In collaboration with the industry partners, Huawei recently published a white paper titled "5G-Advanced Technology Evolution from a Network Perspective – Towards a New Era of Intelligent Connect X" to provide guidelines that will help promote 5G technologies and develop a sustainable 5G industry.
China Mobile Research Institute Vice President Duan Xiaodong, GSMA Head of Technology at Greater China Liu Hong, Huawei Cloud Core Network Product Line President Richard Liu, and Nokia Fellow and Chief Advisor of Radio Systems Harri Holma were present at the paper's release ceremony.
The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) has officially announced 5.5G as the second phase of 5G and named it 5G-Advanced to derive greater social and economic value from 5G.
Industry partners composed this white paper to clarify the requirements and technologies for its evolution from 5G and expedite its development on networks.
5G is essential for upgrading service experience and fueling the digital and intelligent transformation of industries. And the core network plays a pivotal role in 5G-Advanced network evolution. So, it is important to develop 5G core network architecture and technologies in line with the business models.
To enhance network capabilities and meet ever-diversifying service requirements, 5G-Advanced will evolve both 5G architecture and technology.
Also, 5G-Advanced network architecture will facilitate cloud-network and computing-network synergies in better ways.
Moreover, 5G-Advanced technologies will expand the application of AI, allow convergence of different RATs and different types of networks for unified support and enable tailored network services.
This white paper will serve as a valuable reference for 5G-Advanced development.
