Huawei today announced Indoor Connected Solution (ICS), to assist operators in improving both indoor user experience and ROI. Additionally, this solution accelerates indoor digital transformation and helps operators explore new opportunities for increasing revenue by providing value-added services.
Mobile data services are evolving rapidly, and over 70% of data is generated indoors, so improving the indoor user experience is the key to seizing the high ground on value data traffic. Fast developing video and OTT services require enhanced indoor networks, the traditional indoor coverage solution does not support high capacity, high density, multiple services that facilitate an enhanced user experience; at the same time, intelligent application services, such as indoor navigation, smart parking and smart enterprise are already creating a pressing need for indoor networks, which provides an optimal opportunity for operators to achieve digital transformation and explore new opportunities for increasing revenue.
Huawei ICS, with the capabilities of Precise Network Planning, Indoor Positioning, IoT Integration and others, provides end-to-end solutions for indoor scenarios to meet the diversified service needs of end users.
The Beijing National Stadium, also known as the ‘Bird’s Nest’, where hosted tens of thousands of spectators during the 2015 World Athletics Championships. Huawei became a partner with three tier-1 Chinese operators, taking advantages of capacity planning, precise design and simulation, which helped guarantee a great user experience. The downlink peak rate was 104 Mbit/s, and a 1.5 time’s traffic volume was achieved than before. Huawei ICS helps to release suppressed traffic.
In 2016 Mobile World Congress venue, Huawei cooperated with Vodafone to achieve amazing performance results for the users, doubled throughput when compared to last year, and doubled the number of customers and 9 times the amount of data traffic. Huawei also tried out some innovations, and showed the value-added services, such as heat map, message push as well as indoor navigation, which are more and more important for operators in enterprise market.
About Indoor IoT, in Hangzhou, China and in Canada, Huawei cooperated with operators to supply both communications and intelligent parking services through mobile network, and helped the enterprise to save cost and increase revenue through efficient operation, which will help operators to further tap service potential for enterprise users.
Huawei will continue to invest in the domain of Indoor Connected Solution. Firstly, Huawei will establish an ICS Open Lab that verifies multi-service, multi-vendor E2E integration solutions; secondly, Huawei will continue to deepen cooperation with industry partners, including on business model design, technology joint developments and business cooperation to accelerate indoor digital transformation, to open up an era of indoor fully-connected experience together.Huawei aims to enrich life and improve efficiency through a better connected world. Huawei has established an end-to-end ICT solutions portfolio that gives customers competitive advantages in telecom and enterprise networks, devices and cloud computing.
