Huawei was awarded Biggest Contribution to 5G Development at 5G World Summit 2015 for its continuous innovation and industry contributions to 5G particularly for the new air interface technologies.

With the rapid development of mobile broadband and the Internet of Things, the oncoming massive number of connections between people to people, people to machine and machine to machine will quickly begin to blur the boundary between the physical world and the digital world.

By 2020, an everything-connected world will become a reality with 5G becoming the key enabling technology. Although the standardization of 5G will begin in 2016, 5G technology has been a very hot topic for quite some time.

The major challenge with 5G is determining how to achieve the vision of 10Gbps throughput, 1ms latency and 100 billion connections. With its extensive experience in 2/3/4G and industry-leading 5G research, Huawei was able to win the first 5G award in the industry.

Chaobin Yang, CMO of Wireless Product Line, accepted the award on behalf of Huawei.

Yang says, “We would like to take this opportunity to thank the judging committee, all industry colleagues as well as Informa for this first 5G award. It’s a great recognition of Huawei’s efforts towards 5G innovation, standardization contribution and industry collaboration. Since we started 5G research in 2009, Huawei has achieved significant breakthroughs in end-to-end 5G system innovation, including the new air interface technologies, new architecture and the world’s highest throughput test bed. We promise to continue our efforts towards contributing to a global unified standard and achieving a win-win industry chain in close collaboration with the whole industry.”
