Huawei Continues to Promote Its Vision of 5.5G
In his keynote speech at Huawei Connect 2022, David Wang, the company's Executive Director of the Board and Chairman of the ICT Infrastructure Managing Board, said that 5.5G is a key milestone on the path to an intelligent world and released Huawei's latest series of white papers on the intelligent world. Wang also called upon the ICT industry to coordinate efforts around eight facets of this vision. By working together to further define and refine the industry vision and standards for the 5.5G era, the industry will move ever faster towards the 5.5G era and the intelligent world.
In the future, individuals, households, and industries will have higher requirements for digital infrastructure. For individuals, immersive services like XR and holographic communication are maturing, and the connectivity experience is set to increase from 1 Gbit/s to 10 Gbit/s. Mobile DOU will surge from today's 15 GB to 100 GB. Requirements for latency and ubiquitous connectivity will also increase. For households, the demands generated by advanced services like 24K 3D VR games and holographic education and meetings are creating a full-fiber, 10 Gbit/s era. For industries, digital transformation has now entered the fast lane. Industrial-grade applications such as smart manufacturing and power grid dispatching are raising diversified requirements for connections, quality, and sense, while also triggering explosive growth in demand for computing power and storage.
"We must continue to work hard if we hope to reach an intelligent world. The 5.5G era is an important milestone on this path – one we cannot miss. In the 5.5G era, we will need ubiquitous 10 Gbit/s experience; intelligent and high-quality compute scheduling; highly autonomous L4 networks; Cloud Native 2.0 services for enterprises, and a 10-fold increase of computing effectiveness, storage, and infrastructure energy efficiency," said Wang. He went on to highlight Huawei's belief that it will need the support of customers, ecosystem partners, industry organizations, and academic institutions to continue evolving and reinforcing digital infrastructure, thereby accelerating the advent of the 5.5G era and intelligent world.
