Chinese telecom giant Huawei is unveiling technological innovations that will revolutionize artificial intelligence (AI), 5G and the user experience. On Wednesday, the group announced the original innovation as part of its biennial awards, including “Expanding the Innovation Landscape 2022’s Top 10 Innovations”. The forum was held at its headquarters in Shenzhen, China.
The award is intended to recognize innovations that have the potential to create new series of products, become significant commercial features of existing products, or create significant value for business and industry.
The award-winning innovations at the event are varied. We record, among other things, an adverbial neural network that significantly reduces energy consumption and the surface of circuits into an “optical iris”, which makes it possible to uniquely detect optical fibers.
It is designed to reduce the time and cost associated with broadband deployment as well as make it easier for carriers to manage network resources.
The Telecoms Group’s declaration falls within the context of intellectual property rights, the protection of which is essential to the technology ecosystem, for the participating companies.
“In order to protect innovation, we must protect intellectual property,” said Song Luping, Huawei’s chief legal officer, who said he was excited about the company’s patent licensing and sharing its innovations to share its technologies worldwide.
It will help expand the landscape of innovation, move the industry forward and advance technology for all, he added.
“Huawei is constantly changing itself and showing the world the value of Chinese intellectual property,” said Tian Lipu, China Chapter of the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property.
By the end of 2021, Huawei has held more than 110,000 active patents, with more than 45,000 patents spread across families. The group, which has granted more patents than any other Chinese company, has filed the most patent applications with the European Patent Office and ranks 5th in terms of new patents granted in the United States.
With its advanced technical research, the company ranks first in the world for the fifth year in a row in patent applications under the Patent Cooperation Agreement (PCT).
Alan Fan, head of Huawei’s DPI division, said the industry strongly recognizes the group’s patent value, especially in general standards such as cellular technology, Wi-Fi and audio / video codecs.
In the last five years, Huawei has received more than 2 billion smartphone licenses for 4G / 5G patents. The company actively works with patent licensing companies to issue “one-stop” licenses for core values.
“In the case of cars, about 8 million connected cars protected by Huawei patents are delivered to customers each year,” Fan said. The group discusses joint licensing programs for 5G patents with experts and leading industry patent holders.
“More than 260 companies, totaling 1 billion devices, have received HEVC patent licenses from Huawei through a patent pool,” he said, adding that the company is in talks to establish a new patent pool “to give the industry faster access to patents.” [de Huawei] For global Wi-Fi devices. “
For Manuel Desantes, former vice-president of the European Patent Office, “the intellectual property system needs to ensure that the creations that deserve to be protected bring real value.”
Each year, Huawei reinvests more than 10% of its revenue into research and development. Over the past few years, the company has invested more than 20 billion yuan in basic research each year.
In 2021, the company grew its research and development (reaching CNY 142.7 billion) or 22.4% of its total revenue. Over the past decade, total investment has exceeded 845 billion yuan.
