Beijing about security. Washington says Huawei is a security risk that might use its access to foreign phone networks to facilitate Chinese spying, an accusation the company denies. The United States and allies including Japan and Australia have banned or restricted use of Huawei equipment by their phone carriers. Smartphone sales outside China collapsed after Huawei lost music, maps and other services from Alphabet Inc.’s Google that handset buyers expect to see pre-loaded. Its low-end Honor brand was sold off in 2020 in hopes of reviving sales by separating it from the sanctions on its corporate parent. Huawei, with a workforce of almost 200,000, has held onto its status as the leading maker of network gear based on sales in China and other markets where Washington has had less success at encouraging governments to shun the company. “Huawei is already a key player” in data networks with a “wealth of knowledge,” said Paul Budde, an industry analyst. The company has created 20 teams to focus on factories, mines, hospitals, ports, power plants and other industrial customers. It says the auto unit has 3,000 people working on autonomous driving and invested $2 billion in the technology in 2020-21. Huawei was an early developer of “smart city” networks for traffic control and police surveillance. Read more: Huawei Bangladesh Academy launched in Dhaka “The big, black cloud here, however, is geopolitics," said Budde. "This will hamper its participation in overseas markets,” he said. “The issues are not technology but are purely political.” American pressure on Huawei spiraled into an international standoff in 2018 after its chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, daughter of its founder, was arrested in Canada on U.S. charges related to accusations of violating trade sanctions on Iran. China arrested two Canadians on spying charges, trying to win Meng's release. They were freed in September 2021 after Meng was allowed to return to China under an agreement with American prosecutors in which she took responsibility for misrepresenting Huawei's dealings with Iran. Huawei says its new focus already is helping to revive the company’s fortunes. “In 2020, we successfully pulled ourselves out of crisis mode,” said Eric Xu, one of three Huawei executives who take turns as chairman, in a December letter to employees. “U.S. restrictions are now our new normal, and we’re back to business as usual.” Last year’s revenue was forecast to be little-changed from 2021 at 636.9 billion yuan ($91.6 billion), Xu said. That was below Huawei’s double-digit growth of a decade earlier but an improvement over the 5.9% slide in the first half. He gave no breakdown by business line, but Huawei reported 2021 sales to industrial customers of 102.4 billion yuan ($16.1 billion). Sales of smartphones and other devices fell 25.3% from a year earlier in the first half of 2022 to 101.3 billion yuan ($15 billion). The auto unit, which supplies components and software for navigation, dashboard displays and managing vehicle systems, has played a role in five models released by three Chinese automakers. The ruling party's urgency about rolling out automation has risen as the size of China’s working age population 16 to 59 declined after hitting a peak in 2011. That group has shrunk by about 5%. Its share of the population slid from 70% to 62%. The Tianjin port managers told Huawei they already were having trouble finding and keeping truck drivers, according to Yue. “This can help to address the aging population issue,” said Yue. Yue said Huawei has talked with “people outside China” who might use its port technology, but he gave no details. The annual market for port-related network technology is modest at $2 billion, but global sales of gear to link factory and medical equipment, cars and other devices total $600 billion a year, according to Budde. He said that has the potential to replace Huawei's lost smartphone and other telecom sales, so long as foreign buyers aren't put off by security concerns. The Tianjin port's fleet of 88 battery-powered autonomous trucks are charged by wind turbines, according to a port spokesman, Peng Pai. “It’s much safer, and it uses clean energy,” said Peng. In a third-floor control room with floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over the port, a dozen operators sit in front of displays with as many as six screens showing video feeds of computer-controlled cranes lifting cargo boxes onto or off ships. Each can monitor as many as six cranes at once, unlike a traditional operator who serves only one ship. “People had to work high up in cranes,” said Yang Jiemin, a vice president of Tianjin Port Group. “Now, our operators can sit in an office and monitor equipment remotely.” Operators take control of a crane or truck if sensors indicate a problem, according to Huawei's Yue. He said the port’s goal is to cut that “takeover rate” to 0.1%, or one container in 1,000, while computers manage the handling of the others from start to finish. The high-speed network allows a crane or truck to react to a command in 1/100th of a second, even though the ships are 500 meters (one-third of a mile) away from the control room, according to Liu Xiwang, manager of the port’s information department. “You can’t feel the delay,” Liu said. Yue, the Huawei executive, was reluctant to say whether it needs processor chips or other foreign inputs that might be disrupted by U.S. sanctions. “I really don’t know the answer to your question,” Yue said after being asked twice about the sources of critical components. He compared it to buying a cup of coffee: “I don’t know who supplies the cup, the coffee beans and the water.”
