Huawei and TELUS are helping the City of Vancouver meet its goal of becoming the worlds’ greenest city by 2020 by providing network capacity and speed that will enable “smart city” and other sustainability-focused technology initiatives. The companies have signed a memorandum of understanding to establish a 5G Living Lab in downtown Vancouver, which will test approaches to deliver a next-generation converged fiber-wireless network. Credit: Huawei To support this Living Lab, Huawei will be making a significant investment to design, test and deploy ground-breaking new technologies, leading towards the development of next-generation 5G based telecommunications networks. TELUS recently invested $1-billion to expand its fiber optic network in Vancouver, which will ultimately provide the backbone to support highly efficient and lightning-fast wireless speeds as the development road maps for wireless and wireline networks converge around 5G concepts. “TELUS is recognized globally as one of the world’s most advanced telecommunications operators” said Ken Hu, Co-CEO, Huawei. “The opportunity to partner with TELUS to deploy innovative new technologies is critical to our global 5G research and development process and positions TELUS on the leading edge of next-generation telecommunications technology deployment.” “This project will bring some of the most cutting-edge telecommunications technology available today to Vancouver, building upon our recently announced billion dollar investment to introduce fiber optic technology and further reinforcing our commitment to the city,” said Eros Spadotto, Executive Vice President of Technology Strategy for TELUS. “Working with Huawei, our efforts will lay the groundwork for delivering a converged fiber-wireless network with the potential to deliver dramatically faster wireless speeds, thereby improving citizens’ lives and generating significant new social, educational and economic opportunities. In addition, it will help all levels of government to build a greener, more inclusive and globally competitive Vancouver.” “There is a natural partnership between British Columbia and Shenzhen,” said Premier of British Columbia Christy Clark. “We both host thriving tech and communications sectors, and are fortunate to work with companies like Huawei and TELUS on investments to expand and upgrade ICT infrastructure with the latest technology.” Huawei’s innovative information and communications technology (ICT) solutions, products and services have been deployed in over 170 countries and regions, serving more than one third of the world’s population.
