Huawei launches LiteOS to take on ‘Internet of Things’


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', centered 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. This marks the firm's most significant push into a sector that has lured heavyweights from Google Inc to Intel Corp and IBM into pushing their own standards and communication protocols.

在北京召开的HNC2015网络大会上,华为高管展示了Agile IoT体系,包括一个控制基本设备、名为LiteOS的操作系统。这是华为向物联网领域迈出的最重要一步,物联网已吸引了谷歌、英特尔和国际商用机器公司等重量级企业投身入各自的相关标准和通讯协议。

Huawei executives touted Agile architecture as a free and open standard that would allow hardware designers to easily make connectable devices. Aside from its operating system, Huawei also showed off fully customizable wireless equipment that could be installed in business settings.


"Standardizing infrastructure will foster the development of Internet applications, including 'IoT' applications," said Huawei's chief strategy and marketing officer William Xu.


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.


Last month, Tencent Holdings Ltd unveiled its own operating system for Internet-connected devices such as TVs and watches that is open to all developers, taking on domestic rivals Alibaba Group Holding Ltd, JD.com Inc and Xiaomi Inc in the smart hardware space.
