Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd today wraps up its four-day exhibition at the Mobile World Congress 2019 (MWC19) in Barcelona, Spain where it displays its new innovative 5G products and other IT solutions including SoftCOM AI.
Aside from delivering keynotes at the sessions during the conference, the technology firm also held a wide range of discussions on its end-to-end 5G products and solutions with operator customers and partners from around the world. Among the new offerings were simplified 5G sites, architecture, protocols, and operations & maintenance (O&M). Huawei says the new offerings will help operators quickly deploy 5G networks on a large scale.
At the event, it also launched the SoftCOM AI solution, which will help build autonomous driving networks of the future and maximize the value of telecom networks. Huawei also expressed its commitment to helping operators expand their business boundaries and achieve new growth through innovations in networks, services, and business models.
At this year’s event, Huawei showcased its end-to-end 5G products and solutions, ranging from simplified 5G sites and 5G integrated transport to 5G cloud core and simplified 5G O&M.
It also demonstrated its core technologies behind the new products and solutions, including radio frequency, optical transmission, IP, and IT.
Similarly, Huawei demonstrated 8K high-definition (HD) live streaming on Vodafone Spain’s 5G network and showcased new applications such as Cloud VR, cloud gaming, and cloud PCs. Under the support of Huawei, multiple European operators, including Vodafone, announced that 5G networks are now ready for commercial use.
In addition, Huawei presented its idea for autonomous driving networks, as well as its full-stack, all-scenario SoftCOM AI solution, to significantly improve operating efficiency, network performance, O&M efficiency, and user experiences. The SoftCOM AI solution enables “0 bits,0 watts” and adaptive beam adjustment, thereby maximizing the value of telecom networks.
Huawei is actively innovating networks, services, and business models. It works with customers to redefine the business models and boundaries of the telecom industry, and ultimately help operators succeed. This will be achieved through a portfolio of innovative business solutions, including IoT cloud services, personal mobile services, five-star premium home broadband, and cloud-network convergence. Huawei also signed 5G contracts with many operators from around the world.
So far, Huawei has signed over 30 commercial 5G contracts with operators around the world, and shipped over 40,000 5G base stations. It aims to help operators jump-start 5G and deliver a high-quality 5G user experience. This is the first time that all of Huawei’s three business groups (BGs) — Carrier BG, Enterprise BG, and Consumer BG –have participated in the Mobile World Congress (MWC).
Huawei’s Enterprise BG showcased four-star products: the industry’s fastest OceanStor Dorado series — all-flash storage; the world’s first AI-powered data centre switch; the world’s first Wi-Fi 6 access point (AP) for commercial use; and the X series cameras — the world’s first AI-powered software-defined cameras.
Huawei’s Consumer BG showcased multiple popular devices and launched the world’s first foldable 5G smartphone. It will be recalled that Huawei was the first company in the industry to launch commercial 5G chips and devices, and has worked with the industry to drive 5G maturity and commercialization.
Huawei remains the world’s only telecom equipment vendor that is subject to and passes inspections against the highest-level standards. This ensures Huawei can create more secure and trustworthy products and solutions for its customers.
The MWC 2019 runs from February 25 to 28 in Barcelona, Spain. For more information, visit http://www.huawei.com/mwc2019/.
