HUAWEI launches the world’s first single-chip multi-mode modem, Balong 5000 that supports 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G on a single chip. It effectively reduces latency and power consumption without compromising data speeds.
It’s the first chipset to perform industry benchmarks for peak 5G download speeds with up to 6.5Gbps download speeds which is 10 times faster than top 4G LTE speeds in the market today. With non-standalone, 5G network architecture is built on top of legacy 4G LTE networks, whereas standalone 5G, as the name implies, will have its own independent architecture.
“The Balong 5000 will open up a whole new world to consumers,” said the CEO of Huawei’s Consumer Business Group, Richard Yu. “It will enable everything to sense and will provide the high-speed connections needed for pervasive intelligence. Powered by the Balong 5000, the Huawei 5G CPE Pro enables consumers to access networks more freely and enjoy an incredibly fast connected experience. Huawei has an integrated set of capabilities across chips, devices, cloud services, and networks. Building on these strengths, as the leader of the 5G era, we will bring an inspired, intelligent experience to global consumers in every aspect of their lives.
HUAWEI also introduced HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro that supports both 4G and 5G wireless connection. It can be used in homes as well as small and medium-sized enterprises for super-fast broadband access.
The HUAWEI 5G CPE Pro can deliver speeds up to 4.8Gbps and on 5G network, a 1GB HD video clip can be downloaded within screen seconds and an 8K video can be streamed smoothly.
HUAWEI has more than 5,700 engineers dedicated to 5G Research & Development including over 500 5G experts. They are no established 11 joint innovation centres for 5G solutions worldwide at the moment.
