A partnership between two major Chinese telecommunications companies, Huawei and Huawei China, will see IoT devices and IoT services introduced into DHL’s network by 2020.
The news comes via Huawei’s website and the company’s blog.
Huawei-Chinese telecoms giant Huawei has partnered with DCHL, China’s national carrier, to roll out IoT connectivity in DHL services, including DHL Express and DHL Cloud, in 2019.
Huawei has said the IoT-enabled DHL platform will enable IoT devices to connect to the internet and become “an integral part of our daily life”.
Huawei has also stated that it has a long-term plan for IoT.
Huawei is the largest manufacturer of IoT devices in China.
The Chinese company also recently launched a new product line with DAL, the world’s second-largest network operator, and a new partnership with the German-based Tierngebiet, a major German IT services provider.
The Tierngericht service provider, which has around 150 employees, is responsible for the delivery of IoT services in Germany and across Europe.
The service provider is owned by Deutsche Telekom, the largest telecommunications operator in Germany.
The DHL partnership has been praised by many IoT experts as a major step forward in the IoT sector.
“This is an excellent example of Huawei’s leadership in IoT technology and a strong foundation for further IoT investments across DHL,” said Chris Molloy, a senior product manager at IoT company Logitech.
“The Huawei-IoTs partnership is an example of how Huawei is working with DCL to support the IoT development ecosystem and provides a new way for IoT consumers to connect and interact with their IoT devices.”
Huawei-DHL will also enable DHL to provide its customers with access to the IoT ecosystem through the DHL app, which enables the IoT customer to connect directly to the DCL network.
In addition, Huawei will also be able to offer DHL products in the Huawei Cloud, which provides customers with cloud-based services for IoT devices.
The partnership will see Huawei-branded IoT products and services on the DCHC network.
“DHL Express is a unique IoT product that has become the go-to IoT product for customers,” said DHL Global CEO James Riddell.
“We are pleased that Huawei has chosen to partner with us on this innovative platform and we look forward to working with Huawei and DCHLT to make Huawei-V4 and Huawei IoT a reality.”
“We believe that this collaboration will deliver high-quality and affordable IoT solutions that will enable Huawei-to-DCHLT IoT customers to connect their IoT device to the cloud,” said James Buehler, chief strategy officer at Huawei-Shenzhen.
“By supporting Huawei-ToDCHL IoT customers with our Cloud, Huawei-XG IoT device will be able seamlessly integrate with DDL Express and become an IoT device in the cloud.”
DHL CEO Chris Melloy also commented on the Huawei partnership.
“Huawei-toDCHLG IoT is a new and exciting opportunity for Huawei-owned DHL in the world of IoT,” he said.
“As part of this partnership, Huawei is bringing its high-performance IoT solutions to DHL, enabling them to bring DHL IoT to the people.
The Huawei-UEE IoT is an IoT solution for the IoT, enabling the IoT customers across the globe to connect, interact and share IoT devices with one another.”
Huawei also announced that it will be partnering with DSHG in 2019 to develop the first Huawei-controlled IoT system in the Shenzhen area.
The Shenzhen-based manufacturer of automotive parts, sensor solutions and automotive-enabled appliances, will develop and manage the system for the first time in Shenzhen.
Huawei will operate the Huawei IoT-based system in Shenyang, and will provide service to the local Huawei customers through Huawei IoT cloud solutions.
Huawei, Huawei China and DSHL are jointly investing in IoT and connected home solutions through the Huawei and UEE IoT networks.
“When it comes to IoT, we have a lot of different solutions that can be connected to the same IoT system,” said Huawei CEO James Bueshler.
“But the real problem is not only connectivity.
It is also the connectivity, because IoT is not just about connectivity.
We have to be connected with our customers in order to do it.
We are a very connected nation, but we still have a long way to go.
It will be a great journey for the future of IoT.”
Huawei will announce further IoT partnership announcements in the coming weeks.
