Orange and ZTE demo various 5G applications in Spain

ZTE and Orange bring 5G connectivity to Spain
ZTE and Orange bring 5G connectivity to Spain
Although ZTE is also affected by various bans similar to those imposed by the US on Huawei, this Chinese brand seems to be doing all right in Spain. Yesterday, Orange and its Chinese partner have shown various 5G applications at the Global 5G Event and the European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC) in Valencia.

Leaving aside the conspiracy theories that place Russia at the bottom of the current "world vs. Huawei and ZTE" war, one thing is certain: no matter who wins in the long run, keeping these two tech giants out of the 5G game will only slow down the implementation of this next-gen technology in many markets. Fortunately, it looks like Spain is not one of them.

Yesterday, Orange and ZTE demoed multiple 5G applications at the Global 5G Event and the European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC) in Valencia. The list of tests included the following:

  • 5G remote driving (with the use of multiple high-definition cameras installed in the vehicle).
  • Remote control of robotic arms (single camera, but involving complex movement capture/recognition/processing).
  • Real-time streaming of HD news programs and 4K 360-degree video content.

Unfortunately, ZTE is not doing great in all countries. In the US, the well-known Massachusetts Institute of Technology has decided to cut its ties with the Chinese company back in April. Australia and Japan are currently forbidding ZTE from being involved in 5G rollouts. Last year, after breaching a US trade embargo with Iran, ZTE was the subject of a ban that kept them away from buying US components. After agreeing to pay a tranche of a US$1.4 billion fine, ZTE was allowed to get US components once again.

These being said, do you think that having Huawei and ZTE out of the 5G game in a certain market can cause a major delay on the implementation of this new technology or not? If you were in charge of some remote country without its own 5G equipment makers, what brand would you choose to replace Huawei and ZTE?

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
