  • Huawei's 5G demos are the central theme to its booth at the India Mobile Congress 2019 (IMC 2019).
  • As the Indian government mulls over whether or not to let the company participate in its upcoming 5G trials, Huawei is offering to sign a 'no back door' pact to allay concerns.
  • Huawei's 5G solutions include innovations for enhanced security, smart classrooms, smart cities and more.
Huawei has one of the biggest booths at the India Mobile Congress 2019 (IMC 2019) and it's kept 5G as the central theme of its showcase.

After being banned from trading with US companies, Huawei has been facing global resistance over its 5G technology. Both China and US alike delivered their 'preferences' to India over Huawei. But Indian government is keeping uncharacteristically mum over allowing the Chinese tech giant participate in its 5G trials.

"The decision has not been taken yet," stated a Department of Telecommunications (DoT) official.

Huawei's offer of a 'no back door' agreement

Huawei in the meanwhile is carrying on with its efforts to appease the government. It is also willing to sign a 'no back door' pact. This means that Huawei won't have access to any of the customer network's India without prior consent and allay any concerns of cybersecurity vulnerabilities from the vendor.

"From the very beginning, I have confidence that Indian industry, the India market will welcome Huawei because I have contributed a lot with my unique value," Jay Chen, CEO of Huawei India, told Reuters. "I am ready to sign (a no-backdoor agreement)," he added.

Huawei claims that giving telecom companies an all-powerful network, enabling industrial digitisation and enhancing the consumer experience are the main goals of Huawei's 5G deployment.

Here's a look at all the ways Huawei is pushing 5G at the IMC 2019:

5G smart cities

5G smart cities

Huawei’s Intelligent Operation Center (IOC) — a solution for smart cities in India — collects data from all the different subsystems of a city. It aggregates the data, cleans it up and analyses the results.

The results display the overall status of the city and also gives advice on decision making.

It also allows urban managers to gauge real-time resource management and keep an eye on the level of resources available in a city.

In case of an emergency, it also allows for integration between service types — like call centers, GIS map, command centers as well as video and voice calling.

5G AI powered safe city

Huawei also has its Intelligent City Surveillance solutions on display. Using a combination of artificial intelligence (AI) enabled cameras, the system can cover specific areas which may be vulnerable.

It can track for intrusions, spot an abandoned object, identify when there’s theft is in progress, and look out for suspicious movement.

5G airports

5G airports

5G airports could be a boon or a bane but either way, the technology is available and on display at IMC 2019. Using Huawei’s 5G network and AI solution, airports will be able to manage passenger flow and flight flow scenarios to optimise travel operations.

Smart airport solutions will collect the required data using facial recognition technology allowing for self-service check-in, hierarchical security check, smart navigation, last call, in-flight passenger management, paperless luggage service and more.

These services will run on Huawei’s indoor 5G technology that the company has dubbed ‘Wi-Fi 6’. It can support over 200 concurrent connections while maintaining high throughput — which means more bandwidth per user.

Huawei believes the Wi-Fi 6 solution can also be applied to virtual reality (VR), 4K video content streaming, self-driving cars, and any high-intensity outdoor venues — like a cricket match or a conference.

5G smart education and remote classroom

Huawei’s Cloudlink Board allows for smart classrooms to allow for interactive but remote teaching. Using a combination of 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data and AI, Huawei’s remote classroom solution can also analyse student behaviour and share educational resources.

The company also believes that the solution can improve the quality of teaching.
