Huawei’s Total Connect Conference 2022 kicked off today in Bangkok, Thailand, where Huawei shared its core initiatives to advance the digital development of the industry and released more than 15 innovative cloud services for the global market. At the All Connect Conference, Huawei’s Chairman-in-Office, Hu Houkun, said that Huawei is now actively working with industry partners to advance 5.5G technology together, which is the next evolutionary direction of 5G, covering both fixed and wireless areas.
According to Hu Houkun, Huawei aims to greatly increase network capacity, ensure ubiquitous 10Gbps/s rates, and meet industry demand for reliable, low-latency connectivity.
It is understood that in 2020 Huawei proposes 5.5G, a continuous enhancement of 5G capabilities. On top of 5G’s high speed, low latency and large connectivity, new capabilities such as uplink ultra-broadband, broadband real-time interaction and convergence awareness have been added.
At the 8th IC&E Summit on September 8, Dr. Tong Wen, Fellow and CTO of Huawei Wireless, gave a presentation on the topic of Bridging 5G to 6G.
He introduced to the industry the drivers and plans for the evolution from 5G to 6G, pointing out that 5G continues to evolve and 5.5G is the necessary path for the evolution from 5G to 6G.
Dr. Tong pointed out that in order to meet the new demands for 5G from new toC services and toB industry applications, 5G will continue to innovate towards 5.5G, achieving continuous enhancement of eMBB/URLLC/mMTC capabilities, while adding revolutionary capabilities such as sensing, passive IoT, positioning and intelligence, and building “10Gbps downlink, 1Gbps uplink This will enable the construction of a 5.5G network with 10Gbps downlink, 1Gbps uplink, 100 billion connections and endogenous intelligence.
