Huawei Partners With Carmakers to Build 5G-enabled Automobile Ecosphere
May 13, 2020 News

 

Huawei, the world’s leading ICT provider, has established an alliance with 18 automakers to build a 5G-enabled automobile ecosphere to accelerate commercial use of 5G technologies in the industry.

The first batch of 18 automakers of this alliance include First Automobile Group, Chang’an Automobile, Dongfeng Motor Corporation, SAIC Motor Corporation, Guangzhou Automobile Group, BYD Auto, Great Wall Motors, Chery Holdings and JAC Motors.

“Together with the deep convergence of automotive and ICT, intelligent connected vehicle emerges as a new revolutionary development engine of human society, with its impact goes far beyond the two industries themselves,” said Eric Xu, Huawei Rotating Chairman.

5G technology is considered essential for enhancing connected vehicles’ self-driving and entertainment capabilities with advantages in transmission speed, reliability and low latency.

Asia-Pacific (APAC) will be the leading region in terms of 5G technology adoption with 1.14 billion subscribers, accounting for 65% of global 5G subscriptions by 2024, which will significantly influence the segments like IoT and automobile according to GlobalData.

Huawei has provided products and technologies since the launch of its first 5G communications hardware MH5000 in April 2019,  such as the T-Box platform for ecosystem partners to support 5G vehicle and 5G+C-V2X intelligent network application innovation.

In April, Huawei launched a new DC fast-charging module product “Huawei HiCharger”, a solution to NEV charging infrastructures. The company is also building an open intelligent-driving platform to study app interface, car controlling systems, smart cockpits and the internet of vehicles.

Many international and domestic automotive companies have launched various innovations over the past year in self-driving, intelligent network, and information services based on Huawei’s 5G products and solutions, gradually enabling consumers to perceive the value of 5G technologies in automobiles.

“Huawei does not make cars”, said Eric Xu. “Based on ICT, Huawei aims to be a digital car oriented and new-added components provider.”
