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.

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.
