BT and Huawei embark on pioneering 5G research partnership
Two of the world’s leading communications companies - BT and Huawei – have come together to lead the global development of 5G mobile technologies. The new partnership will see the companies conduct pioneering joint research into 5G, considering how faster mobile communication technologies might be applied, as well as the technical and commercial feasibility of deploying them.
It is hoped the research will drive the development and standardization of 5G technologies throughout the industry. BT and Huawei will work together at the world leading BT Labs in Ipswich and other locations around the UK to explore various aspects of 5G, including: network architecture; a new air interface between devices and base stations; ‘network slicing’ - which will allow operators to apportion network resources to specific services; machine-to-machine communications in Internet of Things (IoT) applications; and security technologies.
