London (People’s Daily) -- Huawei has launched its 5G Innovation and Experience Center in London to promote greater collaboration between businesses and innovators in the development of 5G ecosystems.
The new center, a base for 5G knowledge and skill-sharing, aims to enhance 5G cooperation across the UK and showcase the real-life impact of 5G in the UK and around the world.
Visitors will be able to experience extraordinary real-time and interactive gaming, perform with their favorite bands with the help of virtual and augmented reality and learn about the endless future possibilities made real by 5G technology, such as smart manufacturing and advances in healthcare.
“With the opening of our 5G Innovation and Experience Center in London we, as a leader of 5G, are taking another important step,” said Jerry Wang, CEO of Huawei UK.
“What we have opened will enable true collaboration among UK businesses and technologists and showcase the huge potential of 5G applications for both the private and business sectors.”
Huawei’s Q3 2019 results reported more than 60 signed commercial contracts for 5G with leading global carriers, including all major operators in the UK.
Together with customers and partners, Huawei will speed up digital transformation across various industry sectors worth trillions of dollars, such as public utilities, finance, transportation and electricity.
To mark the occasion, Huawei is hosting a live-stream panel discussion on the future of 5G.
The 5G Innovation and Experience Center sits within Cocoon Global, one of Europe's largest co-working spaces, aimed at bringing together the brightest startups and facilitating the exchange of technology ideas across cultures.
