Huawei outlined the path to a 5G Era for Vietnam during the 4G/5G International Conference 2018.
Dr. Mohamed Madkour, Vice President of Huawei Global Wireless Network Marketing, highlighted the value that 5G will bring to Vietnam while speaking at the conference on “Paving the Way for 5G in Vietnam”.
He pointed the difference that 5G could create in terms of enhancing people’s lives, improving businesses and driving economic growth. He also emphasized that expanding and evolving LTE network and its derivatives, 4G/4.5G, together with exploring new segments like home broadband, enterprise and Internet of Things (IoT) are the first steps on the 5G transformative road.
Dr. Madkour underscored the importance of investing in the network and new business models today to be prepared for a 5G Era. With early 5G standards and technologies now established, we will see commercial 5G networks deployed widely across the globe by 2020.
He pointed out that 5G brings new opportunities for operators to deliver new 5G services and applications to consumers and businesses across vertical industries.
Dr. Madkour said, “LTE is now defined as the fundamental network for all connected businesses. It is often referred to as LTE4ALL, with the capability to enable all types of services, including voice, data, video, Fixed-Wireless Access (FWA) as well as new IoT applications. This paves the way for operators to explore new business opportunities beyond consumer mobility, for example fuelling digitisation in homes and enterprises.”
