Devices and Platforms
Huawei’s devices and platforms are more mature relative to its Artificial Intelligence (AI) and cloud solutions, and at the conference Huawei displayed some of its accomplishments. Its HiSilicon division announced 10 million shipments of Boudica Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) chips in 2017, and the division is forecasting shipments of 150 million in 2018. It also has an aggressive time frame for 5G-capable devices. In 2018 Huawei plans to offer the first 5G home router and in 2019, their first 5G smartphone.
Huawei is also rounding out its IoT device portfolio with the Huawei LiteOS, designed for Low-Power, Wide-Area (LPWA) devices, particularly NB-IoT devices. It offers multi-MCU and multicommunications protocol support, a low-power framework for MCU-based application development, and IoT device-to-cloud platform support with the benefits of reduced development costs and fast delivery to market. Huawei is forecasting that 20 million LiteOS devices will ship in 2018, growing to 120 million LiteOS devices in 2020.
