At the same event, Huawei unveiled its 5G modem Balong 5000, which it narrated as the most powerful 5G modem in the world

China’s tech giant, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. has recently launched world’s first core chip – Huawei TIANGANG that is tailored specifically for 5G base stations. At a 5G launch event in Beijing, Huawei announced the innovative chip that will support simplified 5G networks and large-scale 5G network deployment all over the globe. Reportedly, to date, the biggie has won 30 commercial 5G contracts and shipped over 25,000 5G base stations worldwide.

According to Huawei, these end-to-end 5G chips support networks of all standards and all bands, providing access to the best wireless and microwave services.

Ryan Ding, Huawei Executive Director of the Board and Carrier BG CEO, stated, “Huawei has long been committed to investing in basic science and technology. We were the first to make breakthroughs in key technologies for large-scale 5G commercial use.” Further, he said, “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.”

The new chip boasts higher than double of the capacity of previous ones

Notably, Huawei TIANGANG is the industry’s first 5G core chip, moreover, it can support large-scale integration of active power amplifiers (PAs) and passive antenna arrays into very small antennas. According to Huawei, the chip boasts super high computing capacity, with a 2.5-fold increase over previous chips. Furthermore, using the latest algorithms and beamforming technology, a single chip can control up to 64 channels, which is the industry’s highest standard. In addition, getting ready for the future network deployment, this chip also supports the 200 MHz high spectral bandwidth.

According to reports, Huawei TIANGANG brings revolutionary improvements in active antenna units (AAUs), with 50% smaller, 23% lighter, and 21% less power consuming base stations. Huawei promises that 5G base stations can be deployed in just half the time it took to install a 4G base station.

Huawei’s innovations are simplifying 5G

Huawei’s all 5G related progress and rollouts in last 1 year has completed all pre-commercial testing and verification in China, showing a green signal for commercial use of 5G. Moreover, the innovator’s every move towards 5G is making the technology effective and simplified for the customer use

Yang Chaobin, President, 5G Network Product Line, Huawei, said, “Huawei’s full-series, all-scenario simplified 5G products enable ultimate 5G performance and experiences,” and “These products help significantly boost network deployment and O&M efficiency, and make 5G deployment easier than 4G.”
