Huawei partners with Infosys and Wapwag to release innovative practices based on open edge computing IoT

At HUAWEI CONNECT 2017, Huawei joined hands with Infosys, the provider of information technology and business consultation services in the industry, and Wapwag, a provider of smart water affair solutions. Together they released a series of important innovative practices including smart robots/ machine tools and smart water affairs based on open edge computing IoT, accelerating the implementation of industry applications.

Under the trend of digital transformation, industries such as manufacturing and water management are developing towards intelligent IoT. However, the network edge still faces many challenges such as having many heterogeneous connections and difficulties in data analysis, data processing, and device management.

The smart industrial robots or machine tools solution jointly released this time by Huawei and Infosys, based on open edge computing IoT, supports the interconnection with industrial robots or machine tools of different vendors, quickly adapts to intelligent data processing requirements in different industrial manufacturing scenarios, helps manufacturers anticipate faults, and improves maintenance efficiency of robots or machine tools.

Mike Liu, the vice president of Infosys and country head in Infosys Greater China, said, “Infosys and Huawei have jointly innovated the intelligent industrial robot or machine tool interconnection solution. The solution implements predictive maintenance, helping manufacturers greatly improve maintenance efficiency. The downtime of industrial robots or machine tools is reduced by over 70% and the defect rate is reduced by 40%. The solution can help schedule production based on device resource usage and it can also optimise production lines, significantly improving the production efficiency.”

In addition, the innovative smart water affairs solution jointly launched by Huawei and Wapwag, based on edge computing IoT, adapts to many different scenarios such as where old and new water supply devices coexist, when devices from multiple plants are deployed, and where there are many types of interfaces and protocols. The solution meets the demands of intelligent data processing at the edge in different water management scenarios and realises intelligent connections of water supply devices.

Feng Yang, the vice general manager of Wapwag (Shanghai) Smart Water Public Co., Ltd said, “The innovative smart water affair solution jointly launched by Huawei and Wapwag based on edge computing IoT provides a comprehensive solution, covering water supply planning, design, construction, operation, and O&M.

The solution monitors equipment and water quality in real time and anticipates device faults. It also helps water affair enterprises and business management departments ensure the safety and quality of supplied water and reduces O&M costs.”

Currently, Huawei edge computing IoT is in wide use in fields such as elevator connection networks, smart manufacturing, smart water affairs, power IoT, cities, and lighting IoT. Huawei has also recently joined hands with 116 partners in the industry to initiate the Edge Computing Consortium (ECC), promoting rapid innovation and accelerating digital transformation through open architecture.

Swift Liu, president of Huawei Network Solutions R&D Department and ECC vice chairman, said, “The Huawei edge computing IoT solution is extremely open. It supports various industrial protocols and interfaces and is widely applied to various industry connectivity scenarios.

In addition, it leverages its open edge computing capabilities and cloud management architecture to rapidly meet intelligent data processing requirements in different industries. This helps industries quickly innovate, improves production efficiency and quality, reduces O&M costs, and improves public services.”

Huawei enterprise network products and solutions are already in use in more than 100 countries and regions around the world. Enterprise digital transformation is accelerated through the smart connection of everything. To date, 197 of the Fortune 500 and 45 of the top 100 have selected Huawei as their digital transformation partner.
