BARCELONA -- China Telecom and Huawei have established a Business Joint Innovation Center (BJIC) to jointly develop differential, innovative products and solutions that will offer users information and communication services.

The BJIC model has transformed the traditional industry partnership. Both companies invest in joint development, verification, and go-to-market of products and solutions to accelerate provisioning of new products and achieve shared success. This a breakthrough in the history of telecom industry cooperation.

Yang Jie, Chairman of China Telecom, said at the launch event: "China Telecom is committed to becoming a leading integrated intelligent information service operator. We will work with partners from all industries to build Rubik's cube-style industry ecosystems, in which we can share and create value together for shared success. The BJIC is a useful and important example of win-win cooperation based on the Rubik's cube-style industry ecosystem. The goals of the center include business model innovation, quick subscriber base growth and quick service monetization."

Eric Xu, Huawei's rotating CEO, stated: "China Telecom and Huawei have transformed their traditional cooperation model into an innovative, constructive, comprehensive and future-oriented one. eCloud, which is now in a mature stage of development, is a good example of our collaboration. We have shifted from the old equipment-selling partnership to a new cooperation model centered around joint business innovation. This is why we launched our BJIC today."

Gao Tongqing, Executive Vice President of China Telecom, gave a general introduction to the BJIC and China Telecom's Transformation 3.0 strategy at the Barcelona launch event. He explained the direction of the cooperation centered around Rubik's cube-style industry ecosystems. “By aligning strategies, combining strengths and complementing advantages, China Telecom and Huawei will execute their strategies, build a new type of partnership, and achieve shared success based on the BJIC,” said Gao. “The initial stages of the joint innovation will focus on the four domains of Smart Home, cloud-and-network integration, IoT, and 5G. The cooperation between the two companies will expand to include more domains as industry needs and technologies evolve.”

At the launch event, China Telecom and Huawei showcased three innovative outcomes of recent cooperation, including Video 3.0, eCloud, and all-optical networks. For IPTV services, Video 3.0 ensures the best experience including fast channel change, VOD smooth play, a nine-screen guide, a four-screen view, voice search, and personal TV recommendations.
