5G on the surface seems to be the network speed, deployment scale of the competition, in fact, the core is the standard and patent match. According to IPlytics statistics as of September, Huawei holds the absolute commanding heights of the global 5G SEP patents with a whopping 3,325 applications, with Samsung 2,846 in second place, LG 2463 third, and Nokia Alcatel,ZTE, Ericsson, Qualcomm and Intel.
Of course, the review of intellectual property works is quite a long process, and Huawei is currently less than half of the adoption. In terms of authorized approvals, Samsung and Nokia are in one or two places, while LG and Huawei are in third and fourth place.
In addition to standard patents, Huawei, the world’s largest telecommunications equipment company, is also proud of its rivals in the shipment of 5G base stations. According to public data, Huawei has signed more than 60 5G contracts with British companies to ship 400,000 5G base stations.
Huawei is expected to produce 1.5 million base stations next year, doubling from this year, and selling 2 million base stations over the next two years, including products that do not use U.S. components at all.
