The award-winning inventions include a neural viper network that dramatically reduces power consumption and circuit area and an advanced optical iris that provides a unique identifier for optical fibers designed to help carriers manage their network resources, enabling broadband in one more time distributed.

The announcement comes in the context of intellectual property rights, which Huawei believes are critical to protect and share wisely within the tech ecosystem.

“Protecting IP is key to protecting innovation,” said Huawei chief legal officer Song Liuping.

“We are eager to license our patents and technologies to share our innovations with the world.

“This will help broaden the innovation landscape, advance our industry, and advance technology for everyone.”

By the end of 2021, Huawei owned more than 110,000 active patents spanning more than 45,000 patent families.

Furthermore, the company has more patents granted than any other Chinese company.

It also has the most patent applications filed with the EU Patent Office and ranks fifth in new patents granted in the United States.

Huawei has been the world’s number one for five years in terms of patent cooperation treaty applications.

“Huawei is constantly changing itself and showing the world the value of IP from China,” said Tian Lipu, chairman of the China branch of the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property.

Alan Fan, head of Huawei’s IPR department, said the value of Huawei patents had received widespread recognition in the industry, especially in mainstream standards such as mobile technology, Wi-Fi, and audio/video codecs.

“Over two billion smartphones have been licensed under Huawei’s 4G/5G patents in the past five years. And for cars, about eight million connected vehicles licensed under Huawei patents are delivered to consumers yearly,” Fan said.

In addition, Huawei takes a proactive approach to patent licensing by partnering with license management companies to provide one-stop licensing for mainstream standards.

“More than 260 companies representing a billion devices have obtained Huawei’s HEVC patent licenses through a patent pool,” Fan added.

Fan also says the company is discussing the creation of a new patent pool to simplify the industry’s access to Huawei’s patents for Wi-Fi devices worldwide.

In addition, Huawei is discussing joint 5G patent licensing programs with licensing experts and other leading patent holders in the industry.

“We look forward to seeing Huawei continue to engage in high-level global competition with innovation at its core.” World Intellectual Property Organization Office China Director Liu Hua says.

Former Vice President of the European Patent Office Manuel Desantes notes that given the sheer number of changes in the world today, the number of registered patents or inventions no longer matters.

“The IP system has to ensure that the creations that deserve protection are the ones that add value,” says Desantes.

This event was Huawei’s third event to focus on innovation and IP, and the company invests more than 10% of its sales revenue in research and development.
