Cambridge University refuses to obey the British government and continues its 5G cooperation with Huawei
Cambridge Wireless, a telecommunications research organization, refused to succumb to the political consensus in the UK and partnered with Huawei to form the latest 5G joint venture.
They will build a private 5G network in Cambridge Science Park owned by the University of Cambridge. Its purpose is to provide a test environment for the CW community so that they can use things such as self-driving cars, clean energy, and remote surgery with the support of 5G technology.
“We have been working hard to provide value to CW members,” said CW Chief Executive Simon Mead (Simon Mead). “As home to the most advanced R&D ecosystem in the world, Cambridge is in a perfect position to lead the launch of next-generation wireless technology, and we are very pleased to promote this initiative with our partners.
“We hope to bring something unique to the science park to accelerate the application cases and development of this technology.” We invite aspiring companies to participate, and through the exciting three-year cooperation with Huawei, we will support Their journey of 5G innovation. “
Victor Zhang, Vice President of Huawei, said: “The Cambridge Ecosystem is recognized as a global technology leader. We are very happy to collaborate with talents and vision in this ecosystem.” “We hope to allow Cambridge Wireless members to use our most advanced equipment and The market has reached new heights, including China and other countries.
Our commitment to the UK and the industry remains the same. We will continue to provide our partners with our expertise and technology to promote connections and innovation.”
As the last part of Victor Zhang’s comment confirmed, there are political factors in this move. This allows Huawei to make the above statement and make it clear that it does not need a government position to maintain its position in the 5G market in UK.
