With Asia-Pacific leading the world in terms of 5G deployment, Huawei announced that it has secured over 50 5G commercial contracts worldwide and shipped over 200,000 Massive MIMO AAUs.
With experience in 5G pilot commercial use and active exploration of 5G innovative applications, Huawei said it is committed to “providing the safest and most advanced 5G products and solutions, as well as application scenarios.”
Huawei eyes to enable carriers in the Asia-Pacific region to deploy 5G faster and fully leverage the advantages of 5G. The aim is to empower numerous industries, improve social efficiency and accelerate industrial digitization.
South Korea is the world’s first country that has realized large-scale commercial use of 5G. Since the rollout of 5G in early April, the number of 5G subscribers in this country exceeded two million. South Korea has become the global benchmark for the commercial use of 5G. China has built a large-scale 5G network for pilot commercial use. The three major carriers have deployed 5G networks in cities including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, and Chengdu. The tested downlink rate is as high as 1 Gbps, which means it takes only seconds to download an HD movie in 1080P.
“5G is becoming a reality. Around the world, 35 carriers in 20 countries have launched 5G and 33 other countries have distributed 5G spectrum,” Huawei stated in a press statement.
According to William Xu, Huawei Director of the Board, President of the Institute of Strategic Research: “5G is arriving at the right time. More specifically, 5G can provide wide coverage, large bandwidth, and low latency on the basis of traditional connections. It can also provide slicing for different applications. This new feature makes it adaptable to a variety of complex industrial applications. With the advancement of 5G, there will be many 5G-enabled applications that will change the world. At the same time, 5G, AI, IoT and cloud are improving everyday life and nature, making the world a better place.”
