At the India Mobile Congress (IMC) 2018, Huawei reinforced its commitment to India’s vision of timely 5G roll-out in India with multiple 5G use case demos, which heralds a breakthrough in the journey of making 5G a step closer to reality.
Speaking on the occasion, Jay Chen, CEO, Huawei India said, “Huawei has been a long-term partner to India and an active collaborator to the Indian telecom industry. Having partnered India in its 4G revolution, the 5G demos are the next step in bringing world class technologies and solutions to India, helping operators enable 5G network deployments, explore possible use cases and facilitate business success. With our 5G demonstrations in partnership with Indian operators, (Bharti Airtel) we would like to involve everyone in the process, and give India a glimpse of the digital future.”
Huawei at IMC showcases 5G end-to-end solutions including 5G NR and core and IP RAN. The 5G solution focuses on C-band, aligned with India specific 5G spectrum bands. Huawei exhibits also feature solutions for harnessing 5G technology in existing generation of networks with solutions such as CloudAIR, Massive MIMO and Intent driven network.
In a standalone demo at IMC, Huawei provides an experience of VR gaming use cases powered by 5G network.
Marking a first for the Indian industry, Huawei partnered with Bharti Airtel to conduct an “AR Holographic Communication” using 5G NR non-standalone architecture (NSA), showcasing their achievements in 5G service exploration. AR Holographic Communication like the one presented at the IMC are one of the most representative services of the upcoming 5G era. Using the Holographic Communication, users feel fully immersed when communicating with a live hologram. AR technology is especially relevant in the Indian context presenting immense possibilities in use cases of AR assisted Learning & Training, Gaming, Live Events and Entertainment. AR’s incredible experience requires end-to-end technical support backed by a network that is extremely fast, is able to handle large volumes of traffic, but still had low latency.
Mr. Randeep Sekhon, Chief Technology Officer, Bharti Airtel said, “Ubiquitous high speed networks will open doors to a digital world that will be full of exciting digital innovations. Having conducted India’s first in-lab 5G test with Huawei, we are delighted to extend our partnership to demonstrate cutting edge AR and VR based use cases for 5G.”
5G networks will offer an unprecedented leap in performance in comparison to previous mobile networks.
