Huawei to Develop Smart Manufacturing Solutions for Industrial Markets
FREMONT, CA: In a recent development, Huawei has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the firm KUKA at CeBIT 2016 to develop smart manufacturing solutions for industrial markets. As part of the understanding, both the companies are to work together in areas such as Cloud Computing, Big Data, Mobile Technology and Industrial Robots to help customers embrace Smart Manufacturing.
Ryan Ding, Executive Director and President of Products & Solutions, Huawei stated, “KUKA plays a central role in promoting and developing smart manufacturing solutions in Germany and across the world. We’re confident that our strategic partnership with KUKA will enable Huawei to lead the way in helping global manufacturing enterprises transform their factories and gain significant competitive advantages from realizing smart manufacturing.”
With smart manufacturing evolving swiftly through intelligent and interconnected systems, the partnership focuses on research and development with emphasis on the use of small cell Internet of Things (IoT), wireless and 5G networks. Emphasis will also be laid on the deployment of Huawei's Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution to develop cloud-hosted smart manufacturing services.
Apart from this, a joint robot programming team is to be formed to explore the use of imitative deep learning in advanced manufacturing environments. The collaboration aims to promote and develop intelligent manufacturing through the application of innovative IoT-enabled industrial solutions in both the countries through their initiatives such as ‘Industry 4.0’ and ‘Made in China 2025’.
“Digitalisation and the implementation of Industrie 4.0 will bring fundamental changes to industrial production and necessitate new products, solutions and concepts,” says Peter Mohnen, Member of the Executive Board for Finance and Controlling (CFO), KUKA AG. He added that though the electronic industry is being challenged by a number of factors, their company sees great potential in the market.
