Huawei upgrades APAC R&D ops in Singapore

Huawei is investing US$20 million to upgrade its research and development (R&D) operations in Singapore. The Huawei OpenLab 3.0 Asia-Pacific aims to adapt solutions to meet the specific needs of the region.

As a space for collaboration with partners, it will combine expertise and technologies to speed up digital transformation across the public and private sectors in Asia Pacific (APAC).

“The booming digital economy in APAC will lead to new innovative services and applications. To accelerate the digital transformation of industries, a more open and diversified industry ecosystem is required. OpenLab 3.0 is a global technology platform for local partners, customers and institutions of higher learning in APAC. It explores joint solutions based on the demands of various industries and continuously contributes to building the Digital APAC,” said Nicholas Ma, President of Huawei APAC Enterprise Business Group.

OpenLab 3.0 will enable Huawei to better collaborate with local partners to create customer-centric and innovative scenario-based solutions that meet regional needs.

Based on its capabilities in wireless and optical networks, storage, cloud and AI, Huawei has developed integrated solutions such as Smart Campus, Smart Classroom, and Smart City. Collaborating with customers allows the solutions to be better tailored to meet needs through joint innovation.

The lab will be a platform for innovation, experience and knowhow sharing and is set to emerge as a pivotal hub for talent cultivation across the region.

“OpenLab 1.0 to 2.0 have been looking at tomorrow from today’s perspective. OpenLab 3.0 is about cooperating with our partners to look at tomorrow from the day after tomorrow’s perspective and explore more possibilities in the future through our comprehensive innovative R&D capabilities and investment,” said Foo Fang Yong, CEO of Huawei International.

Besides Singapore, Huawei has established OpenLabs in Suzhou, Munich, Istanbul, and Dubai, jointly developing and launching technologies and solutions with more than 400 partners worldwide.
