Since the upsurge of 5G commercial use around the world in 2019, South Korea, China, the United States, the United Kingdom and Germany have all vigorously expanded 5G network deployment, from the supply of 5G equipment, to the supply of 5G terminals, to 5G+ industry, 5G+ smart agriculture, and 5G+ The application of the Internet of Vehicles has gradually landed, and major manufacturers in the industry chain are vying for market share. In the field of 5G equipment suppliers, Huawei, Ericsson, Nokia, and ZTE are among the top four. In the field of 5G terminals, Samsung, Apple, and Huawei have been alternately leading the mobile phone market because of the supply of chips. Huawei’s development has been affected by the US ban, but Huawei has not stopped, and Korean media have also made some noise. The author has summarized it and let everyone see the strength of it.
Huawei and Uzbekistan’s national telecom network operator sign a 5G smart agriculture project
On May 20, Uztelecom, the national telecommunications network operator of Uzbekistan, cooperated with Huawei to develop a 5G smart agriculture project. The Tashkent Association of Irrigation and Agricultural Mechanization Engineers (TIIAME) also participated.
It is reported that Uztelecom has tested its 5G network in 2020. Huawei and TIIAME are carrying out smart agriculture pilot projects based on 5G technology, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and big data management systems, monitoring and data processing.
Judging from the current 5G technical analysis and commercial operation tests, agricultural and rural areas can fully utilize the advantages of 5G networks, such as low latency, high reliability, hot spots, high capacity, and continuous wide area coverage, to be applied to the development of smart agriculture. 5G technology has potential applications in such fields as building agricultural information service cloud platforms, building agricultural product quality traceability systems, developing rural agricultural product e-commerce networks, building smart agriculture, and improving rural governance and information service levels.

Huawei Austria and Vienna/Wolkersdorf SPL TELE reach long-term cooperation
Recently, Vienna/Wolkersdorf SPL TELE and Huawei Austria recently reached an agreement on a long-term cooperation in the field of electric vehicles. Huawei will deliver a large number of HiCharger fast charging modules this year to support the grand goal of SPL TELE. Cooperation in this field will last at least four years.
Vienna/Wolkersdorf SPL TELE is a family-owned company with 450 employees and gradually developed after being spun off from Siemens.
Huawei’s HiCharger provides an output power of 150-1000V, which can meet the trend of high-voltage fast charging of vehicles. The efficiency of the 20 kW version developed for the European market is 96.5%. HiCharger attracts SPL Tele not only because of its high quality and high performance, but also because of its predictable maintenance and intelligent noise regulation. The HiCharger charging module is completely isolated, so it is particularly resistant to dust and moisture. In addition, the system will automatically remind SPL TELE to perform maintenance, which greatly reduces operating costs.
Korean media: Huawei dominates the 5G equipment market, South Korea is losing competitiveness
On May 19, South Korean media reported that South Korea has realized the commercialization of 5G in 2019 and is the first country in the world to commercialize 5G. In addition, since 2011, Korean mobile phone manufacturers have occupied the highest market share of 5G mobile phones in the world. However, experts say these so-called successes are becoming meaningless.
Now, Huawei has become the dominant force in the global 5G equipment market. Since 2019, Huawei has been occupying this position. Its market share has dropped slightly from 32.6% in 2019 to 31.7%. Ericsson, Nokia and ZTE are three vendors respectively. The market share occupied is 29.2%, 18.7%, and 11%. Samsung’s 5G equipment market share reached 7.2%.
The 5G mobile phone market will make waves in 2021. With no supply of Huawei’s mobile phone chips, the ranking of mobile phones in the Chinese market has changed significantly, and the global market is also fluctuating. In the first quarter of this year, Samsung Electronics shipped 17 million 5G smartphones, with a market share of 12.7%. During the same period, Apple, OPPO and vivo supplied 40.4 million, 21.6 million and 19.4 million 5G smartphones respectively.
According to data from the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), Huawei currently has 302 5G standard-essential patents, higher than any other company in the industry. Up to now, Huawei has lost some 5G contracts due to the US ban, but it still has the greatest say in the 5G field. The domestic market is huge, and it is still difficult for Ericsson and Nokia to surpass.
However, the United States and Japan have recently reached a partnership on 5G and 6G research and development, and the two parties are expected to invest US$4.5 billion. Korean media believe that although Chinese, European, and Korean companies currently account for 90% of the global 5G equipment market, NTT Docomo and Qualcomm own 6% and 10% of 5G patents, respectively. The United States and Japan are likely to use these patents to independently develop 5G and 6G equipment, and occupy a leading position in the global market.
