At the Hannover Messe 2017 preview event, Huawei today announced it will showcase its latest platforms, technologies and solutions to accelerate digital industrial transformation, during Hannover Messe 2017.
Huawei will highlight how its innovations, based on the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud, big data, software-defined networking (SDN), and enterprise wireless technologies, enable industrial businesses to thrive in Industry 4.0. The company will also host a panel discussion to share valuable insights into how businesses can advance their digital industrial transformation journey to capitalize on new growth opportunities.
Hannover Messe is the world’s largest industrial fair and a key platform for innovations and technologies that power “Industry 4.0”, a term created in Hannover Messe 2011, which is revolutionizing the industrial landscape by integrating digital advances into the heart of production and manufacturing systems. This year, under the theme of “Digital Factory”, Huawei will participate in Hannover Messe 2017. This is the only event that reflects the entire industrial value chain, creating an ideal platform for Huawei to present its ICT solutions and products for the industrial sector.
During the preview event, Fan Ruiqi, Vice President of Enterprise Business Huawei Western Europe, said, “As Industry 4.0 gathers momentum industrial businesses need to evolve quickly, or risk being left behind their competitors. Huawei works with its global partners including SAP, Deutsche Telekom AG, and Honeywell, to jointly develop solutions that enable digital transformation to realize opportunities within this new era. These solutions are deployed by a growing number of Fortune Global 500 companies and at Hannover Messe 2017, Huawei will centrally exhibit innovative ICT solutions covering many aspects of industrial value chain including design, decision-making, production, logistics, services, and maintenance. Together with our customers and partners, we will also share deep insights into strategies and best practices for digital industrial transformation.”
Following the first and second industrial revolutions, the manufacturing industry is moving quickly towards Industry 4.0 where intelligent and connected technology and systems support manufacturing activities throughout the value chain. Human, application systems, and smart machines are interconnecting with unprecedented speed, ushering in a new era of network-enabled manufacturing. To help industrial businesses adapt to this rapid change, Huawei delivers new ICT technologies, such as mobile IoT, cloud, and big data, to create efficient ICT solutions, which are now serving customers across manufacturing, energy, and logistics sectors.
Huawei’s recent initiatives also include:
Starting to develop an alliance cooperation with KUKA, a world-leading robot technology supplier, to jointly develop smart manufacturing solutions for the manufacturing markets in Europe and China.
A cooperation MOU signed with ABB signed in 2016, where the two companies will work together to integrate Huawei’s 4G LTE-based OneAir products and technology with ABB’s robot and industry automation solutions. These solutions enable remote wireless monitoring, management, configuration, and O&M of robots, big data applications, and visual, smart production.
In the European market, deployment of numerous large-scale, high-performance computing clusters for industry-leading car manufacturers and first-grade scientific research institutes using the High-Performance Computing (HPC) Solution.
Hannover Messe 2017 will take place from April 24 to 28, 2017 in the Hannover Exhibition Center. Huawei’s booth will be located at A26 in Hall 7.
