Huawei and European Partners Join Forces as EU 5G Research Levels up


Europe reached a major milestone on the road towards 5G with the launch of the first phase projects of the European 5G Public Private Partnership on 1 July 2015Huawei is a key contributor to this joint effort. The 5G-PPP initiative is expected to leverage a total of €3.5 billion in private investment, boosted by €700 million in EU funding.

The 5G-PPP aims at strengthening European 5G research and global cooperation in this field with a view to achieving communications infrastructure capable of coping with future wireless demand by 2020. This involves providing 1000 times higher wireless area capacity, saving up to 90% of energy per service provided, and creating a secure, reliable and dependable internet with “zero perceived” downtime.

Huawei has been at the forefront of this collaborative effort since the very beginning, as Board Member of the 5G Infrastructure Association, and is now contributing with its expertise and global resources to some of the most future-oriented projects being implemented under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme.

At 5G World Summit 2015 in June 2015, Huawei received the “Biggest Contribution to 5G Development” award for its continuous innovation in the field of 5G, particularly with regard to new air interface technologies.
