Delivering cloud based agile, efficient IoT operation and monetization supported by proven carrier grade performance. China Mobile standardizes on Huawei OceanConnect CEP Cloud as group IoT Platform to enable ‘Big Connection’ strategy.

Huawei announces the launch of its OceanConnect CEP(Connectivity Enablement Platform) Cloud at Huawei Operation Transformation Forum held in Munich, September 4th and 5th 2018.

“Huawei OceanConnect CEP Cloud is an operational connectivity management platform tuned to the unique requirements of telecommunications providers. It provides carrier grade capabilities, performance and scale to support the pivotal role that providers will play in enabling IoT connection+X services for their B2B and B2B2X customers. Including:

•Scale ready: Massive connection management, quick product launch, agile and efficient operation, and aggregating open ecosystem, so as to achieve B2B customer operation, fast service rollout, and high operational efficiency to support the rapid growth of IoT services.
•Cloud-based deployment: Flexible deployment options including public cloud which enables tailoring to carriers technological, cost optimization and service strategies.
•Enabling Telco to maximize the value of IoT connections: Business enablement services for enterprise customer, process flexibility and manageability to tailor to the requirements of different industries verticals, meeting enterprise customized service capabilities and providing open digital self-operation services.
•Over 40+ RESTful Open APIs to facilitate the integration and innovation of Telco and industry solution providers.

China Mobile one of the world’s largest operators, selected Huawei OceanConnect CEP Cloud to consolidate 31 China Mobile provincial systems into one platform supporting all their IoT B2B2X and vertical specific IoT services within China. China Mobile has leveraged the new platform to grow their IoT connections by over 100 million in under a year, and it now serving in excess of 300 million(1) IoT connections making it the largest Telco IoT platform in the world.

Huawei OceanConnect CEP Cloud has delivered step change in business agility, cost-to-serve and IT performance – enabling a differentiated China Mobile IoT experience and the growth of IoT services across China:

•Dramatic TTM improvements – which allow services to be launched to market in 5-7% of the previous time taken.
•Enabling explosive ecosystem growth – with currently more than 50,000 industrial partners operational on the platform.
•Significant cost reduction, driving from single optimized, agile processes and elimination of 31 provincial systems.
•Powering a near doubling(1) of IoT revenue from 2017 to 2018.

“China Mobile fully implements the ‘Big Connection’ strategy to create a wonderful smart interconnection life. The CM IoT operation platform jointly developed by Huawei provides a new engine for China Mobile’s digital transformation. Currently, the platform has accessed more than 50,000 industry customers with the number of IoT connections reached over 300 million. We are confident that we will work together with IoT ecosystem partners to create a new, smart, and interconnected life.” Said Xu Haiyong, General Manager of China Mobile Information Technology Co., Ltd.

“The continuous evolution of connection capability of Telcos will be the basis for IoT. The IoT operation platform and ecosystem are key success paths for the IoT digital world. By leveraging its business practices and technology accumulation in the communications industry, and with China Mobile’s innovative CM IoT project practice, Huawei Software has built the OceanConnect CEP Cloud with billions of connection and continuously improving connection efficiency and ecosystem capabilities, so as to make IoT a real development engine in Telco industry.“ Said Ali Shi, President of Huawei Software Business Unit.
