Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology solutions provider, is showing its readiness to support emerging Thai entrepreneurs by participating in this year's edition of Startup Thailand, held at the Queen Sirikit Convention Centre in Bangkok. Huawei will fully support Thai startups by providing technological support including consulting services with in-house experts.

During the event, Huawei highlights its 3 innovative solutions. The company will award the winners of the Startup Thailand Pitching Challenge with a 3-day Technology Innovation Trip to the company's headquarters in Shenzhen, China.

Huawei continues to boost its investment in Thailand through the recently-launched Open Lab Bangkok, worth over 500 million Baht, aiming to encourage its industry partners and local startups.

All these facilities will assist Huawei partners and startups to test and speed up innovations, which will further enable sustainable business growth.

"We will give our 100% support to startups and established businesses so they can create, innovate and search for unique and bold solutions to help accelerate the Thai government's quest to accompany Thailand to digital era and become the region's digital hub," said Mr. Robin Lu, Vice President of Enterprise Business Group, Huawei Southeast Asia. "We at Huawei believe that startups are the future, and are aware of the role they can play to make a more vibrant and connected world."

During the Startup Thailand 2017, Huawei highlighted three innovative solutions that perfectly showcase the company's potential through constant collaboration with global partners.
• Smart Airport Solution

This solution improves the efficiency of airport operations through location-based services and Geographical Information Systems (GIS). The smart airport system enables centralized data management that would improve flight punctuality rate, security protection, luggage

information transfer, vehicle management and wireless video and image during emergencies. All this can be shown via a dashboard.

Moreover, another solution can enhance passenger experience by providing useful information such as flight schedules, boarding times, distances and directions to check-in counters, toilets, first-aid rooms and others.

• Power IoT Solution

The Unified Networking Platform is a pool of innovative applications used in various industries to support Internet of Things (IoT) such as wireless connectivity platform, PLC (Power Line Communication), Radio Frequency (RF), GPRS/3G/4G and GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network).

Huawei also uses IoT for smart street lights system that will enable a city to have on-demand lighting that will reduce energy consumption. It will also enable the automatic collection of household electricity consumption data that will replace traditional ways of collecting data and allow the planning of electricity consumption in the future.

• Digital Banking Solution

Huawei also showcases a Real Time Anti-Fraud Operating Management Platform which offers high potential in real-time data analysis technology and reduces risks in financial fraud. This platform was created to monitor transactions with the use of Geolocation technology, which offers ATM tracking functions. With its global partners, Huawei has developed Big Data and Hadoop which can work on Huawei's ICT infrastructure platform.

The Challenge is also held to emphasize the important role that small, young enterprises could play to help Thailand become the digital hub of ASEAN.
