In terms of cars, about 8 million connected vehicles licensed to use Huawei’s 4G or 5G patents are being delivered to consumers every year.

It is said that the value of Huawei patents has seen wide recognition in the industry, especially in mainstream standards such as cellular technology, Wi-Fi and audio/video functionality. Huawei has signed patent licensing agreements with manufacturers in the sectors of smart phones, connected cars, network technology, Internet of Things and smart homes, and is also proactively establishing partnerships with patent licensing companies to provide "one-stop" licensing for mainstream standards.
