Telecoms giant Huawei has demonstrated its capabilities winning awards for its products at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.
Huawei won awards for 5G Telemedicine Solution Wins the GSMA GLOMO ‘Best Innovation for COVID-19 Pandemic Response & Recovery’, Huawei RuralStar Pro Solution Awarded “Best Mobile Innovation for Emerging Markets” of GSMA GLOMO and Rainforest Connection and Huawei’s “Nature Guardian” Project Wins GSMA GLOMO for Outstanding Mobile Contribution to the UN SDGs.
Speaking at the event, Ryan Ding, President of Carrier Business Group, Huawei pointed out that 5G — an area where Huawei is a leading player — is currently demonstrating its potential in several markets across the globe, and added the need for more innovation in the space.
Ding highlighted the progress of 5G technology in China and South Korea. Several research carried out by Huawei showed that the 5G technology is already 20-times faster than 4G, with subscribers hitting 390 million in its home market.
Between 2021 and 2025, Ding added the combination of ICT and 5G digital infrastructure will drive economic growth of €1.9 trillion in China and €130 billion in South Korea, numbers proving operators were becoming drivers for national economies.
“We still need continued 5G innovation, we still need to grow our system tremendously, coordinate telecoms standards and integrate 5G into our core production process,” he further stated that the “5G innovation is an ongoing process and this is just the beginning.”
The highlight of the event was the Huawei grand launch of a series of 5G products and solutions to promote multi-antenna technology to all bands and all scenarios to build leading 5G networks.
Supercharged by industry leading innovation, these newly released products and solutions are distinct .
They include Industry’s Lightest 64T64R Massive MIMO, BladeAAU Pro, Industry’s only 64T A+P Solution, BladeRRU Pro, Industry’s Only RF Unit that supports three low and three medium bands, and Industry’s Only Commercial FDD Massive MIMO.
Yang Chaobin, President of Huawei Wireless Product Line, said: “We aim to support operators to efficiently deploy 5G networks and provide first-rate experience. Huawei will work with global partners to innovate and share 5G benefits with all.”
Huawei’s 5G prowess won several awards, including the ‘Best Mobile Network Infrastructure’ award at the Global Mobile (GLOMO) Awards for its BladeAAU product. Huawei launched the industry’s first BladeAAU product in 2019 to help operators overcome deployment challenges relating to the insufficient antenna space.
The judges expressed enormous delight for the Huawei for BladeAAU series and stated: “This stands out as a vital enabler for operators deploying 5G, ensuring support for commercially important spectrum in the years to come.”
