Huawei Technologies’ booth, the largest among all exhibitors at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC), received swarms of visitors intending to learn about the Shenzhen-based company’s cutting-edge, green technologies on display during the world’s biggest mobile event that took place from Monday to Thursday in Barcelona, Spain, a Xinhua report said yesterday.

“During the WMC, roughly more than 10,000 registered visitors visited our booth, which occupied an exhibition area of 9,000 square meters, and on the first day alone, more than 3,000 customers came to our booth,” said Philip Song, chief marketing officer of Huawei’s Carrier Business Group. “Among the visitors, 42% were executives such as chief technology officers, of enterprises.”

The Huawei booth combined cutting-edge technologies with commercialization, by showcasing tech solutions and future technology visions that have the potential to be commercialized, and invited 15 leading operators from Spain, Brazil, the UAE, Turkey, Ethiopia and other countries share their experiences in this regard.

According to Song, Huawei has kept its investment in R&D above 15% of its annual revenue on average in the past decade to maintain a continuous lead in product solutions. According to surveys by industry analysts such as Omdia UK and Del Oro Group in the United States, by the end of last year Huawei continued to be a global leader in products and solutions in 5G base stations, optical transmission, core networks, home broadband access, and cloud services, among other areas.

The wireless products and solutions released by Huawei during this year’s WMC will help operators build high-quality 5G networks with high performance and energy efficiency, and evolve gradually to 5.5G, said Gan Bin, vice president of Huawei’s wireless network product line.

The company also introduced its green development solution to meet the trend toward carbon neutrality. In Europe, Huawei has already cooperated with some operators to deploy the latest green three-layer architecture solution, and has jointly worked with industry partners to incorporate indicators measuring network carbon emissions intensity into the formal international standards of the International Telecommunication Union.

“We are helping not only operators but also the entire industry to save energy and reduce emissions. We drive green development through continuous technology innovation and ongoing collaboration with operators and with the industry as a whole,” said Song.
