Huawei's car network I know
Huawei, a name that makes Chinese people proud, is a globally representative and great company. In 2015, revenue was 288.2 billion, and revenue in 2016 was 520 billion, which is equivalent to Wanda Vanke. In the field of car networking, they are the earliest in the industry. Until now, they have not been idle. This piece is not good, and it will always be a face.
First, the germination of Huawei's car networking
I am honored to have served Huawei and recorded the history of Huawei's car networking. The first e-mail was October 30, 2013. Huawei purchased the EST711 car ECU simulator from the VR, and we included some OBD modules for testing and development. In order to protect privacy, I put some information on the mail mosaic. In the following months, the technical interconnection with Huawei's car networking department was done. Although there was no agreement on the source code, the project was smooth and maintained long-term mail communication.
The next day, on November 1, 2013, the communications industry's large-scale Ximentong hardware module R&D department also requested information on OBD related modules. We also provided related technical docking and debugging. Looking back now, did they open a meeting together, or participated in a large-scale forum, and collective research decided to intervene in this field and carry out research related to car networking. In Yuan Fang’s view, this is a bit embarrassing.
Second, the development of Huawei's car networking
Subsequently, on December 11, 2013, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued a 4G license, and Huawei released its own ME909T vehicle module, marking Huawei's entry into the Internet of Vehicles. With the advantage of Huawei in the field of communication, it has brought great fortune to the industry, and also gave other competitors in the industry a new position in the automotive field. The blurred 150 million market of the Internet of Vehicles was opened by the media, attracting OEMs, TSP operators, service operators, network operators and equipment suppliers like us to actively join, and the entire industry of the Internet of Vehicles has entered a slogan.
At that time, it was 14 years. Huawei did not study the various sensors of the car in depth. It has always been considered how to use so much data. They built their own in-vehicle systems and also made a car networking platform. According to Mr. Cao, the sales director of Gangneung Automobile, Huawei has built a vehicle-mounted central control system for a car manufacturer. The development cost of 20 million yuan has been included in the bag. In 15 years, we have seen this car system, which should be a deeply customized car Linux system. There are still friends who laughed. If the system is outsourced, 3 million can get it. We laughed and laughed. We didn't do it. I don't know the depth of the water.
According to the original idea, Huawei believes that a single module may not be enough to serve the industry, so it has also built its own car networking system. As early as Huawei, Ericsson, ZTE, and Siemens have already entered this field. Take Nokia as an example. They have established cooperative relationships with major auto manufacturers, providing information services and auto-driving to different brands. The performance of the new sector has grown. Then, the Threadof the promotion of Huawei and Simtong was relatively slow. At the end of the 14th year, Longshang also joined the ranks. The car networking industry is of great significance, but it is cold and hot, and it is necessary to lift this emerging market. Indeed, it requires a lot of industry to join and support. The media and startups have invested a lot of energy in the Internet of Vehicles market, and finally got a bunch of regrets.
Third, Huawei's car network faces melee
Later, it attracted a large number of giants to join, including Apple, Google, Tencent, etc., the Internet of Wars and melee have started from this moment, some based on OBD data, some based on the services behind the data, some are pure entertainment . Since there is no standardization, service and product standardization in communication, slowly, from 2015, this market has gradually cooled down, and since then, it has been a holy place for small business players. Some use smart transportation to make fuss, some use smart cities to make fuss, some take O2O to make a fuss, and finally find out that in addition to companies with rising stocks, other basics have not realized profit in this field, and too many companies burn money. There are too few companies jumping in the pit, the whole industry is mixed, and the cost of trial and error is getting higher and higher.
In the middle of the 14th year, according to ignorance media reports, the industry has reached 3,000 companies in this sector, the company's threshold has also been flattened, too many customers, psychologically more uneasy. Things are always the opposite, and those who come quickly are generally going fast. From a global perspective, we can't fight against the 2,999 people and start their own transformation. Generally speaking, in September 2014, we used a lot of technology precipitation to make a good transformation in the BMW project. This is not a talk, and writing this article is a living testimony! Huawei, after they built their own car networking system, built a multi-faceted practice of cloud computing and big data, and performed well in scalability and flexibility. The decoupled architecture provides a standard API interface for upper-layer applications. In order to shield the differences between data and commands of different models, the development of upper-layer applications becomes simple, the T-BOX access of different manufacturers becomes simple, and new services can be deployed quickly. We are fortunate to be with Huawei TBOX. In the face of competition from Japanese and Korean companies such as Bosch, Continental, Harman, Denso and LG, the pressure may not be too great.
Fourth, Huawei's car network brings us thinking
Many friends have already favored 4G, just as it is said that 5G is so good. The 2G network that has dominated the world for more than 20 years is beginning to be stretched, and 3G products are also facing a transition. Huawei recently communicated with us about remote control of cars based on 5G networks. We have two kinds of guesses. One is to understand how car control is implemented, how to implement the remote control method and process of the car; secondly, look at the commercial application of the area covered by the application. The previous article mentioned the data between Alibaba and SAIC. Huawei may also encounter such awkwardness. After all, the commercial applications of making money are all implemented, and the general purpose of brushing your face is to raise awareness. My Taiwanese friends have repeatedly warned on several occasions that Taiwan’s money-making enterprises have basically not gone public, and they are counting money silently. If TSMC does not need to purchase the 500 billion equipment, it needs financing. There is no need to go public. Huawei also has Such a urine. Later, Ma and Harman both had technical and commercial contacts with us. Although the transaction was not a large number, they did not go deep into our field and finally got a good night's sleep.
Say yourself, in fact, our transformation took two years, three months and eight days, and gradually embarked on the road of internationalization, recognizing that the future needs to know ourselves and know each other. Although we have our own ARM9 (4G) + linux infrastructure TBOX, it has basically covered most of the business needs of the domestic car networking industry, but because I grew up in a small rural area, I have never seen any foreign currency, I want to see the world. Innovative + international is our key word for 2017, like cutting amaranth, cutting this wave of technology dividends.
V. Supplement to Huawei's car network
Recently, Huawei's news includes: Huawei and Qiming Information jointly built a car networking platform, signed a cooperation agreement with Changan, LTE technology was launched in the Chongqing demonstration zone, providing programs for FAW Group, etc., searching for it by yourself, I am not typing fast. However, Huawei’s subsidiary in Suzhou began to develop charging piles...
Huawei's car network is so overwhelmed by me? In fact, I would like to add some, Huawei has mastered the cutting-edge communication technology, behind the investment in storm video, VR, charging piles, education and other fields, I have not understood, or the field of the car, has been relatively mature program. The issuance of 5G licenses may further accelerate their network communication. Applications such as smart car brain, 3D live navigation, full-range traffic monitoring, road safety and automatic driving, etc., things that were previously impossible to do, will become the future everywhere. You can see their logo, just like the Huawei mobile phone on the street.
As the leader of the communications industry, Huawei has blurred its business boundaries, providing good services, benefiting the society, improving the industry, and benefiting users. The world will praise him.
