Huawei’s 5G intelligent and simplified core network solution won the “Best 5G Core Network Technology” Award at the 5G World Summit 2019 held in London recently.
5G will bring many changes to industries and promote new industry applications and business models. The 5G core network, as the hub for building ubiquitous connectivity and scheduling network resources, is centered on latency, connects things in addition to people, and provides differentiated and deterministic network service capabilities. This enables 5G to better serve industrial Internet and industry digitalization.
Huawei’s 5G intelligent and simplified core network supports all-cloud-based key technologies, such as three-layer decoupling, stateless design, cross-DC deployment, microservices, and A/B test. This network is built on leading cloud native, connectivity+, and edge computing technologies. Huawei’s 5G intelligent and simplified core network is the industry’s first core network that supports 2G/3G/4G/5G NSA/5G SA in-depth convergence. It provides the Single Voice Core simplified voice solution and CUPS-based distributed architecture. Based on CUPS, it supports one-stop user plane plug and play, on-demand scheduling of heterogeneous edge computing resources, fast integration of third-party applications, and building of an open edge ecosystem, providing differentiated services and enabling thousands of industries.
Ma Liang, director of the Huawei Cloud Core Network Product Mgmt. Dept., remarked, “We are honored to win this award. Huawei has continuously been investing in 5G core network R&D and has gained expertise in 5G technology. Huawei collaborates with carriers and industry partners to continuously develop 5G applications in vertical industries, enable a thriving industry ecosystem, and make full preparations for the mature commercial use of 5G.”
By June 2019, Huawei has won 46 5G commercial contracts globally, and has launched a series of cross-industry collaboration based on network slicing and MEC in smart grid, VR/AR, IoV, remote surgery, smart manufacturing, and other fields, greatly promoting 5G ecosystem prosperity. Huawei will keep pursuing technological advances to better serve our customers with better solutions.