Huawei has launched a specialised knowledge-sharing centre, Huawei Bangladesh Academy, in Dhaka. This 7,000 square feet facility is equipped with advanced technological equipment for knowledge sharing. The worldwide business case scenarios of the latest ICT innovations, engineering courses, solutions, and more – what Huawei has got with its significant investment in research and development for more than 30 years will be showcased here to the government technical officers, telco operators, academicians, CSE/EEE students, and overall ecosystem partners. Posts and Telecommunications Minister Mustafa Jabbar inaugurated the centre through an event organised at Bay's Galleria in Gulshan Thursday. Read: 'China's Tianjin Port now smarter, more efficient, thanks to Huawei' Jabbar said: "The establishment of Huawei Bangladesh Academy has attested to the fact that Bangladesh has been qualified to become the talent hub. On the other hand, Huawei has significant numbers of patents with its huge investment in research and development and this company has been making commendable efforts in developing the ICT industry of Bangladesh by contributing to the development of our telecommunication sector by equipping Bangladesh with their latest innovations." “The demographic dividend in Bangladesh has been a great example to the world while China can share its expertise in the technical field with the country. Huawei is one of the best tech companies in China and it is leading the ICT industry of the world with its significant investment in research and development," Chinese Ambassador to Bangladesh Li Jiming said at the event. Read: Huawei launches all-band 5G solution series "I am happy to see Huawei working here in Bangladesh, for Bangladesh for more than 23 years, and facilitating this country with its acquired knowledge. This Huawei Bangladesh Academy is an important step for the ecosystem players of Bangladesh." Pan Junfeng, CEO of Huawei Technologies Bangladesh, said: "We believe our knowledge and expertise can be helpful for the growth of Bangladesh in association with the help of the ecosystem partners. Our latest initiative is the Huawei Bangladesh Academy can be a hub for knowledge and experience sharing and bringing global cases into a discussion in this country."
Global ICT infrastructure and solutions provider Huawei, has come up with a 5G network, 4L autonomous driving and other technological innovations to make ports smart, safer and efficient. Recently, a smart terminal was built by Tianjin Port Group (TPG), together with Huawei and other partners. This initiative was taken to deal with port congestion that caused severe disruptions in global supply chains, goods handling problems and other port-related issues resulting in a decrease in overall efficiency. At the Tianjin Port, under the guidance of the BeiDou navigation satellite system, the whole process of moving the container trucks to the automatic locking and unlocking stations can now be completed in one go. "The intelligent and digital transformation of the port has led to tangible benefits and increased efficiency. Now, each container at the Tianjin Port consumes 20 percent less energy, and cranes are 20 percent more efficient on average, with each crane operating 39 container units per hour," Huawei said in a statement. Read: Huawei launches all-band 5G solution series Jason Li, board member of Huawei Bangladesh, said: "Smart ports and terminals can be the focal point in the next few years for realising the Smart Bangladesh vision. If Bangladesh can turn Chattogram and Mongla ports into smart ones, it will have very positive impacts on the economy and also help to address the problems in daily operations at ports." Tianjin port is one of China's most technologically advanced ports and a vital hub for the One Belt One Road initiative. It has a 300000-ton-class wharf with a channel depth of 22 meters. It has 192 berths of various types and 128 berths above the 10,000-ton-class. By the end of 2021, the port's cargo throughput reached 435 million tons, ranking ninth in the world, while the container throughput exceeded 18.35 million TEUs, ranking the eighth port in the world.
