5.5G increase network capacity by 10 times: Huawei
Recently, Huawei wireless network product line general manager Gao Quanzhong participated at IOTE·2021 in Shenzhen and speakers about the 5.5G network, benefits, current status, and future possibilities.
According to the information, the International High-precision Positioning Technology and Application Innovation Summit Forum was conducted on 24th October. The industrial leaders and invited guests deliver several keynotes about the network technology, problems, and future scopes.
At the event, Manager Gao stated that the global 5GtoB industry development is moving towards its peak with a steady growth rate. Currently, more than 20 different industries have adopted the 5G network while over 10,000 applications have been developed.
Going with the speech, the Huawei manager noted that the iteration of the mobile communication network is developing with each decade. In addition, each network depends on its corresponding bandwidth spectrum to provide a strong network connection in the era.
Gao Quanzhong further explains, alongside the network speed, the positioning accuracy also increases by ten folds in each generation till 5G. In this line, the soon-to-frozen 3GPP R17 standard is expected to achieve 0.5-meter positioning accuracy.
To say so, we have reached so far from the 2G network generation that the communication network has been advanced to cross thousands of miles in a few minutes. Thanks to the 5G, we are hoping to reach more heights.
Furthermore, the 5.5G will bring a ten-fold increase in network capacity alongside the centimeter-level positioning accuracy and the terminal standby. The report shows the terminal standby time will improve by more than two years.
Huawei 5.5G: Previous Reports
On this matter, Huawei previously stated to bring 5.5G between 2025 and 2030. The company wants to provide its consumers with a network capacity that can deliver Gbps downlink at a low latency as low as 5ms.
In addition, it will be able to support the sub-100GHz full frequency band with more advanced benefits over the 5G network. In previous reports, the Chinese firm also highlighted six areas that’ll be enhanced by the 5.5G, it includes-
- Spectrum reconstruction
- Uplink enhancement
- Full scenario IoT
- L4 autonomous driving network
- Green and low carbon
Huawei launched All-optical Autonomous Driving Network White Paper
At the 7th Global Ultra-Broadband Fixed Forum (UBBF 2021), Huawei launched the first “All-optical Autonomous Driving Network White Paper“. Huawei NCE Optical Network Marketing Director Wang Jinping elaborates this white paper document.
This forum was conducted in Dubai under the theme of “Connect +, New Growth”. At the vent, Director Wang stated driverless driving is not only creating a new experience but bringing a quality connection also.
He further mentions the all-optical network is the cornerstone of the entire communication network to the extent that it has become an industry consent. Speaking about Huawei’s goal, he said the company wants to build an efficient, safe, and green all-optical autonomous driving network, that will satisfy the following standards-
- Contactless operation
- Spontaneous response
- Zero failure
In addition, these high-quality services will lead the entire industry towards joint development. Apart from the director Wang, the research director from a well-known consulting firm- Omdia also shared his thoughts about the all-optical network.
Meanwhile, the Huawei director emphasizes that the company’s autonomous driving strategy is a scenario-based solution in the industry. Furthermore, enhancing the network element and network layer is bringing more intelligence to the single-domain autonomy.
Let’s discuss the various aspects of the Autonomous Driving Network White Paper of Huawei-
Huawei Autonomous Driving Network Doc: White Paper Release
There are three aspects of this network solution that can improve the capabilities of the current all-optical autonomous driving network. You can scroll down to check all three points-
According to Huawei NCE Director, dumb resources for the optical fibers and cables are major issues in the current all-optical network industry. Thereby the all-optical autonomous driving network solution introduces pre-connection and optical iris technology innovation in the network element layer.
This arrangement combines the image recognition and big data analysis and diagnosis capabilities of the iMaster NCE intelligent management and control system. Thus, the network layer is able to improve its capacities in the following aspects-
- ODN Topology Restoration
- Accurate Fault Detection
- Accurate Resource Visual Management
- Predict Slow-Changing Faults
- Achieve Business Risk Investigation
End-to-End Home Broadband Experience:
The E2E home broadband experience guarantees a high-quality digital life experience and simultaneously solves WiFi-related problems. It aims to resolve 90% of faults originating from customer complaints that include installation and maintenance problems.
The network has achieved 30% of fault door-to-door and 60% of fault location time. In addition, it delivers a high-quality home broadband service experience after solving the root cause of the problem.
