Huawei 5G: early start, large investment and extensive commitment
Before 5G commercialization really comes, the competition is already fierce. In this 5G war we can see that it does not matter for a country or a company, but everyone strives to develop 5G capabilities internally while keeping an eye on external competition. In particular, marketing and advertising are on the most important battlefields. In 2018, many phone manufacturers fought first to launch a 5G smartphone, including Samsung, Huawei, OPPO, Vivo, Xiaomi, Lenovo, OnePlus and more. Although every company pays attention to it, the level of commitment and investment can be different, leading to different levels of strength.
Huawei, as one of the first players in the 5G era, apparently attaches great importance to the development of 5G. As mentioned above, Huawei already started in 2009 with the development of its own 5G technology. In 2013, Huawei hired more than 300 top experts from wireless industry around the world and announced that they are investing $ 600 million in 5G research. Huawei set up a 5G product line for 5G products in 2016. Today, more than thousands of employees are working on 5G product development. After this, Huawei invested nearly US $ 1.4 billion in 5G product development in 2017 and 2018.

In addition to an early start and a huge investment in R&D and development, Mr. Ren Zhengfei, the leader of Huawei, has a clear strategic positioning for Huawei 5G. “In 5G, we are determined to move forward strategically,” said Mr. Run during a 5G company briefing at the Huawei R&D center in Shanghai. He also compared 5G with “an important fight” and said, “Huawei’s 5G technology was born to fight in the” fight, “meaning you take over the high-end market in the world.”
Mr. Ren’s determination has also driven Huawei to win extensive recognition. When Western countries took action against Huawei’s 5G technology, British Telecom’s chief architect Neil McRae said publicly that Huawei is the only “true 5G provider” that also indicated that Huawei has powerful 5G technology.
How powerful can Huawei 5G be? Perhaps we can evaluate Huawei’s 5G technology from the following aspects.
First of all, Huawei has improved its competitiveness in 5G for a decade. It has achieved remarkable results, from standardization to global testing and from commercial testing to commercial application. Since the start of the 5G R&D in 2009, Huawei has been proactively involved in formulating 5G standards. Data show that Huawei has 3GPP standards for eight key technologies, including soft NR architecture, polarization code and uplink and downlink disconnection. According to a 5G patent report released by IPlytics, a German patent data company, Huawei is second only to Samsung in terms of the number of 5G SEP patents, while Huawei takes first place in terms of technology contributions to 5G standards. Second, products from core networks, carrier networks, base stations to devices, to end-to-end R & D, Huawei has accumulated many years of rich experience. On the one hand, in terms of Imt-2020 test results, Huawei is a leader in overall system performance. On the other hand, Huawei has the world’s first ASIC chip-based small CPE and IPTV @ 5G that was demonstrated in LGU + in South Korea with a peak speed of 2 Gbps. It is worth mentioning that in 2018 Huawei unveiled the first commercial chip in the world based on the 3GPP standards. Moreover, Huawei is currently the only company in the world that can offer 5G end-to-end products and solutions.

Third, from telecom to vertical industry, Huawei has the most extensive collaboration with partners and a strong skill in 5G business incubation. Huawei has more than 186 industrial partners, 45 cooperation projects around the world and more than 20 joint innovation projects in Europe. Moreover, Huawei has built an ecosystem for 5G that is ahead of schedule and includes the individual, family and vertical industry. The ecosystem is focused on five key areas, including low-lying digitization, cloud, AR / VR. Last but not least, Huawei has powerful power in 5G device. Huawei is the only global telecom in the field of chip, standardization, communication, mobile telephony and other areas. We can say that Huawei has a full set of technology, which also proves that Huawei is capable of bringing valuable 5G devices to global consumers.

The first battle with the commercialization of 5G devices is not about a smartphone
The battle for 5G first appeared in eMBB and mobile broadband. In 2019, the 5G smartphone will at most be a commercial test for operators. There are many types of 5G devices. Mobile router and CPE, two of the most popular devices that consumers have access to, would probably become the most popular devices because it can help AR and VR to get rid of cable networks. The 5G networks will unleash the corporate values of AR and VR and contribute to the development of new products. Moreover, the 5G network can offer ten times greater network capacity than the current 4G network, so that the network would no longer be a problem for broadband access. 5G mobile router and 5G CPE can solve the problems with internet capacity, speed and latency of the 4G network and offer possibilities for wireless 4K HDR TV, video monitoring, 4K live broadcasts and other services. From the point of view of Huawei’s 5G device development, the author believes that Huawei will launch a commercial 5G wireless router CPE and then a 5G mobile Wi-Fi product. These two products offer a good way to verify Huawei’s 5G baseband. Then Huawei launches the first 5G smartphone with Kirin 990 and 5G baseband Balong 5000. Seen from the current development trend, that is probably how Huawei implements its plan in a 5G device. Huawei is most likely the start of the 5G battle with a 5G mobile router CPE and 5G wireless portable devices. As far as the author knows, Huawei’s 5G CPE Pro is the first manufactured with 7nm process and it is equipped with Balong 5000 chip. The product also supports 4G, 5G (NSA and SA) network architectures. Users do not need to change the CPE for network architecture upgrades. In addition, the Huawei 5G CPE Pro supports a large bandwidth of 200 MHz. Under 5G mode it offers a download speed of up to 4 Gbps and it is 1.6 Gbps under 4G mode. Because where a 5G network is not covered, the 4G network also offers an 8K HD experience. It is possibly the best 5G coverage solution from Huawei.

In addition, the HUAWEI 5G CPE offers a Wi-Fi 6802.11ax solution with a WLAN network peak speed of 4.8 Gbps, so that the WiFi network downlink is no longer a bottleneck. The product has a dual-polarized high-gain antenna system that improves signal strength by 30 percent horizontally and vertically. It can also support a comprehensive service, including a smooth 8K video experience, gaming with high fps and more. The following is Huawei’s 5G mobile product with Wi-Fi support. The product is also made with 7nm process and equipped with Balong 5000 chip. Under 5G mode it offers a maximum download speed of 4 Gbps, while with a general internet setting it is only 100 Mbps. The device also features mobile Wi-Fi support and it is a 5G mobile Wi-Fi device in the pocket. For business elites, the product can provide superfast broadband access to their computer, mobile phone, tablet and other portable smartphones.
At the same time, 5G smartphone and 5G folding phone will bring another major competition to the industry in 2019. Both products require the continuous optimization of operators in networks. In this aspect, Huawei has more advantages over Apple and other phone manufacturers because Huawei cooperates with operators from more than 170 countries around the world. In addition, the author visited the Huawei Beijing R&D center and was impressed by the Huawei base stations around the world, as well as by the engine room with a very large number of base stations. Huawei has made a huge investment in it, which other mobile phone manufacturers could not do. Of course, Huawei also has advantages in producing 5G mobile phones. Huawei is more competitive in mass production with high quality and high standards thanks to the improved production capacity of smartphones based on the shipment of 200 million units in 2018.

5G is a step-by-step, rapid development. In the early phase of 5G commercialization, those who can take the initiative can stand a chance of winning. Huawei has earned unique benefits in 5G and is still engaged in continuous efforts, bringing huge changes in the lives of people and all industries.
As Mr. Hu Houkun, the rotating Chief Executive Officer of Huawei said at MBBF, 5G innovation opportunities bring IT to a new level. Based on the five major revolutionary changes brought by 5G, all parties in the industry must break through conventional thinking to invent new devices, develop new applications, create user services
