Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, has introduced an extensive ‘Connected Home Solution’ to consumers which aims to advance digital life at home by bringing a richer and more automated home entertainment and office experience to individuals worldwide. The cloud package seamlessly connects the latest innovations in home entertainment, small/home office (SOHO) technologies, and home security solutions.
Huawei’s Connected Home Solution has been developed specifically for families, small to middle-sized enterprises, and customers across the broadcasting and telecommunications industry. The cloud package can be implemented without additional network investment, which is particularly beneficial and cost-effective for commercial organizations. Users are provided with integrated applications including dynamic games & controls, Internet on TV, IPTV entertainment, SOHO security apps and device content sharing—all with cloud access.
Building momentum in the Middle East region, research group IDC noted in a recent 2012 outlook that cloud offerings will receive more serious attention in the year to come, with virtualization moving to attain “must-have” status. A new survey from IBM also found that while only 13% of businesses have substantially implemented cloud-based offerings, they are expected to grow to 41% in the next three years.
“Huawei Device is taking the lead in integrating products and solutions combining digital media, the digital distribution business, network terminals and storage,” said Jerry Zhi, Director of Home Device, Huawei Device. “The Connected Home Solution will bring benefits to people across all aspects of their lives. Mobile security alerts if someone breaks into your home; Internet on your TV; life-like sports games without a professional video game device. These are no longer limited to visions of the future.”
Huawei Device’s success in the home device market provides Huawei with a unique position in which to take a leadership role in the integration of home devices and cloud computing market. Huawei Device currently provides intelligent high-definition set-top boxes, high-performance home gateways, cloud terminals, and intelligent terminals that support DLNA technology—as well as cross-industry products such as mobile phones and tablet PCs.
