Huawei accelerates commercialization of 5.5G…”Connecting 100 billion objects, targeting battery”
Huawei is concentrating its company-wide capabilities on commercializing 5.5G, which is 10 times faster than 5G. Through this, it set the goal of connecting 100 billion things and building a network environment that is not bound by battery.
Huawei’s business blueprint for 5.5G was introduced at the ‘Darwin Hall’ of Huawei’s headquarters in Shenzhen, China, visited on the 16th. Darwin Hall is a comprehensive exhibition hall introducing Huawei’s cutting-edge products and solutions, as well as 5G business cases. 5.5G refers to 5G-Advanced ( Advanced ). Commercialization is targeted by 2025. “5.5G will connect 5G and 6G,” said a Huawei official. “It is a necessary step to realize 6G.”
Huawei’s 5.5G concept is ‘hyper-connectivity’. The goal is to connect 100 billion objects. Through this, it is possible to easily find a lost mobile device and to identify information such as customer movement with the mart item selected by the customer. “Apple’s lost and found tracker (Airtag) requires a battery, but in the 5.5G era, only the network is connected, so a world that does not depend on battery will be,” he said.

Huawei is steadily laying the groundwork for 5G to successfully realize 5.5G. A typical example is Tianjin Port. Huawei applied 5G-based eco-friendly smart port technology that integrates AI (artificial intelligence), big data, and cloud technologies to Tianjin Port. In a remote control room 10 km from the port, the crane was controlled and 5G autonomous driving was operated. As automation took place, labor costs were reduced by 60% and operational efficiency was achieved by 20%.
5G was also established at the mining industry site. In a coal or oil mining environment, it is not easy to connect cables far from the city, but 5G and microwave technology have solved it. In addition, by applying an optical network to the mine scenario, it was easy to locate employees buried in the event of a mine collapse.
In China, 5G deployment led by Huawei is rapidly spreading. The proportion of domestic 5G subscribers is around 60% based on handsets. On the other hand, China accounts for 70 to 80 percent, according to Huawei. This is thanks to the government’s active support for 5G. “The government is actively supporting investment in 5G, and thanks to that, Huawei has built 2 million base stations in China,” a Huawei official said.
Huawei is also continuing its aggressive investment in 5G. Huawei invested 161.5 billion yuan (30.6 trillion won) in R&D last year alone. This is equivalent to 20% of total sales. In addition, 25% of its 200,000 employees are R&D employees. A Huawei official said, ” R&“We are making technological progress not only in 5G but also in various fields,” he said.
