Huawei and NXP Semiconductors announced plans to create an open platform for Industry 4.0 Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) during the Industry 4.0 Roundtable held at Hanover CeBIT 2015.

IHS predicts that by 2025, Industry 4.0 will connect over 80 billion devices to the Internet. China plans to invest $1.3 trillion over the next three years in modernising and transforming the nation's big manufacturing industry into "a powerful manufacturing country."

Global ICT solutions provider Huawei and NXP have entered a strategic partnership to further expand their business in the Chinese and global Industry 4.0 market. Huawei offers a wide range of ICT products and solutions including LTE-M technology and industrial Ethernet that coincide with the core value of Industry 4.0. Industry 4.0 includes IoT (Internet of Things) connections, security and device management and operations. Huawei provides customers applications such as automated production, energy utilisation optimisation, parts management, real-time fault diagnosis, and on-demand production.

Huawei and NXP will collaborate in the following areas: physical layer, network layer and cyber security. The partnership will fully integrate Huawei's ICT infrastructure and connectivity solutions and NXP's secure connectivity solutions for Industry 4.0. Collaboration will focus on Industry 4.0 applications such as factory automation, logistics, secure wireless connections, and sensor networks. The two companies will develop an Industry 4.0 networking solution that creates sustainable value for customers in China and potentially across the globe.

Huawei Marketing & Solutions President Patrick Zhang said ICT infrastructure remains Huawei's long-term business focus. Huawei's Industry 4.0 IoT platform, with LTE-M and IoT gateway as the core, focuses on delivering security and device management and operations. The ability to create value depends on the underlying chipsets, modules, and Lite OS. NXP, as Huawei's partner in chipset and secure connectivity solutions, will help both sides expand their Industry 4.0 business in the Chinese and global markets.
