Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. is a Chinese multinational technology company that provides telecommunications equipment and sells consumer electronic, including smartphones and is headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong province. Huawei had over 188,000 employees as of September 2018.
Huawei Technologies on Wednesday launched a new generation of 5G mobile antennae. 5G is the fifth generation cellular network technology. The industry association 3GPP defines any system using "5G NR" software as "5G."
Huawei has pioneered the development of so-called Massive MIMO - or multiple input and multiple output - antennae that feature arrays of transmitters and receivers to run fifth-generation mobile services. These can achieve faster data speeds by directly tracking nearby smartphone users.
The antennae, unveiled at en event in Zurich, double bandwidth to 400 Megahertz and boost power output to 320 Watts. This makes it possible to expand coverage in the mid-band frequencies that many countries have earmarked for 5G services. They will weigh less and use less power than their predecessors.
Germany will work with Huawei to help build its national 5G networks.
