China’s Huawei Technologies launched the world’s first 5G communications hardware for the automotive industry at this year’s Shanghai Auto Show, said Reuters.
Huawei said in a statement that the 5G communications hardware, the MH5000 module, is based on the Balong 5000 5G chip which it launched in January. “Based on this chip, Huawei has developed the world’s first 5G car module with high speed and high quality,” it said.
“As an important communication product for future intelligent car transportation, this 5G car module will promote the automotive industry to move towards the 5G era,” Huawei said.
The company said the module will aid its plans to start commercializing 5G network technology for the automotive sector in the second half of this year.
