Article | March 21, 2020

The coronavirus pandemic and its ongoing consequences have given us all plenty to think about and worry about. But there’s one thing you can permanently take off your concern list: 5G has no causal connection to COVID-19, contrary to several recent misguided online rumors. In fact, according to a seven-year-long scientific study published just this month, 5G has no detrimental health effects in general. But it’s worth examining why 5G can’t possibly be related to the coronavirus from a scientific and factual perspective and why it isn’t a health concern in general. Plus, along the way, you might learn a little bit more about how 5G and cellphones work

Huawei: AR Needs 5G, 5G needs AR

Article | July 6, 2021

Without a robust 5G network, carriers will not be able to take full advantage of new business opportunities surrounding augmented reality (AR). This was the bottom-line message from Huawei’s recent Better World Summit (BWS), which turned the spotlight on “5G+AR.” How the network is designed is another key consideration. If AR headsets are to become lighter and cheaper, offloading compute processing to the network edge and cloud — over stable and low-latency 5G connections — is essential. It is why Huawei advocates a partnership approach, spanning AR collaboration in all three areas: 5G networks, devices, and content. The prize of getting these sorts of partnerships ‘right’ is huge. According to Huawei, working in tandem with a third-party research institute, the AR market will reach a hefty $300 billion with 1.2 billion users by 2025.
