FREMONT, CA: Huawei, a provider of Information and Communication Technology solutions, reveals many innovative Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing products and solutions for enterprises.
Huawei is making alliances with enterprises to focus on several key projects enabling and driving forward & ongoing fourth industrial and Internet-of-Things, revolution.
Cloud computing, big data, high-performance computing, and software-defined networking are the fundamental strategies of Industry 4.0 for improving the efficiency and competitiveness of enterprises.
Key projects by Huawei in collaboration with different consumers are carried out in the field of road safety, agriculture, & energy.
Huawei will develop a car crash simulation solution in collaboration with ESI Group which will be based on its high-performance computing (HPC) technology and modeled on an ESI virtual reality solution. HPC simulation will provide customers with equivalent digital equipment room layouts to those found in real car crash environments. Designers can keep improving virtual prototypes during product R&D to reduce physical prototype hardware requirements which will reduce design costs and shorten product development cycles when designing and developing new cars.
In collaboration with its partner, Fraunhofer, Huawei is demonstrating a jointly-developed solution for HOLMER Maschinenbau GmbH, a leading German agricultural machinery manufacturer. The solution consists of more than 200 sensors collecting operating data generated by HOLMER's agricultural machinery in real time. The 'big data' is uploaded through Huawei industrial routers to the cloud for analysis on the data to improve the operating efficiency of HOLMER's agricultural machinery.
Huawei is offering many solutions for oil and gas industry, including an oilfield analytics solution based on SAP HANA, an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) solution, and a gas pipeline monitoring solution.
Predictive maintenance is also forming a large part of an industry shift to manufacturing services. Huawei is also exhibiting a predictive maintenance solution for an elevator. The efficiency of outsourcing predictive maintenance is gained by reporting real-time engineering information, including location, running data, and status, to maintenance centers against baseline data sets for fault-modeling and failure analysis.
"Pioneering a new era in ICT innovation, we're working to ensure our customers are able to quickly reap the rewards of the fourth industrial revolution by developing solutions providing real benefits for enterprises across multiple industries," says Karabet Krikorian, Head of WEU IoT & Industry 4.0 Solution Innovation, WEU Solutions Management, Huawei. "We work with nearly a thousand partners across Western Europe to jointly develop solutions based on the key principle of openness to ensure full integration and easy deployment. Hannover MESSE 2016 has been a great opportunity to bring these experiences to life."
