Huawei: Broadband needs to adapt for 4K, VR, and IoT

Chinese network provider Huawei has outlined the key drivers telecoms operators should be focused on when looking at providing broadband solutions in the future.

Speaking at this year’s Huawei Ultra Broadband Forum in Frankfurt last month, David Wang, President of Huawei Network Solutions, said telecoms operators “should rethink their role and business model in the B2C, B2B and IoT markets.”

The drive towards 4K video, Virtual Reality, ever-increasing Cloud adoption, and the Internet of Things means ultrafast broadband is a key component in “the fundamental building blocks of the intelligent world,” he said.

The company outlined it’s latest Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC) strategy, also known as FMC 3.0, which focuses around connecting every device and ensuring adequate network coverage, ensuring a better customer experience, and embracing the cloud and ensuring operators have the opportunity to monetize new cloud-based services.

“By building up a ubiquitous, experience-driven, agile and on-demand ultra-broadband network, telecom operators will be able to monetize the business opportunities created by vertical market digital transformation.”

FMC 1.0 was simply focused around the broadband connection and networks, v 2.0 was focused on the monetization of services, while FMC 3.0 is about the next steps beyond that.
