Huawei bets on Europe at 5G

Huawei bets on Europe at 5G

One of the largest Chinese telecommunications companies is expanding cooperation with Europe.

“Europe is not only a sales center, but also a regional center with integrated functions, including research and development, production, logistics and training,” director Austin Zhang says.

5G is the fifth generation cellular network technology that currently operates in three countries only – the United States, South Korea and China. Experts as its advantages note a high data transfer rate along with less human concerns.

Huawei currently has 26 research and development laboratories in 14 European countries. For example, in Austria, a Chinese company works together with all three mobile operators, who acquired nationwide 5G licenses at the auction in May.

Being a leader at 5G implementation is also important that it would contribute to the development of new technologies such as self-driving cars and virtual reality.

At a recent press conference, Huawei representatives said that of the 50 commercial licenses sold worldwide for 5G networks, 28 went to Europe.

This figures the interest of Europe in cooperation with the largest telecommunications-equipment manufacturer in the world Huawei Company.
