The News Roundup series brings you Huawei’s main monthly news in brief. So, what made headlines in June?
June 30: China Unicom Beijing & Huawei Present 2023 Achievements of the 5G Capital Innovation Project
Presenting at Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai 2023, the two partners:
- explained how they have enhanced the reach, deep coverage, and experience provided by 5G networks.
- proposed a definition for smart network operations that (a) can form a complete set of 5G network evaluation criteria and (b) serve as a reference for global operators in 5G planning, construction, maintenance, and optimization.
In 2022, China Unicom Beijing and Huawei deployed the world’s largest 5G 200 MHz high-bandwidth urban network. In 2023, the partners are focusing on achieving smart operations to achieve capabilities such as self-healing and self-optimization through dynamic networks and improve user experience through flexible operations

June 29: Huawei to Launch Full Set of Commercial 5.5G Network Equipment in 2024
At the 5G Advanced Forum during MWC Shanghai 2023, Huawei announced that it will launch a complete set of commercial 5.5G network equipment in 2024.
The end-to-end solution integrates 5.5G, F5.5G, and Net5.5G and will:
- protect operators’ previous investment in 5G.
- improve network performance tenfold.
- feature 10-gigabit peak downlink speeds.
- apply new technologies like passive IoT, which can open the door to a market of 100 billion IoT connections.
June 28: Huawei Launches 5GigaGreen Innovations
At MWC Shanghai 2023, Huawei launched 5GigaGreen innovations for wireless communications to promote ultimate network performance and energy saving for operators.
Ultra-wideband: Applicable to all bands and scenarios, Huawei’s ultra-wideband solution combines multiple bands into one, lowering energy consumption. Huawei’s 800-MHz MetaAAU, for example, provides the industry’s largest bandwidth, fully covers C-band, and uses 20% less power than two separate 400 MHz modules.
Multi-antenna: Huawei’s TDD Massive MIMO improves bit energy efficiency by 20 times compared with 4T4R. Huawei also leads the field in FDD multi-antenna technology – in Europe, the intelligent beamforming algorithm in our FDD 8T8R solution boosts bit energy efficiency by 1.5 times over 4T4R.
Signal Direct Injection Feeding (SDIF): Huawei’s unique antenna technology requires zero cabling and reduces losses by 1.5 dB. It works with Meta Lens to concentrate beam energy for greater antenna RF efficiency, improving energy efficiency by 25%. Huawei has delivered more than 250,000 green antennas for global commercial networks.
0 Bit 0 Watt: Huawei has achieved the industry’s first super deep dormancy with a 99% shutdown ratio, cutting equipment operating power to less than 5 W.
Jun 28: Huawei and Quality Tech S.R.L Enter Licensing Deal
Marking Huawei’s first patent license agreement with a Latin American company, the deal grants QualityTech S.R.L a license on Huawei’s patents covering Optical Distribution Network (ODN) products.

June 26: Huawei Thailand Receives Prime Minister Award for Human Capital Development
Granted by the National Innovation Agency (NIA), this award recognizes Huawei’s efforts at fostering digital talent and supporting the growth of Thailand’s 5G, cloud, and green ecosystems.
Since signing the Memorandum of Cooperation on Capacity Development for Sustainable Innovation Society in 2019 with a number national organizations including the NIA, Huawei has worked with the agency to cultivate university students, start-ups, and SMEs.
June 19: Huawei Kicks Off 2023 Tech Arena Competitions in Europe
Huawei launched the 2023 Tech Arena competitions in Europe at this year’s Viva Technology, one of the industry’s largest summits.
Huawei will host 10 Tech Arena competitions for over 1,000 students during the 2023–2024 school year in France, the UK, Ireland, Sweden, Germany, Finland, Belgium, Poland, Switzerland, and Israel. Contestants will test their skills in coding, algorithms, mathematics, and engineering to solve real-world industry problems.
Tech Arena competitions are sponsored and designed by Huawei’s worldwide labs in partnership with top universities.
June 15: UNIDO Announces AI Alliance with Huawei and Global Partners to Help Industries Go Digital
At the Intelligent Rail & Logistics Forum 2023 in Hungary, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) announced that it would establish the Global Alliance on Artificial Intelligence for Industry and Manufacturing with Huawei and international partners.
The alliance aims to build a platform for collaboration and knowledge-sharing to promote the use of AI in industry and manufacturing.

June 9: Huawei, 3GPP & International Partners Launch 5G-Advanced Core Promotion Initiative
Co-hosted by China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT) and Huawei, the 5G-Advanced Core Industry Forum saw the launch of the 5G-Advanced Core Promotion Initiative.
The initiative will promote industry-wide cooperation to drive the:
- commercial deployment of new core architecture for 5G-Advanced.
- build an intelligent, convergent core network that can connect everything and enable all services.
5G Advanced will enable a range of new service scenarios aligned with emerging requirements. These include the shift of video from 2D to 3D, enhanced connectivity, and the evolution of voice/video calling to intelligent interactions.
“The evolution of 5G-Advanced has reached a critical juncture, at which the construction and development of the core network are absolutely essential.”Leo Ma, President of Huawei Cloud Core Network Marketing Dept
June 7: CAICT, Huawei & Partners Launch New Calling Industry Cooperation Initiative
Launched at the New Calling Industry Development Forum in China, the New Calling Industry Cooperation Initiative aims to promote the rapid development of New Calling.
With call services remaining a key facet of operators’ service portfolios, New Calling enables them to monetize cutting-edge, app-free calling services and reshape how users experience phone calls.
New Calling features ultra-HD, intelligent, and interactive capabilities such as visualized voice calling, avatar video calls, real-time translation, and interactive menus.
