SHENZHEN, China, July 27, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

- Synergy across five major tech domains is key

On the opening day of the online Better World Summit, Huawei's Rotating 
Chairman Guo Ping elaborated on how synergy across five major tech domains will 
help unlock the full potential of 5G to drive commercial success. Guest 
speakers from carriers, industry organizations, and standards bodies, such as 
China Telecom, Etisalat, MTN, GSMA, and 3GPP/ETSI, were also joined by several 
thousand online attendees from more than 80 countries to explore how 
information and communications technology (ICT) can power new economic growth 
both now and in a post-pandemic world.

Working together to fight the pandemic with technology

The pandemic has reshaped how we live and work, and has dealt a heavy blow to 
the world economy. Fortunately, ICT offers a concrete set of tools to aid in 
the fight against COVID-19 on multiple fronts.

"As an ICT company, it's our responsibility to use the technology we have to 
help contain and defeat this pandemic," said Guo. "Together with our partners 
and customers, including carriers and enterprises of all types, we can use 
technological solutions to effect a positive impact on our communities."

"By drawing on our experience in early hotspots, we have developed nine 
scenario-based solutions that use ICT technology to help combat the pandemic. 
Whether it's hospital network deployment, remote consultation, online 
education, or restarting governments and businesses, we've been sharing our 
experience and capabilities to help control the spread of the virus and reopen 

Unlocking the full potential of 5G: Synergy across five major tech domains

There are already more than 90 million 5G users worldwide. "As global 5G 
deployment begins to wrap up, we need to strengthen our focus on industry 
applications," Guo said. "This will help us unleash the full potential of 5G."

The business case for 5G is not just better connectivity. When technologies 
like 5G, computing, cloud, and AI come together, they reinforce each other and 
create numerous opportunities across five major tech domains: connectivity, AI, 
cloud, computing, and industry applications.

"Huawei has in-depth strengths in each of these domains," Guo continued. "We 
can mix and match them to create scenario-based solutions that meet the unique 
needs of our customers and partners. This is key to unlocking the full 
potential of 5G and driving commercial success."

For 5G to succeed commercially, the entire industry needs to work together. 
Vertical industry applications can be replicated at scale only when unified 
industry standards and a collaborative ecosystem are in place. "Moving forward, 
Huawei will double down on efforts to equip our partners with the capabilities 
they need," Guo said. "We will promote joint innovation, and drive growth for 
everyone in the value chain."

Balancing short-term and long-term goals: Precise deployment for maximum value

Guo said, "Given the current economic environment, carriers need to focus on 
both short-term and long-term goals. More precise deployment is how they can 
maximize the value of their networks." Huawei has three suggestions for this.

- First, carriers should prioritize user experience and spend money where it's 
needed most to maximize the value of existing networks. 
- Second, carriers should make the most of existing 4G and FTTx networks, and 
integrate them with new 5G networks through holistic coordination and precise 
- Third, 5G deployment plans should prioritize hotspots and key industry
