STATEMENT: Huawei to launch a full set of commercial 5.5G network equipment in 2024

SHANGHAI, July 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei announced that it will launch a full set of 5.5G commercial network equipment in 2024 at the 5G Advanced Forum during MWC Shanghai 2023. Huawei's Director and President of ICT Products and Solutions , Yang Chaobin, who made the announcement, said the company intends this launch to usher in the 5.5G era for the ICT industry.

5G deployment has progressed rapidly over the past four years and is already generating significant financial gains. Today, there are more than 260 commercial 5G networks around the world, serving more than 1.2 billion users, and there are already 115 million gigabit F5G users. With ever-evolving content and service models, advances in technologies like glasses-free 3D are creating unprecedented immersive experiences for users. However, these new services continue to require stronger 5G network capabilities. The industry has widely agreed that 5.5G will be a key milestone in the evolution of 5G and that it is fast approaching.

Huawei proposed the concept of a "5.5G Era", based on a comprehensive solution that integrates comprehensive evolved technologies including 5.5G, F5.5G and Net5.5G. This solution would protect operators' previous investment in 5G, while improving network performance by 10 times. This 5.5G Era would feature maximum 10 gigabit downlink speeds and maximum gigabit uplink speeds to meet increasingly diverse service requirements. It would also update the vision of the industry by using new technologies like passive IoT to unlock a market of 100 billion IoT connections.

Yang explained, "With a clearly defined standardization schedule, the 5.5G Era is already ready for technology and commercial verification. In 2024, Huawei will launch a full set of 5.5G commercial network equipment to be ready for 5.5 commercial deployment. G. We look forward to working with all industry players to embark on the new journey into the 5.5G era."

As an advocate of end-to-end 5.5G solutions, Huawei has been working with multiple industry players on R&D and verification of key 5.5G technologies. Significant progress has been made in this verification process, specifically for the Extremely Large Antenna Array (ELAA) that supports the 10-gigabit downlink, flexible spectrum access that helps realize the gigabit uplink, and passive IoT. that can enable 100 billion IoT connections. 50G PON is another key technology that can enable 10 gigabit speeds for F5.5G ultra-broadband networks, and is expected to be widely used in homes, campuses, and productions in the future. Huawei has worked with more than 30 carriers around the world on technology verification and application pilots for these technologies.

In addition to developing key technologies for 5.5G wireless and optical access networks, Yang announced that the company has been working on applying native AI technologies to 5.5G core networks to continuously improve network capabilities and availability. This would allow AI capabilities to be delivered to the edge of networks, so they can better serve numerous industries. Net5.5G promises 10 gigabit access, ultra-broadband transport, and microsecond-level latency over AI networks, enabling it to serve as a next-generation network foundation for industrial digitization by providing high-quality network access.

The industry is still in the early stages of developing a vision for 6G, with research related to key technologies just beginning. That is why many have turned to 5.5G as their milestone for future development. The 10x improvement in network capabilities in the 5.5G Era is set to enable numerous industries to unleash the productivity of digital technology.

MWC Shanghai 2023 will take place from June 28 to 30 in Shanghai, China. Huawei exhibits its products and solutions at booths E10 and E50 in Hall N1 of the Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC). Together with global operators, industry professionals, and thought leaders, we dive into topics like accelerating 5G prosperity, moving toward the 5.5G era, and intelligent digital transformation. 5.5G creates new business value in areas like connecting people, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the Internet of Vehicles (IoV), supporting countless industries as they move toward a smart world.
