Abstract:

BEIJING — China’s Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, the world’s biggest telecommunications equipment maker, on Wednesday became the latest tech giant to present its own take on the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT), centred on an operating system designed to allow household and business appliances to communicate with each other online.

At an event in Beijing, Huawei executives showcased its “Agile IoT” architecture, including an operating system called LiteOS to control basic devices.

Huawei executives touted Agile architecture as a free and open standard that would allow hardware designers to easily make connectable devices.

LiteOS will run on Huawei's newly announced Agile Network 3.0 Architecture and the company hopes that by promoting a standard infrastructure, it will be able to push the development of internet and IoT applications.

Hardware running Liteos can be controlled remotely, or collect data. In addition, the operating system can be installed on devices already running Google's Android OS, and it can connect with other third-party devices.

Huawei's latest expansion comes at a time when consumer-oriented firms such as Xiaomi Inc and Apple Inc, anticipating an explosion of Internet-connected home appliances and consumer devices, have sought to build ecosystems around their popular handsets.

Instead of diverging into the production of appliances, Huawei has come up with this breakthrough idea to bridge the communication gap between the systems.

In accordance with a report published by The Financial Times, William Xu, Huaweis head of strategy and marketing, also cleared that the company is no way in the race to compete with Operating Systems like Android or iOS, instead it is simply focusing on powering a range of gadgets.

Huawei hopes that the operating system will be used in a range of consumer, business and enterprise products, but quite what direction things will be taken in is really down to developers.
