Feb 27, 2018

[Barcelona, Spain, February 27, 2018] Huawei 5G Core solution received the "Best Network Software Breakthrough" award at Mobile World Congress 2018. This award shows the industry's recognition of Huawei's capabilities and performance in 5G core network standards, technologies, pre-commercial progress, and industry practices. 

Hosted by GSMA, the Mobile World Congress is the world's most influential mobile communications event, and its Global Mobile Awards are the highest honor recognized by the industry.

Huawei 5G Core uses a micro-service-centric software architecture and Service Based Architecture (SBA) to build a user-centric, application-defined and self-governed next-generation core network. This helps operators face the challenges of diversity and uncertainty in the 5G era. Huawei 5G Core is globe’s first 5G core network solution that is in compliance with the latest 3GPP 5G standard. Huawei has also proposed a smooth transition strategy, from a Cloud Native network, to a distributed network, and finally to the target 5G core network. This can maximize the return on investment (ROI) of operators' networks. Huawei 5G Core will also enable operators to expand into vertical industry markets by using the new business model of “Network slice as a commodity”. This will facilitate the transition from B2C to B2B and B2B2X for business success.

"We are honored to receive this award and appreciate the recognition of Huawei 5G Core from GSMA and the whole industry," said He Weijie, CMO of Huawei Cloud Core Network Product Line, at the award ceremony. “5G will change the way people live and work and enable broader vertical industry markets. This requires in-depth collaboration from all industries. Huawei is willing to work with operators and industry partners for the 5G era."

As of the end of 2017, based on the 5G Core solution, Huawei has deployed 15 pre-commercial sites around the world, and has launched a series of innovative projects, including the Slice Mall Innovation Project, collaborated with global leading operators and vertical partners to accelerate industry incubation and business implementation.

MWC 2018 runs from February 26 to March 1 in Barcelona, Spain. Huawei is showcasing its products and solutions at booth 1J50 in Fira Gran Via Hall 1, booth 3I30 in Hall 3, and the Innovation City zone in Hall 4. For more information, please visit
