Xu Wenwei, Director of Huawei and Director of the Strategic Research Institute, said, “The arrival of 5G technology is at the right time. On the one hand, 5G can provide wide connectivity, large bandwidth, low latency on the basis of traditional connectivity. Provide slice for different applications. This new feature makes it adaptable to a variety of complex industry applications. 5G advancement, spawning rich applications, changing the world. At the same time, 5G, AI, IoT, cloud convergence applications are changing people and Naturally, make the world a better place."
Xu Wenwei also announced that Huawei has obtained more than 50 5G commercial contracts and shipped more than 200,000 5G base stations worldwide. Of these, 28 are from Europe, 11 are from the Middle East, 6 are from Asia Pacific, 4 are from the Americas, and 1 is from Africa.
He said that with the arrival of 5G, reaching the limit of Shannon's law, Moore's Law has gradually reached its limit. Both theoretical limits and engineering limits need to break the bottleneck. Huawei must also move from innovation 1.0 to innovation 2.0, from innovation to invention. The most important of these is the university, and Huawei will fund university research.
Previously, Huawei established a strategic research institute that would focus on technologies for the next 5-10 years or even longer. Xu Wenwei said that Huawei will also adhere to open innovation, first to help universities cultivate talents; secondly, carry out technical cooperation in physical chemistry and other aspects, establish a joint laboratory; and finally, strategic investment core technology and innovative enterprises.
