The Chinese electronics giant Huawei is expected to announce an alliance with an unnamed third party to build a new internet of things hub, according to a new report.
The Huawei IoT Hubs project, which is still in the early stages, is reportedly expected to launch in the second half of 2018, and will aim to help IoT developers build the next generation of IoT hubs that will offer data, communications, security and control.
The partnership between Huawei and the unnamed third-party is expected in a number of ways.
The project is expected not only to build new internet-connected IoT hubs for developers but also to make them accessible to the public, potentially allowing developers to make IoT hubs from scratch.
Huawei is also expected to make the Huawei IoT IoT Hub available to developers in the United States.
This is the second IoT hub announced by Huawei in 2018.
The first IoT hub was announced at CES 2018.
The Huawei Hubs announcement comes after Huawei announced a partnership with the United Kingdom’s BAE Systems to develop and manufacture a “smart” drone that will enable drones to autonomously fly on public roads, including the streets of London.
