Earlier today, Huawei held a press conference where Huawei’s rotating chairman, Xu Zhijun, delivered a keynote speech. His speech is geared towards Huawei’s 5G development. He said that due to the pandemic, carbon emission reduction, and the increasingly complex global business environment, the world has realized that digital transformation is very realistic and urgent. According to data from McKinsey, the global digitalization process has advanced by seven years. As for the Asia-Pacific region, it has even advanced by ten years.
In terms of the basic technologies required for digital transformation, 5G global commercial networks are necessary. According to Huawei, it how has 176 commercial 5G networks. The world has explored more than 10,000 projects for the application of 5G for industry digitization. Furthermore, Huawei claims that its 5G users now exceed 490 million.
According to IDG data, 81% of organizations worldwide already use cloud computing or have applications on the cloud. According to Roland Berger’s research, AI has penetrated into various industries. More than 60% of industries have adopted AI in high-tech and telecommunications, financial, automotive, and assembly industries. Also, the proportion of AI applications in commerce, medical, retail, and other industries is increasing.

According to Huawei’s official website, Huawei recently passed the 5G Core Network Security Assurance Specification (SCAS) test defined by 3GPP. After the industry’s first GSMA product development and life cycle process audit, it officially passed GSMA NESAS complete security assessment for 5GC network equipment. 5GC (5G Core Network) is the 5G core network. According to reports, the test was performed by the SGS Brightsight laboratory in the Netherlands. The test conclusions are currently on GSMA official website.
According to reports, NESAS is a network security test specification and evaluation mechanism is from GSMA and 3GPP. The test object is Huawei’s core network (5GC network element equipment). This also includes four products, UNC, UDG, UPCF, and UDM. Furthermore, the test content covers general security, business function security, transmission security, and operation and maintenance security.
