The theme of this year’s event is ‘Intelligent Connectivity’ – the term used to describe the powerful combination of flexible, high-speed 5G networks, the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and big data. Intelligent connectivity marks the beginning of a new era defined by highly contextualised and personalised experiences, delivered when and where you want them. This is the future of our industry and our world.
Huawei is a regular participant of the congress, presenting its solutions and products at the exhibition within the framework of the event. At MWC Barcelona 2019, Huawei is appearing full force with a host of exhibitions, forums, and keynotes, and holding a wide range of discussions with operator customers and partners from around the world.
According to the company, Huawei is presenting its end-to-end 5G products and solutions at the event, such as simplified 5G sites, architecture, protocols, and operations & maintenance (O&M). These new offerings will help operators quickly deploy 5G networks on a large scale. Huawei has also launched the SoftCOM AI solution, which will help build autonomous driving networks of the future and maximize the value of telecom networks.
Huawei was the first company in the industry to launch commercial 5G chips and devices, and has worked with the industry to drive 5G maturity and commercialization. Huawei demonstrated 8K high-definition (HD) livestreaming on Vodafone Spain's 5G network, and showcased new applications such as Cloud VR, cloud gaming, and cloud PCs. These applications showed that 5G will bring a better life for everyone.
