This is a record increase over its previous number of contracts and base station sales. Higher than its competitors. This is not it, because recent research shows that Huawei has not only the top 5G vendor but also the top contributor to 5G standards.
New research from Strategy Analytics analyzes the contributions of industry vendors to 3GPP 5G standards and finds that in 3GPP Release 15 and Release 16 so far, the 13 studied companies contributed more than 78% 5G related papers and led 77% of the 5G related Work Items and Study Items.
The report assesses the 13 leading companies’ contributions to 3GPP 5G standards for the period of Releases 15 and 16 so far, based under different criteria.
The results indicate that the top 5 companies in 3GPP 5G standards activities are Huawei, Ericsson, Nokia, Qualcomm, and China Mobile.
“According to our assessment, leading infrastructure vendors – Huawei, Ericsson, and Nokia – made more significant contributions to 5G standards than other studied companies. Huawei leads in terms of overall contributions to the end-to-end 5G standards, while Ericsson leads in TSG/WG chairmanship and Nokia in approved/agreed ratio of 5G contribution papers,” says Sue Rudd, Director Networks and Service Platforms service.
