Huawei’s Commitment For A Carbon Neutral Future At BWS’ Green ICT For Green Development

The world is witnessing an increasing demand for wireless networks, projecting an unprecedented rise in data traffic in the near future. Tech advancements made to satisfy this demand should go in sync with the goal of reducing carbon emissions by the ICT industry. As part of their social responsibility to grow in a sustainable manner, Huawei committed at the Better World Summit (Dubai, October 18) to incorporating green development as a key pillar of their business operations.

Huawei, one of the leading global providers of ICT infrastructure and smart devices, hosted the Better World Summit (BWS) in partnership with Informa Tech in Dubai on October 18, 2021. The event marked both companies’ commitment to green development, especially in the areas of ICT related technologies. Throughout the event, both companies’ representatives laid out a battery of green, sustainable and more efficient tech solutions to cut carbon emissions drastically, including the creation of a platform to that end.

And that would be only possible thanks to a collaborative effort of the network industry, materialized in the BWS under the Network Carbon Intensity (NCI) initiative, proposed jointly by the two companies back in June 2021. “With our innovative products and solutions, we will help operators cut carbon emissions and make their networks more energy efficient. We also want to work with operators and use ICT to better enable other industries to cut carbon emissions and become carbon neutral faster.” Bob Cai, Chief Marketing Officer of Huawei’s Carrier Business Group.

Bob Cai went on to assure that Huawei has set out on a mission to bring industry partners and operators together. For the CMO, this is a key step to share their latest and innovative technology and practices, cutting down carbon emissions and contributing to a greener ICT industry.

Taking place in the thriving city of Dubai The Better World Summit: Green ICT for Green Development gathered world-recognized speakers such as Richard Mahony, Vice President of Service Provider Markets of Informa Tech; Dr. Dena Assaf, UN Resident Coordinator of the United Arab Emirates; Dr. Ahmed Bin Ali, Corporate Communications SVP of Etisalat; Hervé Suquet, Group Energy SVP of Orange; Dirk Karl, Chief Procurement Officer of MTN; and Tanveer Mohammad, SVP of Global Operation of Telenor, and more.

The Role of the ICT Industry: Building Greener Network Solutions

While delivering his keynote speech “Green 5G Lights the Way to a Low Carbon Future ” Aaron Jiang, Vice President of Wireless Product Line, Huawei, presented the promising aspects of 5G technology as a rapidly emerging innovative engine to drive the growth of wireless networks.

He emphasized that: “In this context, we must innovate equipment, sites, and networks from end to end, to build green 5G networks that will facilitate low-carbon development”.

5G has become an essential wireless technology for industries, allowing for:

1) Enhanced Mobile Broadband, which enables faster data speeds as total capacity is expanded. This helped the introduction of first-edition 5G smartphones and fixed wireless access (FWA) services;

2) Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Connectivity, which is essential for autonomous driving, industrial automation and remote medical assistance applications; and

3) Massive Machine Type Control, which ensures 5G mobile networks are able to connect millions of devices per square kilometre – essential for the development of connected smart cities of the future.

Making this technology more efficient and greener is thus key to Huawei’s mission. The company is working hard towards that goal and has started to implement more efficient solutions in use cases all around the world.

Within that context, Huawei announced the flagship of their exhibition of various technological solutions for a greener future in “Innovation High Land” themed on “Lightning up the future” at Dubai, -that would remain open until the February of the next year-.

Mr. Cai told the delegates at the summit that, currently, the ICT industry enables other industries like coal mining, ports, manufacturing and agriculture, just to name a few. “ICT can make a great contribution to these industries to not only improve efficiency but to bring green solutions to realize carbon neutrality”.

For example, Huawei has deployed technologies like 5G, IoT, and cloud to agriculture in Switzerland to exemplify the application of technology for sustainable operations. To improve farmland management, it has partnered with others to use 5G empowered drones for targeted inspection of crops, intelligent computing, and control to reduce pesticide by about four-fifths, and herbicide use by half using AI on cloud. Mr. Cai assured that green ICT technologies will offer similar benefits to various other industries.

Tommy Stalden, Co-founder and General Partners of Giant Ventures, delegated the session “What a tech-enabled low carbon world looks like for consumers”. He lauded the technologies that Huawei showcased adding that it would help workers together even when they are apart.

