Huawei is the world's first wireless communication innovation in 2020

A new report showed that from the year until October 2020, the Chinese company Huawei ranked first in the world in terms of the number of patent applications for wireless communications, even in the face of the Corona epidemic and due to the impact of US export restrictions, the company carried out research and development to keep pace.

Headquartered in Shenzhen, China, the company filed 8,607 wireless patents with US chip maker Qualcomm between January 1 and October 30, which obtained 5,807 patents. The Chinese incoPat was also in the top 100 companies on Thursday, and the Chinese smartphone maker Oppo ranked third with 5,353 patents.

By country, both China and the United States hold 32% of the patent pending, followed by Japan (15%) and South Korea (7%). “The list is based on general patent data in the wireless field, including: 5G networks,” IncoPat said.

The report states: `` As a major area of ​​modern communication, wireless technology has always been a very important part of the fifth generation of research and development. He added, "With the new technological competition and the new globalization situation, wireless communication network technology has become an important strategic option for the company in the face of international competition."

Patents, especially those related to new technologies such as 5G networks and artificial intelligence, play an important role in determining which companies and countries will enjoy special advantages in the "economy of tomorrow."

A previous report by Strategy Analytics, a research and consulting firm, said that in addition to the pending patents, Huawei is also making pioneering contributions to the 5G network in 3GPP, an umbrella international organization. To develop communication standards and perform better than its European competitors. Rivals Ericsson and Qualcomm. This year.

This year, 3GPP (version 16) defined version 16, which is the next step in the 5G standard that includes a number of new applications such as: b. Autonomous driving, smart factories, and remote surgery on site. the health.

The United States is concerned about Beijing's economic development and national security concerns. In the past year, they have escalated their technological war with China, which could sever economic ties between the two countries in many regions and open up the prospect of double standards for many new technologies.

Meanwhile, China continues to vigorously promote the development of 5G networks, as the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced earlier this month that China had built nearly 700,000 stations. The basis for 5G networks in 2020 and surpasses the original goal of 1 million.
