Huawei to invest $600m into 5G

Written by Nick Farrell



Wants the tech running by 2020

Huawei is set to invest $600 million into research into 5G network technology by 2018.

Huawei predicts to begin a commercial rollout of 5G by 2020 after 4G runs out of steam. The Chinese company recently piloted its own superfast 4G service in London with speeds of up to 300Mpbs. In a statement on Huawei’s website, the firm explained that the multi-million dollar investment would be used to develop a number of enabling technologies for 5G.

It was also claimed in the statement that the speed of Huawei’s 5G will peak above 10Gps, over 100 times faster than the speeds offered by today’s 4G service providers. Eric Xu, the current CEO of Huawei said there are several issues that must be resolved before 5G can become a reality, such as how to engineer network architectures capable of handling increasingly higher data volumes and transmission speeds necessary to accommodate more users on the network.