R&D: Where The Green Tech Is Born

Huawei invests more than 10% of its sales revenue into R&D, pursuing innovations for continued improvements in efficiency. Its innovative solutions for telecom networks include algorithms for high-performance, technologies for effective heat dissipation, and the development of new materials. This promises to enhance energy efficiency in the telecom sector, as they showcased at the BWS.

With the aim to reduce its own carbon footprint, Huawei has installed a fully hydroelectric-powered R&D centre at Chengdu in Central China. Annually, while consuming 200mKWh of energy, it saves 177,000 tonnes of carbon. This is almost equal to planting 7.7 million trees. The company extends such efforts by assisting other organizations to cut their carbon emissions too.

Huawei also shared their Power 2.0 initiative at BWS. This is a result of its continuous innovation in the previous version of the software Power 1.0 (2018). After the success of its first version, this upgrade imparts a potentially more intelligent base station that can double its energy-saving performance. Aaron Jiang, Vice President of Wireless Product Line, Huawei commented, “Energy consumption is reduced by 25%, but KPIs are the same”.

Green Solutions At BWS

The company believes that end-to-end hardware innovation benefits in two ways- improving the energy efficiency of the device, and simplifying site construction in order to harness the maximum potential the site holds.

MetaAAU is one such hardware innovation to help the operators build green networks using an extremely large antenna array (ELAA). According to the field tests carried out in Hangzhou (China’s eastern Zhejiang), this reduces the power consumption by 30% while providing the same level of coverage.

Adding to the list, Mr. Jiang introduced Ultra-wideband RRU modules to integrate multiple single-band devices down into a single box with an ultra-compact form factor using ultra-wideband power amplifiers, advanced algorithms, and hardware units. This provides support for more bands and improves network coverage and capacity, without affecting power consumption.

The delegates learnt about the ultra-wideband RRU modules deployed 1800MHz and 2100MHz on top of the previous 2600MHz by a Russian operator, achieving a reduction in energy consumption by 16.4%, while improving the overall capacity by about 12%.

The company’s latest cabinet APM5950 can deploy outdoor sites with no requirement of equipment rooms or air conditioners, thereby reducing the overall site power consumption by 30%. This utilizes solar power to compensate for the main power consumption. This has been deployed in Greece, where the mains power consumption has been reduced by greater than 50%.

An intelligent innovation where service traffic collaborates with site hardware enabling it to adjust the power supply while maintaining the consumption efficiency, based on the traffic load, reduced the power consumption by 24% in Shanghai. Other features that enhance the optimal efficiency at the site operation include- service-adapted energy usage and service-driven smart temperature control.

One aspect of technology that could not draw much attention until recently has been achieving energy efficiency in antennas. Huawei has been achieving major breakthroughs here too. It has developed signal direct injection feeding (SDIF) technology through highly integrated design and advanced processing that is able to create a cable-free antenna structure. This facilitated a reduction in energy leak by the cables by eliminating about 100m cable length and eventually boosting its efficiency by 15%. Above that, with 20% lower transmit power, the same level of coverage could be achieved.

A Greener Commitment For The Future

According to the NCI initiative, proposed jointly by Huawei and Informa Tech, the new metric for green networks is the carbon emissions per bit of data used. Huawei believes that the pursuit of better lives must balance the need for lower carbon emissions. With BWS, Huawei takes a leap to realize its dream for green development.

Welcoming all industry partners and operators at the forum, Cai said, “At MWC Barcelona, 2022, Huawei will continue to hold a green development forum with its partners to share industry practices and latest solutions”.

The Magna Carta Island International Innovation Center (IIC)

The Magna Carta Island International Innovation Center (IIC) is headquartered on Magna Carta Island, which strongly befits its ambitions. Signed on 15 June 1215, on the island to which it gave its name, the Magna Carta is famous for being the first legal document in history to restrict the power of a King. Before the American Declaration of Independence (1776) or the French Declaration of the Rights of the Man and of the Citizen (1789), there was the Magna Carta. For eight centuries, it has borne a profound influence on legal charters and emancipatory movements across the world, and is still considered a symbol of freedom, of change and of progress.

The IIC continues in this vein, gathering the brightest and most innovative minds from the top universities and national institutions, as well as world-class tech-based companies and venture capital firms.

The IIC has four major functions centered on the following pillars overall: scientific research, technological innovation, industry and cultural leadership.

