Talking about Huawei, there's even more it it… pushing aside the US and Australian government-induced obstacles, the giant firm is getting along with some really forward technologies.
According to fresh today's Wireless Watch report, Huawei is darn serious on overtaking all of the competition in the next generation wireless arena. The 30 Gbps 'beyond LTE', or basically over 1,000 times the faster 3.5G wireless networks in existence today, would provide brand new usage models for the mobile devices, not to mention far less of low speed connection problems when many devices congregate around common cell points.
Huawei's holding of 265 key approved specs for the LTE and beyond, as the story says, is a major weapon in hand to control the evolution of the future mobile network data specifications, at the very least. Couple it with fast processors of its own to implement baseband circuitry at the SoC single-chip level, and voila! there come next generation phones and tablets of serious calibre.
What the story didn't mention is that the company is just as well getting along with the 40GE and beyond (100GE) wired Ethernet implementations, including some really nasty fiber optic converters and network solutions, according to our insiders.
The combination of top wireless and top wired technologies makes for an interesting market proposition. One use of such high end networks could be in massive multiparty FullHD videoconferencing, for instance, where Huawei is developing its own implementation of the H.265 next gen higher efficiency protocol for further compressed FullHD video, and up to 30% extra gain over the H.264 with minimal losses, unless you press the 'freeze frame' pause button, where the losses may become, umm, more obvious. But then, video conferencing means a moving video, isn't it?
