Huawei announced at Product and Solution launch in London that it has been awarded 91 commercial 5G contracts and shipped over 600,000 5G Massive MIMO Active Antenna Units (AAUs).
As a leading global 5G supplier, Huawei is committed to developing end-to-end 5G solutions. This includes the industry’s highest-performance 5G base station that supports all scenarios and the Blade AAU with the industry’s highest level of integration. The Blade AAU can work under all sub-6 GHz frequency bands and support 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G networks.
Ryan Ding, Executive Director of the Board and President of Huawei’s Carrier BG released Huawei’s new 5G products and solutions and launched the 5G Partner Innovation Program. These efforts aim to build a thriving 5G ecosystem and make 5G a commercial success.
At the launch event, Ryan Ding showed the audience Huawei’s recently-released live broadcast backpack. This backpack, embedded with a 5G module, makes live broadcasting far easier.
Ding emphasized that in the 5G era, operators can provide differentiated experiences and charge users based on data volume, latency, bandwidth and number of devices connected.
The company also showcased a series of product solutions, such as the simplified radio access network (RAN), smart IP network, ultra-high-bandwidth transport network, green connections and AI-enabled end-to-end 5G services.
The simplified RAN features three product solutions: the industry’s lightest 3rd-generation Massive MIMO antenna; the Blade AAU with the industry’s highest level of integration; and a 400 MHz ultra-wideband AAU. Smart IP network leads the industry in supporting committable SLA. With FlexE-based flexible network slicing, the smart IP network boasts the industry’s highest slicing precision, at 1 Gbps.
Ultra-high-bandwidth transport network provides a transmission capacity of 48 Tbps on a single optical fiber, 40% higher than the industry average. This will ensure the transport network can evolve smoothly over the next 10 years.
At the event, Ryan Ding launched the 5G Partner Innovation Program where Huawei plans to invest $20 million into innovative 5G applications over the next 5 years, contributing to a thriving 5G ecosystem and accelerating the commercial success of 5G.
