At Mobile World Congress (MWC) Barcelona 2023, Huawei took home multiple GTI Awards.
Huawei’s Green Target Network program scooped the GTI Innovative Breakthrough in Mobile Technology Award and Outstanding Award, while its 5G Smart Ocean project won the GTI Market Development Award for its outstanding contributions to the digital transformation of the maritime industry.
Huawei’s Green Target Network Programme Scooped GTI Innovative Breakthrough in Mobile Technology Award and Outstanding Award
This is the second green solution and energy saving project by Huawei that won this heavyweight award following the 5Green Solutions. This is a testament to Huawei’s substantial contributions to technological innovation and sustainable development in energy saving field, as well as Huawei’s continuous efforts in energy-saving industry cooperation over the past few years.
As network traffic is surging, global operators are torn between achieving zero carbon emission and guaranteeing optimal user experience. In response to the global climate action, Huawei takes multiple key measures in industry cooperation, industry standards, and energy saving technology innovation through green target network projects. These measures help operators achieve exponential network traffic growth without increasing energy consumption, significantly improving energy efficiency while reducing carbon emissions of wireless networks.
Huawei’s 5G Smart Ocean Project Won the GTI Market Development Award
Together with Chinese telecom operators, Huawei has long begun to actively deploy coastal 5G networks to cater for data and voice requirements of those working at sea and on farms along the coastline, to stimulate the development of the maritime economy. The allocation of 5G low-band spectrum makes it possible for these operators to economically deploy coastal 5G networks on a large scale. Thanks to significantly stronger network coverage, the operators have built a multi-band, multi-layer, and multi-cell three-dimensional network. TDD+FDD coordination achieves optimal network coverage and capacity. In heavily loaded hotspots, high-band spectrum is used to deliver high capacity for users.
Li Jie, vice president of Huawei’s Wireless 5G<E TDD Product Line, said: “As a leading telecom equipment vendor, we are proud to work with operators to support the digital transformation of the maritime industry with leading 5G solutions.” Considering the disparity between offshore and terrestrial radio propagation characteristics, the operators and Huawei have worked together to build a dedicated propagation model for offshore areas based on the measurement results to optimize network configuration and deployment models. With the help of these technologies, the operators have achieved ultra-wide signal coverage in offshore areas.
This three-dimensional coastal 5G network not only enhances communication between those working at sea and along the coast, it also significantly improves mariculture efficiency, and extensively supports industry development and regulation of coastal areas.
