Huawei says it has been the largest contributor to LTE standards and patents in the industry since 2010. As of October 2011, Huawei submitted more than 7,900 LTE/EPC (Evolved Packet Core) contributions to 3GPP (3G Partnership Project), including more than 230 approved contributions of LTE Core Specification (RAN 1-RAN3).
Since 2000, Huawei has partnered with key international wireless standardization organizations to drive technology development and the improvement of standards within the industry, including 3GPP, APT(Asia-Pacific Telecommunity), ARIB (Association of Radio Industries and Businesses), ETSI (European Telecommunication Standards Institute), IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force), ITU (International Telecommunication Union), TIA (Telecommunication Industry Association) and WWRF (Wireless World Research Forum). Huawei currently holds significant roles within these organizations, serving 83 key positions, from chairmen and board members to rapporteurs.??
According to the latest Evolution to LTE report released in October by the Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA), out of the 35 commercial LTE networks launched globally, 18 of them use Huawei’s end-to-end SingleRAN LTE solution.
