Tsinghua University considers it the first project in the industry built entirely with domestic technology. Additionally, according to Xinhua News AgencyThe report posted on Tsinghua University’s website also emphasized Huawei’s contribution.
In August, Huawei caused a stir when it released a 5G smartphone with a sophisticated processor, an entirely domestic product.
However, in February this year, Huawei’s global rival Nokia Corporation (headquartered in Finland) also announced that it had achieved speeds of 1.2 terabit per second over a 118 km long fiber optic cable line across Asia and Europe.
