Huawei Unveils Wi-Fi 7 at APAN57: Elevating Education Network

Huawei today inspired the education sector to upgrade its infrastructure by unveiling its enterprise-class “AirEngine Wi-Fi 7”, the latest generation of Wi-Fi standards solutions that offers a smoother and more reliable wireless network in high-density, high-bandwidth, and low-latency use cases, such as when accessing the metaverse and utilizing Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality (AR/VR) for education.

“The trend in the education industry is now evolving from digitalization to intelligent infrastructure,” stated Mr. Sheldon Wang, Vice President of Enterprise Business Group, Huawei Technologies (Thailand) Co., Ltd. He went on to reveal during the 57th Asia-Pacific Advanced Network (APAN57) meeting that Huawei is fully committed to integrating ICT such as connectivity, cloud computing, big data, and artificial intelligence throughout the entire education process to promote innovation in teaching, scientific research, management, and services.

Based on technologies such as optical network and Wi-Fi 7, Huawei has integrated wired, wireless, office, and IoT networks to connect campus networks, education and research networks, and the Internet. This builds a single secure, stable, and intelligent network, improving the bearing capabilities of the service system as well as the user experience.

Teaching and learning activities today have shifted from using traditional blackboards to multimedia tools, from learning in a fixed location to anytime, anywhere, as well as from one-way lecturing to more student-centric learning. Scientific research too needs to solve complex computing and analytics tasks and relies more on technologies like high-performance computing (HPC), high-performance data analytics (HPDA), big data, and artificial intelligence, all of which require high-bandwidth and stable Wi-Fi solutions.

At the event, Huawei also revealed that it is preparing to bring knowledge and expertise from its global industry work to support the development of ICT infrastructure, which it sees as a key factor in the digital transformation of the education sector, along with key solutions such as “Intelligent Education” that will accelerate digital transformation that focuses on technology that supports research. Creating an intelligent environment for educational institutions and classrooms will help students be able to learn in a realistic way and promote better skill development, which includes the introduction of the latest technologies like “Wi-Fi 7” to enhance the capabilities of education through new wireless technology standards with wider channels and lower delay rates.

At the event, Huawei also organized a special forum “Thailand Medical Research HPDA Infrastructure Innovation Panel”, inviting experts from leading medical universities including Khon Kaen University (KKU), Siriraj Hospital, National Biobank of Thailand, and King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang to exchange ideas and preparedness guidelines to support the development of scientific and medical research. Huawei’s Scientific Research HPDA Solution adopts an ultra-high-density design — both in terms of capacity and performance — to make significant savings in equipment room space, bringing down the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

The seminar was led by Mr. Prayuth TungsaNgob, Huawei Thailand’s Chief Technology Officer of Enterprise Business, as well as executives and other important guests who are leaders in medical and research sectors from KKU, Siriraj Hospital, National Biobank of Thailand, and King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang.

Dr. Sissades Tongsima, Director of the National Biobank of Thailand, NSTDA, shared: “Some innovative technologies were developed during the COVID-19 pandemic, such as Bluetooth Stethoscopes, the implementation of which helped maintain social distance between doctors and patients. Many innovations also originated from co-development and collaboration”.

Associate Professor Anupol Panitchote, Project Manager of KKU Artificial Intelligence in Medicine and Health Sciences, added that high-quality data could lead to AI and Big Data development: “We need to store data in a format that we can utilize for a practical purpose. At present, institutions are now able to gather picture and VDO files of EMRs more easily, the efficient management of which could lead to better medical treatment.”

Prof. Manop Pithukpakorn, Siriraj Piyamaharajkarun Hospital, stated: “The strength of full-service medical treatment in Thailand is about medical service, treatment, and prevention. We can strengthen our leading position as a service provider by improving our service quality or utilizing technology for the treatment of complications and symptoms. We have a large database for precision medicine that is specialized for people from the region, including the entire CLMV (Cambodia, Lao, Myanmar, Vietnam) market, which can be utilized to connect DNA and health data to help differentiate our medical services”.

Associate Professor Dr. Prasert Trivijitsilp, Executive Vice President for Medicine and Health Technology, King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, also added: “The important challenge that we face now is how to drive collaboration between medical and other faculties to build an important data base for the future. King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang is focused on utilizing Wearable and AI technologies for Aging and Telehealth. The important thing is that we need to work together to build a useful data base that can be applied towards the technology of the future”.

Huawei also participated in the presentation of technology and innovations for education at APAN57, which was held under the theme “Leading Infrastructure to Accelerate Education Intelligence“, focusing on infrastructure upgrades to accelerate technology transformation that will support the next generation of education.

Huawei offers a range of solutions to support technology infrastructure upgrades, including the latest in wireless network standards, the Huawei Air-Engine Wi-Fi 7, which delivers high bandwidth and supports e-classrooms that can use HD video and audio for teaching. The Huawei Air-Engine Wi-Fi 7 delivers realistic interactivity in addition to technologies that can set a strong foundation to support the next generation of teaching and learning, such as Converged Campus Network and Scientific Research HPDA, which feature advanced computing and energy saving capabilities, ad well as environmental friendliness. Huawei plans to promote the industry holistically under the Digital Talent Ecosystem and will continue to cooperate with policymakers and partners to cultivate 50,000 talents in Thailand by 2027.
