According to Xu, in terms of time, Huawei set up a communications technology lab in 2009 to start 5G research.
At the end of the same year, the world’s first commercial 4G network was only launched in Norway and Sweden, and China’s 4G license was only issued in December 2013.
In 2013, Huawei decided to further strengthen its investment in 5G research, announcing plans to invest at least $600 million in 5G research and innovation over the next five years, which did not include investment in productization, he said.
“In retrospect, the funding needs for research were not as large as expected, and in fact the planned $600 million investment was not all used up in the end. And I found that the earlier I invested, the less I might have invested cumulatively.”
In fact, in 2017, two years before the commercialization of 5G, we opened the research of 6G. For the 6G network, Xu Zhijun previously revealed that it is expected to be brought to market around 2030.
