Huawei said in a statement that the MH5000 module is based on the Balong 5000 5G chip which it launched in January. “Based on this chip, Huawei has developed the world’s first 5G car module with high speed and high quality”, it said.
“As an important communication product for future intelligent car transportation, this 5G car module will promote the automotive industry to move towards the 5G era."
It said the module will aid its plans to start commercialising 5G network technology for the automotive sector in the second half of this year.
Huawei has in recent years been testing technology for intelligent connected cars in Chinese cities such as Shanghai, Shenzhen and Wuxi and has signed cooperation deals with a swathe of car makers including FAW, Dongfeng and Changan.
