Huawei is again amid headlines for the 5G technology. But this time, it’s not related to any innovative solution. According to the latest information coming to our doorsteps, the China Mobile has purchased new Huawei 5G phone cases for up to 20000 units.
A week ago, China Mobile cooperation brought up the news regarding its plan to acquire 20000 Huawei 5G phone cases. However, at that very moment, the company didn’t reveal as to when it was going to give a successful execution to its words. Ultimately, the company has achieved its goal and bought a good amount of 5G cases.
As per the reports, China Mobile has gained these units from Beijing Putian Communication Technology Co. Ltd. These products come under the latest development of Soyealink. Consequently, it gives an idea that these covers have quite much to explore in comparison to previous ones.
Further, it also hints that Huawei 5G phone cases will now be available on China Mobile websites and other channels. So far, Huawei has launched the 5G phone cover for its flip-flop model, P50 Pro with a price tag of 799 yuan. [118.64 USD]. Since the case will get avail to more sites, we may find a little more discount on it.
Huawei 5G Phone Case
Speaking of what new additions the company has done over the phone covers, these products embeds an eSIM chip. Besides, it also consists of a 5G modem and some advanced functions that bring the 4G capability of the device to the 5G level.
Moving ahead, the case bears a weight of 52 grams with a large surface thickness of 3.2mm. Alongside, it has gained a simple and elegant light gray color over the leather material. For the moment, the product is only in access to the P50 Pro variants, but the company will gradually make it available to more manufacturers as well as models in the future.
How to operate? That’s easy. Users who came in touch with the 5G phone case for the first time need to select the main card first. Then, they have to enable the eSIM facility with the main card support. Thereafter, follow the guidelines to enjoy a new network experience on your handset.
Huawei won first place in smart metro equipment 2022
Recently, China Unicom published a list of 4 massive competitors in the field of metro tech and solutions. Among the major tech makers, Huawei is the one to achieve the first rank in smart metro equipment 2022 with a quotation of 3.297 billion yuan.
Generally, China Unicom has engaged itself in Smart Metro Equipment Centralized Procurement. As per the procurement firm, the plan is to purchase 84,929 sets of intelligent and efficient metropolitan area networks and to expand the existing work.
On the other hand, this procurement of smart metro automation serves as the major target of the 5G bearer networks in 2022. Thus, China Unicom brought this smart metro 2022 equipment among four significant 5G operators: Huawei, ZTE, Fiberhome, and H3C.
The latest information also reveals that the quotations for ZTE, Fiberhome, and H3C were 3.176 billion yuan, 3.067 billion yuan, and 2.721 billion yuan, respectively.
This is not the first time that the smart metro is in the news headlines. Back in 2020, China Unicom initiated the last round of this procurement. In comparison to the past, Huawei has a bid share of more than 52%. Meanwhile, ZTE has a share of more than 25%. The leftover is in the area of Fiberhome and Xinhua.
Advantages of China Unicom smart metropolitan area network
The smart metropolitan area network mainly refers to the cloud DC communication area with SR+EVPN technology. The details describe that traditional metro network structures have faced numerous challenges for 5G services.
For instance, complex services, super high costs, difficulty in the execution of cloud networks, and more. As a result, China Unicom introduced a new smart metro equipment project with virtual techniques for the 5G demand in the world.
Here are some main benefits of the smart metropolitan area network (MAN):
- New networks area can well operate 5G integration for government, enterprise, and home brand services
- It will have a large capacity and advanced architecture
- The advanced MAN network can save a lot of space and power via converged bearer
- It can provide better-integrated capacity for cloud services
- The addition of a controller will greatly increase the speed of the services
Huawei has already worked for the country’s first 5G commercial site for the smart metropolitan area network. At that time, the network of the metropolitan area increased 10 times in comparison to the original product.
Besides, the cost of unit bandwidth was reduced to 75%. Hence, China Unicom believes that taking the help of Huawei Technologies will give a new boost to the overall activity.
Huawei will continuously solve survival problems: Chairman
On September 26, Huawei attended the opening ceremony of STW 2022. At this event, the new rotating chairman of the company – Xu Zhijun delivered a short speech. He described how Huawei needs to make efforts in the field of research and development to solve environmental and survival problems.
Xu Zhijun reports that for confronting the survival problems in an extreme environment and developing a fruitful future, Huawei must continue its research and open innovation. Although, the company is trying its level best to prepare itself for future challenges. Yet, it is necessary to concentrate well on the technical field.
Over the last decade, Huawei has funded more than 845 billion yuan [118 trillion USD] in research and development. Besides, it marked an expenditure of more than 20 billion yuan [2.81 billion USD] in basic research.
However, the Chinese manufacturer managed to establish 86 basic tech labs and 172 joint laboratories for innovation. But, it’s time to focus on the new emerging obstacles that could harm the growth and evolution of the company, if not prevented.
Some major challenges:
Xu believes that even after a lot of achievements, several hurdles are waiting ahead in this evolution journey:
- Firstly the carbon neutrality goal. Challenges like poor stability in energy generation, low conversion efficiency, high energy storage price, less security, and mismanagement are standing in the mid-way.
- Global computing power demand is facing 2-3 orders of magnitude in the next coming years. Supply Chain and other essential components require more enhancement.
- Users are expecting the 5.5G network to exhibit an increase of 5 times in the uplink and downlink rates. What kind of core technology will the 6G network need is still a big question for the company.
- Artificial Intelligence is still a topic of concern for many operators. Its security, interpretability, small samples, computing data, and more are not easy to handle.
And the list continues to a far distance. Though the company has come up with several things, there is still a lot to move on with. Xu says,
“We need to work together to fully release the productivity of all walks of life, give birth to new industries, new business forms, and new models, and promote the progress of the world.”
