At the 12th Global Mobile Broadband Forum (MBBF) 2021, Yang Chaobin, President of Huawei Wireless Solution, delivered a speech in which he addressed “Innovation for 5Gigaverse Society”.
“5G is growing rapidly around the world, with more than 170 networks built and nearly 500 million users developed in two years,” he noted. “As the commercial deployment of 5G enters a new phase, users need a more continuous experience and the digitalization of the industry places new demands on 5G capabilities. Therefore, we believe the next step is to scale 5G from hotspot to continuous coverage of all scenarios, from Gbps to 5Gigaverse, and from pilot industry to digitization of all sectors, to build a gigabit network. ubiquitous and a 5Gigaverse company, ”he said. .
According to Huawei, changes in user behavior and the digitization of the industry place higher demands on 5G. According to viewing statistics for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the number of views via mobile devices increased fivefold compared to 2012, while the number of television views decreased by 50%. In terms of FWA, the number of users exceeds that of wired users.
Additionally, 5G DOU (usage data) has tripled over 4G as video services expand. Therefore, it is expected that by 2030, mobile networks will carry more traffic than wired networks and become the main vector of Internet traffic. In “toB” exploration, progress has been made in the digitalization of the industry. 5G has enabled more than 10,000 scenarios in more than 20 industries around the world. Going forward, 5G capabilities will continue to evolve to integrate fragmented connections across various industries, creating an IoT space with hundreds of billions of connections.
“Thus, a 3D macro-pole-indoor networking mode should be adopted to maximize the value of macro-sites by deploying pole sites and indoor products on demand,” he suggested. “This way we will be able to build 5G networks with continuous coverage to enable toB and toC and adopt a 5Gigaverse society. “
According to Huawei, Massive MIMO and ultra-wideband maximize macro coverage and capacity. Macro-sites represent up to 45% of operators’ investments in network construction, with maximizing capacity and macro coverage becoming a major concern. Two years of 5G commercial deployment has proven that Massive MIMO and ultra-wideband technologies can improve user experience 10 times and have become the choice of most carriers around the world.
“A different spectrum requires different personalized strategies depending on their characteristics,” he advised. “TDD spectrum with high bandwidth and large capacity has lower coverage compared to low frequency bands and requires improved coverage, while FDD with large coverage and fragmented spectrum requires improved capacity. . Therefore, this year we launched a full line of 5G base station products to help operators meet these requirements. “
“Innovation will never stop. The next decade will be a decade of 5G. 5G will continue to evolve and innovate towards 5.5G. We hope to work with global partners to continuously innovate based on user experience and industry requirements to take user experience to new heights while digitally transforming industries, ”he concluded .
