Huawei was awarded "Biggest Contribution to 5G Development" at 5G World Summit 2015.

[Amsterdam, Netherlands, June 24, 2015] Huawei was awarded "Biggest Contribution to 5G Development" at 5G World Summit 2015 for its continuous innovation and industry contributions to 5G particularly for the new air interface technologies.

With the rapid development of mobile broadband and the Internet of Things, the oncoming massive number of connections between people to people, people to machine and machine to machine will quickly begin to blur the boundary between the physical world and the digital world. By 2020, an everything-connected world will become a reality with 5G becoming the key enabling technology. Although the standardization of 5G will begin in 2016, 5G technology has been a very hot topic for quite some time. The major challenge with 5G is determining how to achieve the vision of 10Gbps throughput, 1ms latency and 100 billion connections. With its extensive experience in 2/3/4G and industry-leading 5G research, Huawei was able to win the first 5G award in the industry.

Chaobin Yang, CMO of Huawei Wireless Product Line, said, "We would like to take this opportunity to thank the judging committee, all industry colleagues as well as Informa for this first 5G award. It's a great recognition of Huawei's efforts towards 5G innovation, standardization contribution and industry collaboration. Since we started 5G research in 2009, Huawei has achieved significant breakthroughs in end-to-end 5G system innovation, including the new air interface technologies, new architecture and the world's highest throughput test bed. We promise to continue our efforts towards contributing to a global unified standard and achieving a win-win industry chain in close collaboration with the whole industry."

In order to overcome the critical challenge of 5G long tail use cases, Huawei constantly focuses on innovation and also proposed many revolutionary 5G new air interface technologies, including the foundational waveform F-OFDM which can flexibly adjust the sub carrier bandwidth, SCMA (Sparse Code Multiple Access) which can increase 3 times connections and throughput, and Polar Code which can attain the Shannon limit. With the implementation of these new technologies, the spectral efficiency can be increased by at least 3 times without introducing the multi-antenna technologies. Since 2014, Huawei released the world's highest throughput test bed in high band (above 6GHz) and low band (below 6GHz), with total throughput reaching 115Gbps and 10.32Gbps respectively. In the academic field, Huawei has contributed over 180 papers on 5G in close collaboration with leading universities such as New York University and Harvard University. Huawei also plays an important role in many standard organizations and industry alliances such as 5GPPP, IMT2020, 5GIC, 5GMF and NGMN, defining 5G together with all industry partners.

Dimitris Mavrakis, Principal Analyst at Ovum and one of this year's award judges commented, "Huawei is spending considerable effort and funds for 5G and is making significant advances in R&D, particularly in air interface and test bed developments. This award recognizes Huawei's continuous efforts for innovation and R&D excellence and acknowledges the vendor's standardization activities."

Informa is a global leading telecom and media research company, and also one of the world's largest exhibition/forum/conference organizers, with over 8000 employees and over 150 offices globally. The LTE/5G world summit is one of the most influential mobile communication summits, and the judging committee of awards consists of leading operator representatives, authoritative analysts and media.
