Huawei 3GPP 5G Pre-commercial System was awarded as one of the World Leading Internet Scientific and Technological Achievements at the fourth World Internet Conference opening on December 3. This award recognized the system’s capabilities and technical innovation. Huawei Rotating CEO Xu Zhijun attended the conference and showcased the product. Based on 3GPP standards and specifications, this award-winning system features multiple Huawei key technologies, products and end-to-end solutions in various fields, such as radio access networks (RANs), core networks (CNs), bearer networks, terminals and chips. The aim of the system is to expedite the development of the 5G industry chain and promote the digitization of the entire industry. “Huawei plans to launch a complete set of 5G network equipment solutions for large-scale global commercial deployment in 2018. At that time, mobile Internet will step into a new era where the connectivity of everything will promote the digital transformation of all industries. Huawei also expects to launch 5G Kirin chips and smart phones in 2019 to provide a superior 5G network experience as early as possible,” Xu said in his speech at the conference. Not only does 5G indicate a grand changeover in mobile communications, it is also a key enabler of the digital transformation of all industries, allowing everything to be sensing, connected and intelligent. Huawei is channeling its efforts toward the study of 5G technical specifications, making early and extensive preparations. Back in 2009, Huawei invested over $600 million on 5G technical research and innovation. This was before the initiation of 5G technical standardization. Polar code and filtered orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (F-OFDM) waveform proposed by Huawei are now part of the foundation and key of the global 5G standards. Huawei has completed a wide range of interoperability tests for the 3GPP 5G Pre-commercial System with domestic and international meter vendors, terminal manufacturers and telecom operators. The system’s performance has set multiple new records. This pre-commercial system has been deployed by over 30 operators in areas with the most well-developed information industry on a global scale. In addition, Huawei has taken the lead in setting up 5G Automobile Association and Smart Manufacturing Alliance, while actively promoting cross-industry cooperation in smart grids, low-altitude drones and wireless eHealth.
