JOHANNESBURG – HUAWEI, Ericsson and Nokia have emerged as the top three global 5G radio access network (RAN) vendors.

This is according to a report by Strategy Analytics, a global technology and media analyst agency.

Huawei is ranked as the leader in terms of equipment performance, portfolio of radio access network products, contribution to industry standards, research and development (R&D) investment and delivery capabilities.

According to the report made available to CAJ News titled “Comparison and 2023 5G Global Market Potential for leading 5G RAN Vendors – Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia”, the three global vendors are leading in commercializing 5G, and compared with other vendors, Huawei’s 5G network is faster and lower latency.

The figure is 1,38 Gbit/s for Ericsson and 1,15 Gbit/s for Nokia.

In the air interface latency test, the test results of Ericsson and Nokia are 3,5 ms and 3,8 ms respectively.

Huawei’s user plane delay is 2 ms. In the standalone (SA) scenario, Huawei’s peak downlink rate of a single cell reaches 14,58 Gbit/s, which is nearly three times that of Ericsson.

Nokia has not completed the test.

In announcing its results for the first quarter of 2019, last week, Huawei disclosed it had signed 40 commercial contracts for 5G with leading global carriers and had shipped more than 70 000 5G base stations to markets worldwide.

The results show that the company’s Q1 sales rose 39 percent from a year earlier to US$26,7 billion (R374.4 billion), and its net profit margin was about 8 percent, slightly higher than last year.
