Ryan Ding, Executive Director of the Board and President of Huawei’s Carrier BG

KUWAIT: Ryan Ding, Executive Director of the Board and President of Huawei’s Carrier BG, has recently released Huawei’s new 5G products and solutions while also launching the company’s new 5G Partner Innovation Program. These efforts aim to build a thriving 5G ecosystem and make 5G a commercial success.

5G has developed beyond imagination in terms of deployment, ecosystem, and experience, says Ding, and networks are the foundation for the 5G business. So far, Huawei has been awarded 91 commercial 5G contracts. As a leading global 5G supplier, Huawei is committed to developing the best end-to-end 5G solutions. These will include the industry’s highest-performance 5G base station that supports all scenarios. Huawei is also the first vendor in the industry to provide industrial 5G modules for vertical applications.

Ding emphasized that in the 4G era, virtually all operators provided the same network experience. However, in the 5G era, operators can provide differentiated experiences and charge users based on more metrics, including data volume, latency, bandwidth, and number of devices connected. This makes it possible to monetize 5G, and it is critical that operators redefine their 5G business models now.

At the event, Ding also launched the 5G Partner Innovation Program. Through this program, Huawei plans to invest US$20 million into innovative 5G applications over the next 5 years, contributing to a thriving 5G ecosystem and accelerating the commercial success of 5G. Huawei and its global partners have worked together on multiple 5G projects, covering many domains including new media, campus, healthcare, and education.

Peng Song, President of Huawei’s Carrier BG Marketing and Solution Sales Dept, separately confirmed the release of a cutting-edge Huawei 5G network which is intended to help operators achieve commercial 5G success. It includes a series of product solutions, such as the simplified radio access network (RAN), smart IP network, ultra-high-bandwidth transport network, green connections, and AI-enabled end-to-end 5G services.

Looking to the future of 5G, Huawei and several industry partners also launched a 5GDN Industry White Paper this month. Since the establishment of 5G Deterministic Networking Alliance (5GDNA) last year, this is the first time the 5GDNA has introduced 5G Deterministic Networking (5GDN) comprehensively, including definition, concepts, key technologies, and successful use cases of 5GDN. This release opens a new chapter for 5G development and promotes development of more network applications.

An analysis of more than 100 applications in over 10 industries showed that the requirements of industry digitalization for 5G networks can be divided into three aspects: differentiated networks with orchestratable capabilities, dedicated networks with guaranteed data security, and self-service (DIY) networks with autonomous management.

In parallel, Yang Chaobin, President of Huawei 5G Product Line, has unveiled Huawei’s 10 key enablers of 5G, including the full-series all-scenario ultra-broadband products and solutions to facilitate all frequency band evolution to 5G, and the innovative end-to-end super uplink and slicing solutions to help operators build full-service capabilities. These offerings are intended to better cater for end users, home users, and industry users to secure business success in the 5G era.
