HNSciCloud represented at HUAWEI CONNECT 2017 in Shanghai

HUAWEI CONNECT is an annual conference for the global ICT ecosystem, where industry and research leaders share ideas, explore technologies, and join forces for shared growth. The topic of 2017 conference was "Grow with the Cloud".

HUAWEI CONNECT 2017 highlighted the latest progress by telecom carriers in finding new growth areas in the industry. Huawei and its partners, also discussed how cloud and network synergies can help carriers play to their strengths and support the digital transformation of vertical industries.

Via the cloud, carriers will be able to develop entirely new blue ocean markets in industry, government, enterprises and research institutes with services like IoT, video, communications, computing, and storage. Developing cloud, IoT, and video services presents not only technological hurdles, but also opportunities for scientific research.

In this ecosystem ​HNSciCloud was invited to make a keynote presentation ​to promote the activities of HNSciCloud and its Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) to an audience of more than 700 participants from large industry