In an exclusive interview with UNB, Huawei's Asia Pacific Region's Vice President Zhang Zhengjun recently spoke about the tech giant's plans in Bangladesh. Q. 5G is here already. What are your plans for Bangladesh? Yes, in the Asia-Pacific region, 5G is already a hot topic. Korea and Japan were among the first countries to launch 5G. Thailand followed. Now, 30% of Thais are using 5G. Bangladesh is an important country for us. In 2020, Huawei participated in the Digital Bangladesh Mela where we showcased the real power of 5G -- mobile internet speed up to 1.6 GBps. We have had a lot discussions with the Bangladesh government and telecom operators. Though 4G has been catering to the needs of mobile users for watching videos on YouTube or using TikTok, or Facebook, I found weak signal at many places -- like in Sylhet and Mymensingh. There are 183 million mobile subscribers in Bangladesh. For such a large population, more cellular towers are required for ensuring better coverage. I believe Bangladesh Telecom Regulatory Authority (BTRC) and Post and Telecommunication Division (PTD) will encourage telecom companies to facilitate installation of more mobile towers in Bangladesh to provide continuous network coverages. And, this improvement should be ensured in all cities and rural areas across Bangladesh; not only in the major cities like Dhaka and Chattogram. So, this is important to bridge the digital divide. Read more: Huawei: Maximise network resources for 5G's commercial success Bangladesh government has already released 5G spectrum. However, 5G is more used in industrial areas. In China, for instance, 5G is widely in use in hospitals, port areas, manufacturing units. Bangladesh should take note of these things. PTD has plans to utilise 5G in Chattogram. In a port city like Chattogram, a lot of workers are there to control different machineries. They stay at their workplaces for a very long time. If 5G is introduced there, workers can control the machines remotely because of the low latency and massive connections. So, this kind of advantages could be used for industries in Chattogram and Mongla port areas and also at airports in different cities. For consumer uses, 4G is not bad, but l, of course, 5G will be better. Manufacturing units can benefit from the use of 5G. Assembling lines that need a lot of cables to connect with different equipment during the production of, say, a mobile handset, can use 5G to save time and money. In Bangladesh, the garment industry can also bank on artificial intelligence plus 5G to boost production. Q. You said that Thailand, China and Korea have already launched 5G. In Bangladesh, we are still advocating for 4G’s expansion and 5G’s industrial use. But what is your experience in these three countries? I think there are two aspects. People are more interested in 5G, especially in Korea, where there is a very big entertainment industry. People enjoy HD videos and gaming, which draw them to 5G. In Bangkok, thanks to 5G, the mobile internet speed is much faster and data traffic is much better. Moreover, different industries in both the countries also want to utilise 5G to improve efficiency and save costs. I think operators also want to promote 5G, because now, especially in countries like Bangladesh, there's 2G to 5G. And for every technology, you need a network, even more than one network, because you have a different spectrum. As there are so many networks, you need a lot of money for operation and maintenance; there’s a huge cost in terms of both Capex and Opex. So operators want to merge it; for example, in some countries, 3G has been shut down. In Bangladesh, I believe they will focus more on 4G and 5G. Q. What would be your suggestion for the country, which is lagging in 4G coverage but 5G is available? Let’s take Bangladesh as an example. The first suggestion is that 4G is the foundation. So, continuous and very good experience of 4G network is still needed. The government and operators need to join hands and work together with that, because in rural areas, honestly speaking, there’s not so much convenience there, because even if you put up a tower and set up the network, revenue is little. So how to encourage operators to set up the network in rural areas and make coverage continuous and seamless -- is an important topic. Read more: Huawei promises more innovation to push 5G operations ahead globally And secondly, I think that 5G should be used extensively in some peak traffic areas like Chattogram and Dhaka. Because there we have high-end users – some people who use 5G handsets want 5G and better experience in online gaming. Industries can use 5G for digitalisation that will help improve efficiency. Maybe you don’t have to roll out 5G countrywide in the very beginning, it depends on the needs. Q. The entire world is suffering from energy crisis. Bangladesh is no exception. In that case, how Huawei’s tech like 5G can help countries like ours in energy? Actually, regarding this, I think I can tell you two aspects. One thing is about the grid itself. Especially like in China, we use 5G to monitor the grid network to guarantee its smooth functioning. We also use drones to check power lines. Secondly, talking about energy, Huawei also have solar power solutions. A one-time investment on solar power can serve upto 30 years, and