Global technology giant Huawei has stressed the importance of embracing cross-industry innovation as key to accelerating innovation in super-fast 5G mobile data technology.

Huawei shared its vision for a collaborative ecosystem that could stimulate innovation and bring 5G technologies to market faster during Wednesday’s Global TD-LTE Initiative (GTI) Summit at the Mobile World Congress 2017 (MWC) in Barcelona.

With the shifting focus of global ICT leaders to jointly innovate 5G technologies, the GTI Summit highlighted 4G’s evolution and the roadmap to 5G development, with the ultimate goal of building a fully connected world. “GTI as an initiative has contributed greatly to the development of the 4G industry in the past and we look forward to it assuming an even more active role in the development of the 5G industry,” said Eric Xu, Huawei deputy chairman and rotating CEO.

“We must live up to our historic mission and continue our collaborative efforts to give 5G greater vitality and a longer life cycle. Only with greater vitality and a longer life cycle will 5G provide better returns to investors.”

As part of its MWC showcase, Huawei made several announcements around 5G core solutions for commercial use, known as Service-Oriented Core 2.0 (SOC 2.0), which provides connectivity for a multitude of terminals and on-demand services. Huawei also announced a 100GE-enabled network functions virtualization infrastructure (NFVI) solution that delivers high bandwidth, low latency and superb performance to telecom operators. Huawei and China Mobile also detailed the joint progress in 5G dual-connectivity innovation.

On day two, Huawei released its LampSite 3.0 solution to improve the experience of indoor mobile broadband usage, which accounts for almost 80 percent of all mobile usage today. The MWC organizer, GSMA, recognized Huawei’s contribution to the development of long-term evolution (LTE) networks by awarding it the “Outstanding Contribution for LTE Evolution from 4.5 to 5G Award.”

Huawei’s Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) solution was also awarded “Best Technology Enabler,” while its active antenna unit (AAU) solution won “Best Mobile Infrastructure.”

“This is the first year that GSMA sets an outstanding contribution award for 5G and Huawei is honored to receive it,” said Xu Wenwei, executive director of the board and chief strategy marketing officer.

“The next few years will continue to see LTE development and 5G innovations. During the 4.5G to 5G (period), Huawei will keep focusing on helping its customers improve user experience, to step into (the) all-cloud era, to enable innovative services for vertical industries, and finally to build 5G with more vitality and longer life cycle.”

Day three of MWC saw Huawei and Vodafone, with support from Audi, host Europe’s first demonstration of the use of cellular technology to wirelessly connect cars to other vehicles, people and roadside infrastructure. The new technology, dubbed “Cellular V2X” (C-V2X), was revealed during a live demonstration for invited guests at the world famous Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya race circuit.

China Mobile, GSMA and Huawei also jointly announced a collaboration to build an assessment framework for achieving carrier-grade NFV reliability for the telecommunications industry. The project aims to combine industry efforts to construct a scalable and comprehensive framework that will enable proactive, flexible and analytical network maintenance for telecom operators. This will eliminate potential network risks and help to build a network with higher reliability, increased stability and better connectivity for the delivery of digital services.
