The 5G Implementation Level (Stan wdrożenia 5G)
Date: 27 April 2021
Speaker: Aleksander Jakubczak (Huawei Poland)
5G is another step of mobile technology development, allowing for faster data transmission with almost no delays. The use of 5G will make it possible to develop more advanced technological solutions such as self-driving cars, the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Virtual Reality.
The implementation of 5G in Poland is planned for the next couple of years. Although the implementation of this complex socio-economic process will be challenging, it will allow for automation of the work force and the shift of human capital from low-value-added professions and activities to high-value-added industries.
Since 2012 Huawei has been the world’s biggest manufacturer of telecommunication devices and significant global scale producer of hardware and IT solutions.
It ranks among the pioneers of 5G, consistently developing innovative, comprehensive solutions with a view of building a world of intelligent connections. The company has already opened 11 5G R&D centers around the world. The coronavirus pandemic has inhibited the implementation of the 5G network in Poland on the first of the target frequencies, which is why this step is planned to be made only in 2021. However, this does not change the fact that the topic of 5G still raises a lot of controversy and questions.
On 27th of April Aleksander Jakubczak – the director of 5G solutions in Huawei Poland talked about the benefits of 5G technology and the gradual global implementation process. The event was organised by: (1) Warsaw-Beijing Forum, (2) Huawei Poland, (3) Students’ Organization for Law and Economy of China
