Huawei's main exhibition booth in MWC Barcelona's Hall 1 is designed around the concept of "Intelligent Future, Full of Hope". At the booth, Huawei painted a picture of an era fueled by the digital economy and defined by collaborations that are vibrant and filled with unlimited possibilities. At the event, Huawei will also showcase its latest products and solutions that deliver ultimate 5G experiences, premium and intelligent ultra-broadband connectivity, digital and intelligent transformation, and their Green 1-2-3 solutions. Huawei's offerings show a clear commitment to innovate in the 5.5G era, creating value for customers and stimulating the digital economy.
By the end of 2022, 5G had already proven to be a global and commercial success, with over a billion mobile users connecting with 5G. Leading operators in China, South Korea, Switzerland, Finland, and Kuwait have already achieved 5G user penetration rates of more than 30%, and more than 30% of their traffic now comes from 5G. According to Ookla's latest 5G City Benchmark Report, Huawei has played an important part in 5G network construction in all of the top 10 cities among the world's 40 representative 5G-enabled cities. It's important to note that 5G performance results in these 10 cities show that the 5G networks constructed by Huawei offer the best experience.
Following on from Huawei's concept of "Striding Towards the 5.5G Era" that was proposed in July 2022, Huawei is highlighting the five major characteristics of the 5.5G era: 1) 10 Gbps experiences, 2) full-scenario interconnection, 3) integrated sensing and communication, 4) L4 autonomous driving networks, and 5) green ICT. Leading global operators, standards organizations, and industry ecosystem partners are coming together to promote innovation and exploration for this 5.5G era, as it will create more new applications and business opportunities.
Ongoing and robust investment into ICT infrastructure directly spurs growth within the digital economy. A third-party report shows that as new networks evolve from one generation to another, this effect will be further amplified by 15%. Looking towards the future, we believe the GUIDE business blueprint that combines both 5G and 5.5G clearly lays out how ICT evolution will progress and bring about greater value. Together with our customers and partners, we will continue to innovate, building intelligent connectivity and redefining computing. This collaboration on innovation will create even greater value for the ICT industry and make the industry as a whole more resilient and prosperous.
Huawei's Enterprise division is also hosting their own event at MWC 2023. Themed "Leading Digital Infrastructure for New Value Together", they will launch more than 50 innovative products and solutions for global customers. Highlights here include their Intelligent Simplified Campus Network Solution, a series of innovative data center solutions, and business strategies for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
In the device field, Huawei is showcasing their new HUAWEI Mate 50 series, HUAWEI WATCH Buds, and HUAWEI WATCH GT Cyber, which comes packed with new innovations in areas like mobile imaging, fitness and health, and smart office.
MWC Barcelona 2023 runs from 27 February to 2 March in Barcelona, Spain. Huawei will showcase its products and solutions. Together with global operators, industry professionals, and opinion leaders, we will dive into topics such as 5G business success, 5.5G opportunities, green development, digital transformation, and our vision of using the GUIDE business blueprint to lay the foundation for 5.5G and build on the success of 5G for even greater prosperity.
