Chinese telecommunications company Huawei has of course considerably expanded its horizons beyond ‘pure teclo’… and indeed even the physical manufacturing of networking equipment.

The firm now plans to enter the Internet of Things driven smart home space.

Fishing for chipsets

Huawei will refine its approach to producing both hardware and software here — it says it plans to develop only the software and the core chipset that will power the devices.

HiLink platform will focus on web-connected home devices like washing machines and refrigerators.

A dedicated HiLink Software Development Kit (SDK) will be arrive towards the end of 2016 with the ‘LiteOS’ operating system.
