Huawei recently announced the launch of its Carrier Consulting Services and 5G Consulting portfolio and practice at the Huawei Global Analyst Summit (HAS 2020). Huawei Carrier Consulting Services’ aim is to help carriers to proactively cope with the opportunities and challenges brought by new technologies, new business, and new models, to create and obtain value for customers.
With changes to the ICT industry and the emergence of new technologies such as 5G, Cloud, and AI, and the rise of B2B market demand, carriers are facing more and more uncertainties and refined operational challenges. To solve these difficulties, carriers require comprehensive professional consulting services and solutions, covering strategic predictions, top-level design, product and offering designs, end-to-end network planning, operation optimization, and reconstruction and ecosystem value-based operations, to maximize investment benefits, achieve sustainable development and positive business cycles. On this basis, Huawei will now offer consulting services for the carrier market and its customers.
Based on Huawei’s rich experience and global practices in the carrier field, Huawei Carrier Consulting has developed the V-ID3EA® methodology, a consulting operation platform and more than 150 methods, models and tools to efficiently support global consulting project delivery. Huawei will provide carriers with 12 consulting portfolios in the four domains of strategy, business, operations, and networks.
These portfolios include: 5G Business-Network Synergetic Consulting, Value-based Management Consulting, Enterprise Know-how Consulting, Operation Optimization and Reconstruction Consulting, a DTPC® (Digital Transformation Practice Center), Operation Assistance Consulting, Video Consulting, Home/ Fixed Network Consulting, Consumer/ Mobile Network Consulting, Intelligent Operation Consulting, Digital Service Consulting, and Service Experience Monetization Consulting.
To address typical challenges faced by carriers in different stages of 5G development, such as a lack of confidence in 5G investment, difficulties in bridging the gap between massive sites, and the slow innovation of new products and offerings, Huawei 5G Business-Network Synergetic Consulting provides consulting services in the areas of 5G industry and service-network synergetic planning, 5G product and offering innovation, and large-scale 5G service development for carriers. It does this by offering close linkage with business design and network planning, Huawei’s profound professional knowledge, its DTPC innovation, and Cloud Open Labs platform. This ensures network deployment is driven by service development, on-demand network construction and precise network construction, to achieve a positive business cycle during 5G development. Huawei has already provided 5G consulting services to carriers in China, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and across the Asia Pacific region.
Huawei Carrier Consulting Services aims to become a professional consulting service provider with in-depth scenario capabilities, systematic analysis and problem-solving capabilities, with global reach and telecom industry know how.
As of today, Huawei Carrier Consulting has served more than 100 carrier customers around the world with the support of a consulting team distributed across nine regions and two competence centers. In the future, Huawei will continue to invest in carrier consulting services to help more carriers create and obtain value. Meanwhile, Huawei is expecting to cooperate with more global carriers, industry partners, and professional institutions to establish a regular communication mechanism to enhance mutual understanding and collaboration, thus playing a more active role in the development of the telecoms industry generally and the consulting industry specifically.