you don’t have to import more oil. Now the unit price of solar power is equal or even less than a unit of traditional electricity. Q. What about the health sector, do you have any plan for smart hospitals? I do believe every country needs smart hospitals. From a Bangladesh perspective, I believe you need a network to cover the entire country. Currently, every hospital is isolated, very independent. So, one common challenge is that one patient, when he or she goes to the hospital and do some checkups, and then it's difficult for them to get this record at another hospital because the data is not centralised. In rural areas, it's difficult for people to access proper healthcare. Here, comes the role of technology again. Read more: Huawei ICT Incubator announces top 6 startups from Bangladesh Q. You have a strong partnership in Bangladesh in building telecom structure. What's your next plan? We are in Bangladesh for 23 years. Huawei has different business groups. The first one we call it CNBG (Carrier Network Business Group) that is the area with telecom operators. Secondly, we have the Enterprise Business. We cooperate with enterprises and the government. The third one is Consumer Business Group that includes laptops, tablets and wearables. And another one is Huawei Cloud. We started Huawei Cloud in Bangladesh in 2018. Next is our Digital Power that reflects smart energy/solar power. So talking about solar power in Bangladesh, we cooperate with the government and try to promote it. We have the second largest solar power plant in Mymensingh. Q. Over the next five years or so, where does Huawei want to stand in Bangladesh? Actually, I believe the operators, I mean, the carrier business has still potential. Because 5G is not yet ready and 4G lacks countrywide coverage. So, I believe there is a high potential of work in this area. I can say that operators, regulators and also suppliers like us will need to understand each other and collaborate to make the network better. Especially now, we value our position in Bangladesh. Bangladesh's economy is stable and growing. So, now it is high time for Bangladesh to grow further in the digital sector. We are paying more and more attention to the Bangladesh market, and we will try to develop a better ecosystem.
Global giant Huawei’s chairman Ken Hu on Tuesday (October 25, 2022) promised to expand its investment and enhance innovation for ensuring better telecommunication under the 5G regime across the world. "5G has grown faster than any previous generation of mobile technology," Hu said in a keynote paper at the 13th Global Mobile Broadband Forum 2022, which began in Bangkok on Tuesday. "In just three years, we've seen solid progress in network deployment, consumer services, and industry applications,” he added saying that more than 230 carriers around the world have already launched commercial 5G services. Read:Huawei ICT Incubator announces top 6 startups from Bangladesh In total, he said, the industry has set up over three million 5G base stations, serving more than 700 million subscribers. "5G is in the fast lane," Hu said. “But there's more we can do…We need to work together to fully unleash the power of 5G networks and expand into services like cloud and system integration,” he said. Chinese company Huawei, together with its industry partners GSMA and GTI, is hosting the two-day event. Organisers say mobile network carriers, vertical industry leaders and ecosystem partners from around the world will discuss how to make 5G a commercial success, as well as other high-priority industry topics like green development, intelligence, and 5G evolution. Read:Huawei, RedDot team up to develop Bangladesh cloud market Hu said that in telecoms, consumer services still account for the bulk of carrier revenue. But now, he said, as 5G becomes more prevalent, its vastly superior experience is driving new shifts in consumer behavior, including a sharp rise in high-definition video traffic. He also said B2B 5G applications are also becoming a new engine for carrier revenue growth, producing considerable value in industries like oil and gas, manufacturing, and transportation. Read Huawei launches its largest-ever regional Seeds for the Future Program He said these applications are not only innovative – they're generating real commercial value for carriers. In 2021, for example, Chinese carriers brought in over $500 million in new revenue from more than 3,000 industrial 5G projects. “B2B 5G applications are poised to become the fastest growing revenue stream for carriers. 5G is enabling new service scenarios, applications, and business models, paving the way for unprecedented growth opportunities in the industry,” he said. He said to keep this momentum the carriers should work together. Read Huawei cloud, digital power teams onboard 60 fresh graduates "The industry needs to come together to define standards, prepare the spectrum, and build out the ecosystem," said Hu. “Industry digitalisation is the next wave of global economic development. As a key enabler of digital transformation, 5G opens up a world of new opportunities. But the ICT ecosystem needs to work together to make the most of them,” he said. He said Huawei would continue to follow the trend of innovation. Read Huawei: Maximise network resources for 5G's commercial success
