Huawei has announced the world’s first core chip for 5G base stations. The Chinese tech giant unveiled the new “Tiangang” chipset today in Beijing.
President of Huawei’s Carrier Business Group Ryan Ding says the chip makes breakthroughs in integration, computing capability and spectral bandwidth. The Tiangang chip’s computing capability is 2.5 times more powerful than previous chips, and it supports the 200 MHz high spectral bandwidth that will be required for future network deployment.
“Huawei now has industry-leading capabilities to deliver end-to-end 5G, with simplified 5G networks and simplified operations & maintenance (O&M). We are leading the commercial rollout of 5G, and building a mature industry ecosystem.”
Huawei says the new chip also improves active antenna units (AAU) in a revolutionary way, and will cut the weight of 5G base stations by half.
At the launch event, Huawei also revealed the world’s first 5G multi mode Chipset “Balong 5000,” and announced its new foldable 5G phone will come to market in June.
Huawei confirmed that it has secured 30 commercial 5G contracts to date and has shipped over 25,000 5G base stations worldwide.
