On July 18, at the Win-Win Innovation Week event, Huawei presented its development concept called “5.5G era”. CEO of Huawei David Wang talked about the evolution of the technology, the industry roadmap for the next few years, and the company’s achievements.
As stated in Huawei, the company’s engineers managed to achieve an Internet connection speed of 10 Gbit/s in the 5G standard. According to Wang, the development of 5.5G networks will allow not only very fast information exchange, but also open up new ways of wireless interaction.
For the first time, Huawei presented this technology at the 11th Global Mobile Communications Forum in 2020. A similar speed in the new network is provided due to the increased frequency and the use of higher-order MIMO technology. Users will be able to connect to 5.5G networks using devices that support the 5G standard, and the company estimates that this will be available by 2025.
We previously reported that the implementation of 5G networks in Russia has been suspended due to the departure of leading equipment suppliers and the impossibility of using the appropriate frequency range.
