MWC23 Highlights and Electric Power: Paving a Digital Road for the New Power System

It's been 1 month since Mobile World Congress Barcelona 2023. Nearly 90,000 people attended in person plus many more via the online feeds.

As announced in our Pre-MWC23 video, I caught up with Edwin Diender, CIO Electric Power Digitalization Business Unit, Huawei Enterprise Business Group to discuss his MWC23 highlights.

We spoke about:

➡️ Edwin MWC23 highlights (01:23 - 07:50)

➡️ Are face-to-face events still important? (07:51 - 14:25)

➡️ Updates from the Electric Power department (14:26 - 21:50)

Huawei says is committed to becoming the best transition partner for the global electric power industry. Laying a digital platform and establishing an ecosystem of industry partners — a strategy coined as platform + ecosystem — Huawei integrates innovative Information Communications Technology (ICT) and digital power platforms with best industry practices to build its solution system for the electric power industry.

During our chat, Edwin shared a few of their electric power solutions:

Solution 1: Intelligent Wind Power Network

End-to-end network connections for wind farm, step-up substation, O&M

centers, implementing unmanned and intelligent wind power inspection.

Solution 2: Intelligent Substation Inspection

Innovative IT technologies are integrated with OT systems to implement multi-dimensional,

real-time sensing of devices and environments of substations.

Solution 3: Power Distribution IoT

Based on the industry's specific hardware platform and software app architecture,to

implement flexible access for various services and ensure power grid security.

Solution 4: Electric Power Wireless Campus Network

Using loT, Wi-Fi 6, SD-WAN, and Al technologies, build a secure, reliable, and smart 0&M campus network.

If you want to know more about how Electric Power moves further, I suggest watching the "Electric Power | Find the Right Technologies to Power Global Energy Transition session" led by Edwin during MWC23

Speakers included:

  • Nikos Hatziargyriou,Professor of National Technical University of Athens

  • Zhou Haojie, COO Electric Power Digitalization Business Unit Huawei

  • Darmawan Prasodjo, CEO PT PLN

  • Dimitrios Zografos, Director, ASset Management, IPTO

  • José Said Flores Alonso, Director, CFE Telecom

Discovering more examples of how technology and innovation can help society be more efficient and productive.

Let’s continue building the right partnerships around the globe, because as I always say, together we are stronger.
