GUANGZHOU -- Huawei Technologies has set up a fifth-generation wireless research and development center in the U.K., amid an ongoing debate over whether the Chinese company's equipment should be allowed in British 5G infrastructure.

The 5G Innovation and Experience Center, which opened Monday in London, aims to promote 5G-related R&D by local companies. It also gives consumers demonstrations of services enabled by the superfast, low-lag technology, such as cloud-based gaming and telemedicine.
