Huawei's rotating chairman Guo Ping said today that the world's 5G deployment has come to a phase that can take a pause, with 5G subscribers worldwide reaching more than 90 million as of July.
Guo Ping said, "The global 5G deployment has come to an end, and the next phase will be focusing on developing industry applications to unleash the 5G network dividend."
According to Guo Ping, operators should also maximize the value of their networks against the backdrop of the current global economy.
He made three recommendations.
First, focus on user experience and use the money where it will produce the most results.
Second, make full use of existing 4G and FTTx networks, and conduct overall coordination and planning with new 5G networks.
Third, 5G network deployment prioritizes coverage of hotspot areas and key industry applications to fully unlock the dividends of 5G networks.
Huawei will leverage its capabilities in these strategic technologies to help Huawei's customers and partners achieve commercial success, he said.
To truly realize 5G commercial success, the industry needs to work together. Only when the industry unifies standards and builds an ecosystem together can we better achieve scale replication, he said.
Guo Ping said: "In the future, Huawei will vigorously build capabilities to enable partners, collaborate and innovate with them, and pool the company's strength to promote their prosperity and growth."
