Huawei and Telefónica have signed an MOU to undertake joint evaluation and research on 5G network development. Both firms will work on the requirements of a 5G network environment including new architecture, key air interface technology, performance evaluation and prototype verification.

Huawei is also engaged in strategic cooperation with many of the world's top operators, including China Mobile, Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom, Japan's NTT DoCoMo, Korea operators LG U+, KT amongst others. Huawei said the company will team up with more partners in the industry to build the emerging 5G ecosystem and push forward the development of 5G. 

Enrique Blanco, Group CTO, Telefonica 
Telefónica doesn´t want the 5G networks start-up to be a specific single event, but rather a process which we want to begin right now.

David Wang, President, Huawei Wireless Product Line
Telefónica has profound understanding of needs from the most valuable and profitable markets and subtle insights into the future trends of these needs. Huawei now is investing a tremendous research effort into the 5G key enabling technology.
