ALMATY, Kazakhstan, August 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
With energy as a driving force for global economic development, energy companies are encountering a multitude of challenges as they move towards digital transformation. Against this backdrop, Huawei hosted its Global Energy Industry Summit 2015 with the theme of "Innovative ICT Enables Smart Energy" in Almaty, Kazakhstan, from August 19 to 20, 2015. The summit gathered over two hundred attendees to discuss the application of innovative ICT technologies / solutions in the energy industry to enhance production efficiency, enable scientific management and ensure secure operations.
Also at the summit, Jerry Ji, President of the Energy Industry, Huawei Enterprise Business Group, delivered a keynote speech titled "Innovative ICT Empowers Smart Energy", in which he said, "Innovative ICT will drive growth in the energy industry, and we expect the world to have 100 billion data connections across industries by 2025. The oil and gas industry will witness the ever-increasing application of smart devices, which generate large volumes of data. This data will need to be analyzed and stored. As such, traditional OT devices will gradually develop new IT features to keep pace with industry trends. Huawei, in efforts to address this emerging trend, launched its innovative 'cloud-pipe-device' architecture to apply innovative ICT technologies and solutions. This includes cloud data center and big data, agile networks and LTE, Internet of Things gateway and open-source IoT operating system 'LiteOS'. These technologies can be applied to the entire production process for transformation. Eighty-five percent of crude oil and seventy percent of natural gas are transported by pipelines that stretch thousands of miles around the world. As a result, it is important for oil and gas companies to ensure safe, reliable and efficient operations across these long-distance pipelines." Huawei is joined by CNPC Richfit, CPPE, ABB, and Honeywell, to launch an end-to-end digital pipeline solution to provide integrated services covering consultation and design, ICT infrastructure, production automation, applications, and services.
"Central Asia is the world's third largest oilfield and plays an important role in the global oil and gas industry. Since we established in Central Asia in 1997, Huawei has been committed to providing competitive end-to-end ICT solutions and services to telecom carriers, enterprises, and consumers by bringing cutting-edge communications technologies and products into the region," said Mike Han, President of Huawei's Central Asia & Caucasia Enterprise Business.
