(Yicai Global) April 24 -- Shenzhen's telecom giant Huawei Technologies is planning to launch its first public fifth-generation wireless network lab in Seoul in mid-May, an industry insider told Yicai Global.
Huawei will demonstrate the use of 5G technologies in smart cities, factories, homes as well as innovative products, an unnamed person in the South Korean communications sector told Yicai Global.
Huawei is working with South Korean mobile operator LG Uplus to provide 5G base station equipment to the latter, the same source said, adding that more cooperation with other players in the sector such as SK Telecom and KT may be on its way.
Huawei and one South Korean operator have been in preliminary talks about collaboration, the South Korean firm that wanted to stay unnamed told Yicai Global upon inquiry.
