5G core chip code named TIANGANG was born to support 5G network systems to simplify and deploy large-scale 5G network worldwide.
Huawei yesterday launched the world’s first core chip designed specifically for 5G base stations, codenamed TIANGANG. At a 5G opening event in Beijing and also seen as a starting point for MWC Barcelona 2019, Huawei announced its innovative chip that will support 5G networks to simplify and deploy the 5G network system, all over the world. So far, the company has signed 30 commercial 5G contracts and shipped more than 25,000 5G base stations globally.
This chip has a high integration capability, which means it can support large-scale integration of active power amplifiers (PA) and passive antenna arrays into very small antennas. It also boasts super-high computing power, with a 2.5-fold increase over previous chips. Using the latest algorithms and technology focus beamforming signals, a single chip can control up to 64 channels, this is the industry’s highest standard. The chip also supports 200 MHz high bandwidth, ready for future network deployment.
The chip also offers revolutionary improvements in active antenna units (AAU), with base stations smaller than 50%, 23% lighter and 21% less power consuming. 5G base stations can be deployed in only half the time required to install a 4G base station. These features will help solve problems such as reusing base station points for network deployment costs.
Also at the event, Huawei introduced the world’s first data center switch (switch) with an AI brain. With industry-leading performance, this switch reduces the potential for Ethernet packets to zero and overall latency in just under 10 milliseconds. It consumes less than 8W of power while providing higher computing power than 25 orthogonal two-way CPU servers.
Huawei has also introduced comprehensive AI technologies to support self-driving network systems and developed SoftCOM AI solutions to help network operators maximize energy efficiency, network performance, O&M results and user experience.
In the event, Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei and General Manager of Consumer Business Group (Consumer BG), also announced the chip for the world’s fastest 5G multimode terminal and devices.
MWC 2019 takes place from February 25 to 28 in Barcelona, Spain. Huawei will showcase and introduce their products and solutions here
