Besides the middle band, the 700MHz low band is also an ideal 5G frequency band, especially in Indonesia, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal, etc. It can provide 4G and 5G dual services simultaneously through a network with dynamic spectrum sharing technology. . This is the key coverage band to bring universal mobile broadband services and bridge the digital divide between urban and rural areas.
Overall, the full release of 5G’s impact on the economy and society depends on the vigorous development of 5G technologies and applications. To achieve this goal, under the leadership of the government, telecom operators, vendors, academies, content providers and industries are gradually converging, communicating user needs and exploring unified, coordinated 5G products and service models. , efficient and energy efficient. . The next five years will still be a critical period for the development of the 5G industry in the Asia-Pacific region. The entire industry still needs to work together to promote the implementation of various policies aimed at building a sustainable and harmonious ecosystem in the region.
6 GHz is a compelling choice for 5G in the next 10 years.
3.5 GHz, 2.6 GHz, 2.3 GHz and 4.9 GHz are the world’s preferred and mature 5G midbands. They provide a total bandwidth of 800 MHz for the initial phase of 5G development. Based on this, we need to find and reserve a next band of spectrum for long-term service development in the next 5-10 years to meet the total requirement of 2000 MHz in the midbands. At the 8th Asia-Pacific Spectrum Conference in April 2022, regulators from China, Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, Germany, Finland and other industry organizations such as the GSMA reached this consensus.
6GHz is the last and only choice that can achieve “2GHz mid-band bandwidth in each country”. 6 GHz for IMT has gained wide consensus in the industry. The ITU, GSMA, GTI and 3GPP are actively promoting 6 GHz IMT research. Major international operators, such as Vodafone Deutsche Telekom, Orange, Telefonica, China Mobile and Axiata, support 6 GHz for IMT as a global harmonized spectrum strategy.
In the Asia-Pacific region, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Cambodia, Laos and Singapore are actively participating in the study and identification of 6 GHz IMT under WRC-23 of the ITU. We believe that 6 GHz will become the key band for the development of 5G and 5.5G (advanced 5G) in the Asia-Pacific region. Huawei is willing to support the research and testing of IMT 6 GHz as global standards by governments, operators and industry organizations in the region. This will encourage the entire industry to unify standards and energize ecosystems, prepare for the future in advance, and evolve into a new digital and intelligent world.
