Committed to providing the safest and most advanced 5G products and solutions as well as application scenarios, Huawei has secured over fifty 5G commercial contracts globally and shipped over 200,000 massive MIMO AAUs, the Chinese tech giant announced on Tuesday.

Asia-Pacific is leading the world in terms of 5G deployment and South Korea is the world’s first country that has realised large-scale commercial use of 5G. Since the rollout of 5G in early April, the number of 5G subscribers in this country exceeded 2 million, the company said at the 5th Huawei Asia-Pacific Innovation Day here.

“5G is arriving at the right time. More specifically, 5G can provide wide coverage, large bandwidth, and low latency on the basis of traditional connections. It can also provide slicing for different applications,” William Xu, Huawei Director of the Board, President of the Institute of Strategic Research, said in a statement.

This year’s Huawei’s Innovation Day is themed “Innovation Enables Asia-Pacific Digitisation” where over 200 representatives from government, industry and academia of Asia-Pacific countries and regions got together to discuss innovative 5G technologies and applications, sustainable development, as well as technology, humanity and nature.

At the same time, 5G, AI, IoT and Cloud are improving everyday life and nature, making the world a better place,” Xu added.

Amid the US-China trade war, Huawei has disclosed that the company is willing to share its know-how of existing 5G technology for a fee with a western firm.

The proposal, made by Huawei Founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei, in interviews with The Economist and the New York Times, is seen as a move to put concerns about the security of the company’s 5G technology to rest.

According to a report in the BBC, while the US and Australia have banned their networks from using Huawei’s equipment, the UK is still weighing a decision.

Huawei has repeatedly denied accusations of spying for the Chinese government.

“(Huawei is) open to sharing our 5G technologies and techniques with US companies, so that they can build up their own 5G industry,” the NYT quoted Ren as saying.

“This would create a balanced situation between China, the US and Europe.”
