It may be having issues particularly with the US right now, but Huawei – as a company – is continuing to make a splash. Huawei’s 5G intelligent and simplified core network solution won the “Best 5G Core Network Technology” Award at the 5G World Summit 2019 in London in the UK.
5G is set to transform whole industries and promote new applications and business models. The 5G core network is the hub for building ubiquitous connectivity and scheduling network resources. It connects things in addition to people and provides differentiated and deterministic network service capabilities. This enables 5G to better serve the industrial Internet and industry digitalization.
Huawei’s 5G intelligent and simplified core network supports all-cloud-based key technologies such as three-layer decoupling, stateless design, cross-DC deployment, microservices, and A/B test. The network is built on leading cloud native, connectivity+, and edge computing technologies and is the industry’s first core network to support 2G/3G/4G/5G NSA/5G SA in-depth convergence. It provides the Single Voice Core simplified voice solution and CUPS-based distributed architecture. Based on CUPS, it supports one-stop user plane plug and play, on-demand scheduling of heterogeneous edge computing resources, fast integration of third-party applications, and building of an open edge ecosystem, providing differentiated services and enabling thousands of industries.
Ma Liang, director of the Huawei’s Cloud Core Network Product Mgmt. Dept., said: “Huawei has continuously invested in 5G core network R&D to gain industry leading expertise in 5G technology. We collaborate with carriers and industry partners to continuously develop 5G applications in vertical industries, enable a thriving industry ecosystem, and make full preparation for the mature commercial use of 5G.”
As of June 2019, Huawei has won 46 commercial 5G contracts globally, and has launched a series of cross-industry collaborations based on network slicing and MEC in smart grid, VR/AR, IoV, remote surgery, smart manufacturing, and other fields, greatly expanding the 5G global ecosystem. Huawei is committed to advancing this technology to better serve our customers with state-of-the-art solutions.