Scientific research and technological innovation functions are two pillars to drive commercialisation and transformation through product, market and management innovation.

The third pillar is industry. The IIC believes that the incubation and commercialisation of new technologies will not only promote new industries, but also promote the transformation and upgrading of traditional industries, especially manufacturing industries, and improve the economic competitiveness of cities and countries. The final pillar is cultural leadership. The IIC takes the view that technological advancement and industrial innovation will lead to new ways of production and lifestyle, and create a new business culture, thus leading cultural development around the world.

The World’s Leading Think Tank

By bringing the elite of British business and academia together with Chinese entrepreneurship, the IIC has become the premier of think tanks; its international teamwork radiating outwards into global influence. Its high-quality research findings, along with key strategic advice, have left an indelible mark in the UK and Europe, while playing an important role in promoting Chinese talent overseas. This mission is shared with the Taizhou Bay Sino-British Innovation Centre. With its newly inaugurated London base, the Taizhou Bay Sino-British Innovation is now in a perfect place to promote collaboration between the brightest British and Chinese minds and attract talent and investment to the burgeoning Taizhou Bay New Area.

Unsurprisingly, therefore, the IIC has built many partnerships. One of the most interesting is that with Henry Business School at the University of Reading, and Huawei Institute of Information and Network Technology at the University of Reading; this particular partnership was focused on creating elite training programs that combine traditional business education with the latest ICT cutting-edge innovation to train innovative business talents. One of the more recent partnerships is with technology platforms citiesabc, intelligenthq and openbusinesscouncil, all under the auspices of CEO and serial author Dinis Guarda, who was invited as a guest speaker at the IIC’s International Cooperation Forum.

The International Cooperation Forum

The UK International Innovation Centre (IIC) held its International Cooperation Forum at its Magna Carta Island headquarters on Sunday 30 May 2021. The Forum was co-hosted with the Taizhou Bay Sino-British Innovation Centre, with the launching ceremony taking place on Sunday afternoon. Attendants included:

º The Distinguished Professor Josef Kittler, PhD in Pattern Recognition from the University of Cambridge, Founder of the Surrey Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing, and member of the Royal Academy of Engineering.
º Dr Dinis Guarda, Chairman of the British Global Open Chamber of Commerce and Co-Founder of citiesabc, intelligenthq and openbusinesscouncil.
º Mr Wenjing Zeng, Founder and Director of Skyline Group.
Dr Salman Valibeik of Imperial College London, Co-Founder and CEO of Orpiva (an AI technology company).
º Ying Liangzhong, Deputy Secretary of the Party Working Committee of Thaizou Bay New Area.
º Zhang Jinlong, Chairman of the British Chamber of Commerce in China.
º Cai Hongbing, Dean and Chair of Economics at Hong Kong University Business School.

A keynote speech from Dinis Guarda on ‘Global Europe Innovation outlook and building a society 5.0 Magna Carta’.

The forum was presided over by Professor Xiong Yu, Chair Professor of the University of Surrey Business School and Director of the Innovation and Industry University Research Centre. The discussion mainly focused on exploring deeper Sino-British scientific and technological cooperation in the future, with a keynote speech from Dinis Guarda on ‘Global Europe Innovation outlook and building a society 5.0 Magna Carta’. Punning on the name of the think tank and its headquarters, Dr Guarda emphasised the importance of developing technology from a human-centric perspective. His Magna Carta on the future of society combines game-changing innovations like the Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, artificial intelligence and big data, with real, human-centric problem solving, in order to build a harmonious and sustainable world..

Dinis Guarda believes that China is a place where high-tech lends itself to practical application scenarios particularly well, and looks forward to exploring more opportunities for cooperation through the Taizhou Bay Sino-British Innovation Centre. The partnership struck between Guarda’s businesses and the IIC will promote the advancement of technology in areas as diverse as smart city indexes, NFTs and even healthcare – all fields where the benefits are chiefly human. This thought was echoed by Professor Kittler, who was profoundly marked by China’s rapid progress and eye for innovation when he visited in 1986.

The second keynote speech came from Dr. Salman Valibeik, and focused on “Future of Social Innovation”, using actual cases to show the richer application scenarios of high tech. For example, he demonstrated how AI technology can be used by brands. AI can identify which internet celebrities are more suitable for a certain brand’s image; or to create a series of high-exposure copywriting to enhance customers’ awareness of a brand; or to increase product exposure; provide planning activities; create content and data monitoring services; etc.

