May 3, 2017 - At HANNOVER MESSE 2017, Huawei, a global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider and GE Digital, a software company for the Industrial Internet, jointly launched their Industrial Cloud-based Predictive Maintenance Solution. The solution integrates Huawei's Edge Computing IoT (EC-IoT) with GE's Industrial Internet cloud platform Predix to enable end-to-end connectivity between industrial assets and cloud applications, allowing real-time machine health monitoring, data analysis and perception, and smart maintenance decision-making.
Huawei and GE announced their strategic partnership in July 2016 and this joint solution is the latest achievement in their cooperation in the industrial IoT field. The solution integrates Huawei's EC-IoT gateways and Agile Controller, GE's Predix platform, other partners' sensors and controllers, and industrial applications to construct information channels between industrial networks and an interconnection platform.
The Industrial Predictive Maintenance Solution will be adopted by Schindler, an elevator and escalator provider. It will help Schindler centrally connect and manage its millions of elevators worldwide.
Huawei has been exploring the IoT field across many industries and proactively promoting ecosystem construction. Not only has it collaborated with GE in the industrial predictive maintenance field, but it has also worked on large-scale application deployments with other partners in various vertical industries including power, lighting, transport, and buildings, to accelerate digital transformation for customers.
