Chinese telecom giant Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. said that it had obtained 46 commercial 5G contracts so far in 30 countries and regions.
It has shipped more than 100,000 5G base stations, ranking top in the world, according to the company.
Huawei said it is well prepared for China’s 5G commercial use. In February last year, it made the world’s first 5G call and launched the first 5G terminal device.
Headquartered in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen, the privately-owned Huawei is a world-leading telecommunication solution provider and also one of the world’s major smartphone brands.
China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology granted commercial-use 5G licenses Thursday to the China Broadcasting and Television Network and the country’s top three telecom operators — China Telecom Group, China Mobile Communications Group and China United Network Communications Group.―Wion
