Huawei Offers a Green Development Vision, Breaking Through “Material, Energy, and Information” Technological Bottlenecks


Huawei presented a green industry strategy focused on the development of future networks at the Going Green Summit organised by the GSMA in Barcelona.


According to Peng Song, Huawei’s president of ICT Strategy & Marketing, the world is made up of three basic elements: matter, energy, and information. He clarified that these three components—matter, energy, and information—are essential to everything people do and that they serve as the building blocks for everything we do.


Huawei has used this model of matter, energy, and information to direct its product and solution innovation, according to Peng, who claims that it decides whether we can create a green world. Using this model, Huawei has suggested a strategy for the growth of the green industry in order to meet the needs of evolving networks:


1. Subject: Major technical advancements unleash hardware potential


Huawei has been working to improve the energy conversion efficiency of hardware for the past 30 years, building on its study in fundamental theories and materials. Research on related topics has played a significant role in the development of novel innovations in disruptive sensor technologies.



  • For example, the Signal Direct Injection Feeding (SDIF) technology that Huawei uses in antennas removes the 100 meters of feeders currently used inside antennas, reducing feeder loss and increasing antenna efficiency by 15%.
  • In order to improve energy savings for 5G, Huawei has also switched to deep dormancy features. Huawei’s next-generation AAU, which is presently being planned, will shut down most radio frequencies and digital channels when networks are idle, and only keep interface power supply on. With a reduction in power consumption from 300 watts to 10 watts, “zero bits, zero watts” will become a fact.
  • The business is also looking into a variety of materials, such as its own self-designed titanium-plated and high-conductivity power amps that use diamond substrates. Power amplifiers use 21% less energy as a result of these novel materials.


2. Energy: Local intelligence improves the energy efficiency of networks


According to Peng, the energy sector should concentrate more on the effective transfer and exchange of energy in networks. For instance, when energy enters a network, the majority of it is used to handle data flows while the remainder is converted to waste heat. In order to increase energy efficiency, Huawei’s next-generation green network design, which consists of three layers:



  • Equipment at the NE layer is intelligently conscious of its energy use and can adjust it to meet service requirements.
  • Sites can intelligently work together at the network layer to conserve electricity. By doing this, network-wide energy usage can be reduced.
  • Utilizing knowledge gained from experience and information on energy efficiency, the cloud conducts modelling and analysis at the service layer. Additionally, it refines algorithms and trains models for particular energy-saving situations. Thus, intent-driven, scenario-based energy savings are made possible.


3. Information: Software algorithm reconstruction unlocks data worth


Peng further stated that in terms of information processing, Huawei is working to reconstruct software algorithms for more efficient information scheduling and management. At the moment, AIGC is very well-liked. Traditional text-based interactions are replaced with multimodal interactions that include graphics, text, and video. The frequency of interactions has also significantly grown. By 2030, Huawei predicts that this app will generate an extra 13.5 GB DOU each month, increase carrier network traffic by 100 times, and increase network energy consumption by 25 times. Therefore, improved information scheduling and management will be required for networks in the future.


Huawei has created a mobile intelligent engine that can take the place of manual data gathering and analysis in order to address this problem. It obtains information about site coverage, traffic, and services instantly. Using an intelligent platform, it analyses, learns from, and models this information in real time. Based on the frequency bands and modules of each site, this digital model can produce energy saving strategies unique to that particular location. Due to the ability to schedule resources in real-time for dormancy in the frequency, spatial, temporal, and power domains, software energy savings are maximised while maintaining a consistent user experience.


Mr. Peng Song concluded his speech by stating that Huawei would keep making investments in fundamental theories, materials, and algorithms to break through major technological barriers in matter, energy, and information. This would give Huawei the skills necessary to develop goods and services with the best performance and energy efficiency, and ultimately help the industry move towards a greener future.
