China’s company Huawei Technologies launched the world’s first core chip in Beijing on Thursday. This chipset is specially designed for 5G base stations. The name of this chipset is Tiangang. In addition, the company has also acquired 30 5G Commercial Contracts.
More than 50 percent of these contracts are in Europe. The company’s executive director of board Ryan Ding said at the launch event that this chipset named Tiangang will support world-wide compliant 5G networks and large-scale network deployments.
The company claims that this new chipset will be the first of its kind in the 5G industry. This will be crucial in integration, computing power and spectral bandwidth. This feature will help reduce network diploma costs. However, some western countries (which are also US affiliates) are hampering Huawei from taking part in 5G construction and deployment due to national security reasons. However, the majority of the company’s commercial contract is from Europe.
Huawei also launched its first 5G modem. Its name is Balong 5000. The company claims that this is the most powerful single chip, which separates the different architecture. The company also said that Huawei’s 5G smartphone powered by Balong 5000 will be released in the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Balong 5000 is the first chipset that offers industry benchmark performance for maximum 5G download speeds. It can gain download speed of up to 4.6Gbps at sub-6.5GHz.