As demonstrated by the keynote speeches, the forum was a lightning rod for forward-thinking intellect and futurist perspectives on new technologies; a rich ecosystem of thought leaders building the world of tomorrow. Concrete measures were taken to pave the way towards progress: on behalf of Taizhou Bay Sino-British Innovation Center, Professor Xiong Yu signed a talent project cooperation agreement with Academician Josef Kittler; a strategic cooperation agreement with Mr. Zeng Wenjing, the founder of Skyline Group; and a third with Dr. Dinis Guarda.

These partnerships have the power to transform domestic and overseas scientific and technological achievements, and foster an era of Sino-British collaboration to foreground what Guarda refers to as ‘Society 5.0’: an era where intelligence is heightened and embedded in technological objects and utilised for the benefit of mankind.

Smart Cities Index IndexDNA Captures The Complex Relationship Between Citizens, Industry, Policymaking And Society

The First Ever Dynamic Smart City Index: citiesabc indexDNA Framework for Smart Cities Whitepaper Produced with citiesabc and openbusinesscouncil will be officially released at the openbusinesscouncil summit.

indexDNA Framework for Smart Cities is the name given to the smart city index developed by citiesabc in collaboration with the University of Durham. It captures the complex relationship between citizens, industry, policymaking and society.


“Cities are estimated to generate 80% of all economic growth and produce approximately 72% of all greenhouse gas emissions, despite covering only 3% of the land (UN). Urban city regions account for more than 50% of the total global population and is expected to be around 70% by 2050 (United Nations). This unprecedented movement towards urbanisation is growing at an exponential rate and is projected to be as high as 90% in some countries – notably in Asia and Africa – by 2050 (UN). Governments have been reactive to this migration trend and are experimenting with emerging and established technologies to provide services and solutions to this new wave [of] urbanisation. Many cities are taking proactive steps to make their cities ‘digitised’ or ‘smarter’. Such initiatives are called ‘smart city’ initiatives and are primarily focused on using a collection of technologies to provide timely and effective services to citizens.” (Professor Kiran Fernandes)

Despite the proliferation of smart city indexes emerging in response to the growing challenges of urbanisation, none so far have managed to rise above a static approach. The indexDNA Framework for Smart Cities whitepaper provides a comprehensive overview of a new, dynamic framework, based on the Quadruple Helix Innovation model.

The index is data-driven and gives a holistic view of a smart city on several dimensions like the economy, mobility, education, environment, governance and quality of life. indexDNA Framework for Smart Cities serves several purposes, from benchmarking cities to developing effective policies for transition to Society 5.0.

This report is a piece of academic literature which details the research and elaboration process behind the index, explaining how different metrics and data are applied to create an index which reflects real-time smart city development through advanced analytics. Diagrams are used to illustrate the multidirectional feedback systems that exist between key stakeholders, and the interactions between each layer of the indexDNA Framework for Smart Cities.

“We realised that smart city indexes operated within a static framework, making the results unreliable and in constant need of updates. Our approach is a dynamic one, identifying smart cities as human-centric and analysing the multidirectional feedback systems between the different pillars that make up a smart city. We are thrilled to have collaborated with the Centre for Innovation and Technology Management at the Durham University Business School, whose academic insights and deep research were crucial to creating our indexDNA. In doing this, we hope to set the blueprint for future smart city indexes and rankings,” said Dinis Guarda, one of the authors and CEO of citiesbc and openbusinesscouncil.

The report encourages readers to understand the smart city concept as human-centric rather than technology-centric; technology is not the root source of a smart city’s intelligence, but rather an enabler for it. The report also emphasises the importance of using smart technologies to integrate cyberspace and physical space. Finally, the report intends for readers to view the co-evolving core of the indexDNA framework as important to any smart city indexing activity, as it shows the importance of the citizen as well as the citizen’s relationship to the smart service systems.

The report will be launched at the OBC summit on Tuesday 20 April at 8am GMT. The OBC summit is a 3-day virtual conference on systems and solutions for businesses and governments to boost sales and growth amidst the challenges and restructurings faced by organisations and cities because of COVID-19. The summit provides a unique platform for both businesses and governments to promote their ideas and gain exposure with a global outreach through openbusinesscouncil awards and digital certification.
