2019 Annual Report (^81)
● In partnership with open source communities, we
launched the OpenLab program that supports
better integration across communities, and
released integration and verification baselines.
● We support open certification to enable more
effective open source commercialization.
Under the Linux Foundation Networking (LFN)
umbrella, we led the OPNFV Verification
Program (OVP) to ease interoperability issues
between vendors.
● In the ONAP community, we teamed up
with China Mobile and Tencent to develop a
showcase application that supports automatic
deployment and intelligent control of 5G
private lines for third-party applications. This
application won the 2019 Innovation Award at
the Global Network Technology Conference.
■ We work with leading open source communities
to build out the Arm ecosystem. We continue
to provide the infrastructure needed for Arm
development, compilation, and verification, and
share best practices in optimization for Arm. With
our support, more open source communities can
support development, optimization, and release on
■ More open source releases of Huawei software:
We announced plans to release the code for our
ARK Compiler, OpenEuler, and GaussDB OLTP
standalone version. We also released a number
of complete projects, including basic software,
cloud native services, big data, microservices, and
storage. Examples include the release of Cyborg
for OpenStack; CarbonData for big data; SODA for
intelligent data and storage; KubeEdge and Volcano
for cloud native communities; and ServiceComb
for microservices. These open source projects have
been widely used by developers and user groups.
Technological innovation
Huawei is committed to open innovation
and close collaboration between
industry and scientific researchers. By
bridging the gap between innovation
and standardization, we have become
a meaningful contributor to global
standards and industry ecosystems.
Only innovation can drive progress and steer our
path to the future. Huawei itself is shifting from an
Innovation 1.0 model to Innovation 2.0. In Innovation
1.0, we focused on innovation in technology and
engineering to meet our customers’ needs. Innovation
2.0 means breakthroughs in basic theory and
developing new basic technologies, driven by our
shared vision for the future. We continue to push
to the very edges of the Shannon Limit and break
through the confines of Moore’s law, so that our
technologies can continue to support the exponential
growth of information in the intelligent world.
■ Huawei has helped bring together industry demand
with the academic researcher community. We have
engaged in a number of research partnerships, and
continue to provide increased support for research
into basic technologies and basic theories.
● We enable two-way communication and
partnerships between universities and
businesses. Our academic salons have helped
academic researchers better understand
real-world needs and challenges that the
industry faces. On this basis, we and our
research partners have been able to jointly
develop research proposals that directly address
the constraints of existing technology.
● The Huawei Innovation Research Program (HIRP)
has provided funding for innovation projects
at more than 400 universities and research
institutes, and more than 900 businesses across
over 30 countries and regions. In Europe, this
program has disbursed a total of US$100 million
in research funding. We work with 140 European
universities, research institutes, and consulting
agencies, and have supported the work of more
than 230 researchers and over 150 academic
institutions in Europe.
■ We established the Huawei Institute of Strategic
Research, which will boost our ability to research
the cutting-edge technologies that are still five to
ten years into the future. It will propose questions
and potential solutions based on our vision and our
insight into the latest technology trends; identify
future technology pathways and their commercial
potential; and incubate new technologies, new
product types, new business models, and new
opportunities for the industry. This institute will
ensure that Huawei does not lose its way and miss
out on future opportunities.
■ We have boosted investment in trustworthy technology
to strengthen our position as a trusted supplier and
partner in the industry. In 2019, we established a
lab that will focus on innovations in trustworthiness
theories and breakthroughs in key technologies. With
this lab, we aim to improve our software engineering
and develop new ways to enhance the trustworthiness
