Huawei, a Chinese technological behemoth, intends to launch two satellites with two Chinese partners in July this year to validate the 6G network technologies that Huawei has pioneered in global research and development (R & R&D).
The satellite launch, which was carried out with the cooperation of Chinese network operator China Mobile and a national space firm about which no details have been revealed, has great significance for China’s core technologies such as networking and switching, according to a post on Friday by an independent digital blogger named Chang’an Shumajun, who claims to have close ties with Huawei.
A Huawei spokesman told the Global Times on Saturday that he had not yet had such information.
China Mobile had not commented to the Global Times as of press time.
According to Ma Jihua, a senior tech industry expert headquartered in Beijing, the satellite transfer is logical as Huawei presses forward with its 6G network architecture, which is 50 times faster than 5G.
