Dhaka: The first Southeast Asia IP Club Carnival organised by Huawei begins today at Bangkok in Thailand. It is bringing together around 400 IP Club members, industrial and academic experts and IP technical professionals from Bangladesh, Thailand, Hong Kong, India, Cambodia and Vietnam.

The two-day long event, from May 30-31, is based on the theme "Rethink IP, Building the Engine for Digital Transformation”.

These tech-savvy participants are exploring how to leverage innovative IP technologies in an effort to promote industrial upgrading and accelerate digital transformation across industries in Southeast Asia.

At this event, Huawei spokespersons are also elaborating on the IP Club membership benefits for the Southeast Asia region for the first time. This move has marked another milestone to build IP Club into a professional, open, trustworthy and respectful IP technology communication platform.

Michael MacDonald, Chief Digital Officer and Executive Consultant of Huawei Southeast Asia, said, “Huawei plays a pivotal role in industry fields such as Wi-Fi 6, AI Fabric, and SRv6, achieves market leadership and makes outstanding contributions to the industry due to continuous innovation and R&D investment. Huawei would continue to increase R&D investment and provide leading intelligent IP network solutions in order to build a next-generation intelligent connectivity base for the upcoming intelligent society.”

Also, Rohit Mehra, Vice President of Network Infrastructure, IDC, stated that the network is central to the secure, scalable and efficient use of emerging applications and that network transformation is urgent because traditional networks no longer keep pace with digital transformation. He has also predicted that future intelligent networks would continue to evolve towards autonomous, self-driven automated ones.

Dr. Osama Aboul-Magd, Chair of the IEEE 802.11ax (the sixth generation of Wi-Fi) task group, shared the latest Wi-Fi 6 standard evolution trends and Huawei's contribution to the Wi-Fi 6 standardisation.

Dr. Li Xing, Vice President of the Campus Network Domain, Huawei's Data Communications Product Line, then released the industry's first commercial Wi-Fi 6 – P7060DN.

In the future, Huawei's IP Domain will deliver more technologies and resources to better serve the Southeast Asia market. Through close collaboration, Huawei and its partners will provide more intelligent connections for enterprise customers. In addition, Huawei will continue to use the Digital Platform to integrate new ICT, helping customers to succeed in digital transformation and march towards a fully connected, intelligent world.
