Huawei Announces 5G-A Industry and Technology Evolution Direction to Promote Shared Success

During MWC Shanghai 2024, GSMA hosted the 5G-A Industry Roundtable to bring together global regulators, operators, equipment vendors, research institutes, and vertical industry leaders. Participants shared their network construction and application achievements during the evolution from 5G to 5G-Advanced (5G-A) and dug into 5G-A business monetization and strategic development.

David Li, President of Huawei’s 5G<E TDD Domain, said during the meeting, “The commercial launch of 5G-A in 2024 in the context of booming AI presents the mobile sector with a fresh opportunity. Huawei has consistently innovated in four core technologies to build green, seamless 5G-A connections that provide always-on services. Looking forward, we will continue to work closely with global partners to leverage the deterministic network capabilities to embrace infinite possibilities brought by the flourishing applications in the AI era.”

During this meeting, representatives from world-leading operators, such as China Unicom Beijing, China Mobile Yunnan, and du UAE, shared their experience in 5G and 5G-A network construction and business monetization. For example, more advanced network capabilities can bring diverse mobile applications, making it possible to provide a differentiated user experience that is key to multi-dimensional 5G-A monetization. Besides, high-quality 5G networks are the cornerstone of 5G-A deployment. Enhancing 5G capabilities in residential areas, high-speed railways, as well as urban and rural areas can help establish a multi-functional 5G-A network. Additionally, end-to-end smart operations empower operators to gain comprehensive insights into network issues, self-healing, and optimization, maximizing network efficiency and improving user experience.

Industry partners including GSMA and Omdia mentioned that 5G business growth is speeding up and the time has come for 5G-A deployment. Specifically, the large-scale deployment of the 3CC technology helps achieve 5 Gbps network speed, which is perfect for immersive experiences of games, sports events, as well as audio and video entertainment. Moreover, the entire 5G-A industry chain is mature, with U6G, mmWave, and other new spectrum resources being distributed to some operators for verification. More than 30 types of terminals in the globe support 5G-A, and over 60 operators have commercially released 5G-A. Consequently, the entire industry chain needs to work together to build more efficient, intelligent, and reliable networks and applications to seize the opportunities brought by AI.

At the roundtable, Huawei officially announced the evolution direction of industry technologies from 5G to 5G-A, that is, moving towards greener mobile networks that feature more connections and a more deterministic experience through long-term innovation of the 3D extremely large antenna array (ELAA) technology, differentiated experiences, full-time all-scenario green solutions, and AI-empowered networks.

AI is rapidly reaching to PCs, mobile phones, wearables, and vehicle-mounted systems, bringing about massive connected objects, rich content, and varied user traffic models. This poses higher requirements on network capabilities while creating opportunities for new services, superior network quality, and enhanced O&M. To embrace new opportunities in the era, Huawei calls for industry-wide collaboration to promote shared success in the 5G-A industry.

MWC Shanghai 2024 will be held from June 26 to June 28 in Shanghai, China. During the event, Huawei will showcase its latest products and solutions at stands E10 and E50 in Hall N1 of Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC).

2024 will see the commercial launch of 5.5G, while F5.5G, marked by gigabit optical networks, is already underway. Synergy across networks, cloud, and intelligence is diversifying user experience and making intelligent applications pervasive. Together with global operators, industry professionals, and opinion leaders, we dive into topics such as amplifying 5G’s success in the 5.5G era, tapping the potential to grow operator revenues, and speeding up towards an intelligent world. 

Information is one of the most important organization assets. For an organization, information is valuable and should be appropriately protected. Security is to combine systems, operations and internal controls to ensure integrity and confidentiality of data and operation procedures in an organization.
