Huawei: 5G to power the digital economy
Huawei Technologies Co said it has signed more than 3,000 commercial 5GtoB contracts with Chinese operators and partners by the end of 2021, as 5G private networks have been deployed at scale in multiple industries in the nation.
5GtoB is a one-stop solution unveiled by Huawei to promote industrial use of 5G and is part of Huawei's broader push to help industries accelerate digital transformation.
Ding Yun, president of Huawei's carrier business group, said by the end of 2021 more than 200 global operators have deployed commercial 5G networks, servicing more than 700 million 5G users in the world. This growing userbase is bringing commercial returns to operators while driving continuous network rollouts.
Ding made the remarks at a forum held a day before the Mobile World Congress 2022, a major global telecom industry exhibition which kicked off in Barcelona, Spain on Monday.
Ding said the vitality of the digital economy can be evaluated by three factors: connection density, computing diversity and carbon reduction intensity, and these factors give operators the levers they need to shape the future of the digital economy.
By increasing connection density, operators can grow their 5G user base and expand their business scope. By diversifying computing resources, operators can create synergies between connectivity and IT to boost enterprise digitalization for new growth. For carbon reduction, new green information and communication technology solutions Huawei provides will increase network capacity and cut the energy consumption per bit for greener development, Ding said.
