Calling services make up the most important and most basic core services for operators, providing both indispensable business and social value. New Calling embeds ultra-HD, intelligent, and interactive capabilities in operators' calling services. This helps both individuals and enterprises improve communication efficiency and upgrade calling experiences. Additionally, it adds greater value to the native call screen and injects new vitality into the development of 5G.

Over the past year, Chinese operators, together with Huawei and other partners, have developed multiple innovative New Calling services, such as visualized voice calling, fun calling, real-time translation, remote damage assessment, and interactive menu, bringing users brand-new communication experiences. At present, these operators have selected beta users to trial these services. Furthermore, GSMA has established a Foundry project to promote the development of New Calling. Although considerable efforts have been made, there are still many hurdles to overcome before the commercial use of New Calling. To achieve business success, all parties need to reach a common consensus and strengthen cooperation in the development of terminals, industry standards, service experiences, and application ecosystems.

This initiative calls upon global operators, network suppliers, terminal vendors, and industry partners to exchange thoughts, explore business models, promote network interconnection, develop standards for terminals and applications, and build a sound industry ecosystem. By doing these, New Calling can grow and create more value for users.

Chen Haiyong, President of the CS&IMS Domain of Huawei Cloud Core Network Product Line, said, "New Calling will bring tremendous opportunities to operators, and the value of the native call screen will be significantly intensified. We hope that more partners group together to build the New Calling ecosystem, so as to catalyze the development of this new industry and create a win-win future."

It is certain that New Calling will give rise to brand-new communication experiences and spur service innovation in the communications field. Huawei will continue to work with partners to enhance calling capabilities, optimize user experiences, develop high-quality applications, and promote the commercial use of services, thereby heralding a new dawn for the voice industry.
