Huawei highlights applications for 5G technology in the face of US sanctions



In industries such as healthcare, Huawei Technologies Co. of China is delivering smart services and 5G technology, which may be able to compensate for the damage done to its smartphone business as a result of United States trade sanctions.


As part of its partnership with the Guangdong Second Provincial General Hospital, the company installed 5G technology and over 10,000 smart devices, which are capable of collecting and transmitting real-time health data from patients to doctors and nurses, thereby improving patient care.


5G is an ultra-fast wireless technology with low latency that allows a large number of smart devices to be connected to the internet at the same time. 5G is also known as fifth generation (5G). The current standard, 4G, transmits data at a slower rate and is only compatible with a limited number of devices.


Despite being barred from entering the United States and several other key markets, Huawei is the world's largest supplier of 5G technology equipment and infrastructure. During the first half of last year, it briefly surpassed South Korean handset manufacturer Samsung to become the world's largest smartphone manufacturer.


The United States' sanctions, on the other hand, have prevented Huawei from obtaining the computer chips needed to build its smartphones. Last month, the company predicted that smartphone revenue could fall by as much as $40 billion — or approximately 80% — this year compared to last year.


One strategy is to increase revenue by providing 5G technology and services to industries such as healthcare, finance, and even education, among other things.


In comparison to previous generations of communication technologies, "5G has three distinct characteristics: high bandwidth, low latency, and massive connections," according to Guo Zizhong, director of Huawei's Smart Hospital Business Division in China. "As we all know, 5G has three distinct characteristics," he added.


When it comes to adapting to the three characteristics, in fact, the medical field is the best match of any industry.


The hospital in Guangzhou, a city with a population of 15 million people, makes use of a variety of smart technologies, including a 5G ambulance equipped with medical devices and cameras that transmit data and video in real time, allowing doctors to make more accurate diagnoses while patients are on their way to the hospital, allowing them to be treated as soon as they arrive at the facility.


Patients' heart monitors, for example, would have to be removed in order to upload data, which would then be reviewed by doctors in the past.


Real-time monitoring allows doctors to see what is happening with a patient's heart rate and give them immediate instructions on what to do, according to He Yongcong, a physician in the hospital's department of cardiovascular medicine.


In addition, 5G technology can be used in monitors that continuously monitor the progress and speed of intravenous infusions, as well as in smart wristbands that serve as emergency alert devices in the event of an emergency. Because of this, nurses can monitor patients from a distance and prepare infusions and medications in advance, rather than having to visit patients at their bedsides on a consistent basis.


A hospital nurse named Chen Xiaofang explained how the implementation of the 5G network has allowed her to save significant amounts of time while performing routine tasks.


Although 5G has the potential to collect data and make many industries more technologically intelligent, experts believe that the technology must be more cost effective in order to be effective.


According to Cui Kai, associate research director at the research firm International Data Corporation, the high cost of devices and accessories, as well as the costs associated with construction, are preventing widespread adoption (IDC).


"It is possible that policy guidance and support will be required to accelerate the development of 5G. The development of 5G, we believe, will remain cost-effective in the medium term "Cui went into detail.


Cui stated that in order for 5G technology to become popular, a variety of technology services for a variety of industries must be made available to consumers.


"Only then... will we be able to accelerate the development of the digital transformation of the entire society."
