Chinese  ICT solutions giant Huawei has secured five awards for its cutting-edge technology and inventions in the recently-concluded Mobile World Congress (MWC 2021) held in Barcelona, said a release.

This year, the Global System for Mobile Communications Association (GSMA) announced the winners of the 2021 Global Mobile (GLOMO) Awards.

Huawei bagged awards in five categories - Best Innovation for COVID-19 Pandemic Response & Recovery, Outstanding Mobile Contribution to the UN SDGs, Best Mobile Innovation in Emerging Markets, Best Mobile Innovation for the Connected Economy, and Best Mobile Infrastructure.

Introduced in 1996 by the GSMA and judged by a panel of more than 250 global mavens, the Global Mobile (GLOMO) Award is widely regarded as the highest honor within the mobile industry. In this year’s edition, the telemedicine solution for COVID-19 developed by the China-Japan Friendship Hospital  based on Huawei’s 5G network solutions won GSMA GLOMO’ Best Innovation for COVID-19 Pandemic Response & Recovery’. This high-end technology provided by Huawei has helped the hospital to scale up patient services and assist more than 5,000 hospitals across China.

Marvin Chen, President of Huawei DIS Product Line, said, on winning this award, “5G is seeing large-scale application in healthcare. Huawei will continue to innovate 5G solutions together with the healthcare industry to develop 5G applications that can help fight the pandemic and get more value out of 5G.”

Again, at a time when the whole world is experiencing the negative impacts of climate change, Rainforest Connection (RFCx) and Huawei’s “Nature Guardian” project has contributed positively to protect nature, prevent deforestation, and safeguard against biodiversity loss. As a recognition, this project has been honored with the GSMA 2021 GLOMO for Outstanding Mobile Contribution to the UN SDGs.

Huawei also bagged the ‘Best Mobile Innovation in Emerging Markets’ award of GSMA GLOMO for its industry-first integrated access and backhaul solution (RuralStar Pro), which has superseded traditional costly transmission modes of optical fiber, microwave, and satellite.
