With a goal of revolutionizing connectivity standards, Huawei unveiled its highly anticipated Wi-Fi 7 product along with a suite of groundbreaking solutions aimed to accelerate various industries’ digitalization at the recent Huawei Philippines IP Club 2023, where innovation, excellence, and sustainability form the core pillars of progress and evolution of digital transformation.
Hacken Li, the Chief Technology Officer of Huawei Datacom Product Line, introduced the latest technologies Huawei has developed to improve the internet connectivity experience.
“IP network is the bridge for digitalization transformation, constant changes in terminals and applications drive continuous evolution of network. Huawei continues to lead in areas such as Wi-Fi 7-based 10G campuses, cloud network convergence transport, and AI data center networks, and offer the best solution to Philippine enterprises, government, and educational institutions to accelerate digital transformation in Philippines,” said Hacken Li.
The Huawei AirEngine 8771-X1T is the industry’s first enterprise flagship Wi-Fi 7 access point, supporting the new 6 GHz frequency band, increasing the frequency bandwidth from 160 MHz to 320 MHz.
“The main difference of Wi-Fi 7 from Wi-Fi 6 is the new spectrum, providing faster and more reliable data transfer. And, more beautiful and more energy efficient,” said Li. According to him, this new spectrum offers lower latency and is able to provide stability even in high-density scenarios, for instance, stadium dense deployments.
“We believe that Wi-Fi 7 is the future-oriented technology, which is why we chose to make the R&D investment in the Wi-Fi 7 directly. That’s why we can promote this kind of technology first in the industry. We are the first vendor to provide enterprises the Wi-Fi 7 access point in the market,” he added.
As enterprises and various sectors accelerate digital transformation, Huawei believes that Wi-Fi 7’s high-speed connectivity can enable seamless online learning experiences and facilitate real-time collaboration among students and educators, bolster government operations and facilitate efficient services, and enable control and optimization of processes instantaneously for businesses, fostering progress and development, and significantly improving the user experience with consistent and more secure connections.
“The network is the cornerstone of digital transformation. If you want to be more efficient in digital transformation, the first thing you need is a very strong and reliable digital infrastructure—networks, servers. Huawei would like to offer the best solution to Philippine enterprises, government, and educational institutions to help them improve the efficiency of digital transformation,” said Li.
Huawei also announced that it has won the “Best Enterprise Wi-Fi Network 2023” Award at the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) Industry Awards 2023 for its field-proven high-quality AirEngine Wi-Fi 7 Network Solution.
Huawei continues to develop forward thinking solutions that not only showcase excellence but also contribute to a sustainable future.
