Huawei completes second-phase 5G R&D test

Thursday 28 September 2017 | 06:52 CET | News
Huawei has completed the entire second phase of 5G technology R&D test organized by the IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group. The results obtained during the test were showcased at the PT/Expo China 2017. According to Huawei, using 200 MHz bandwidth on the C-band, the downlink cell peak rate exceeded 32 Gbps. In this second-phase test, Huawei integrated 5G New Radio (NR) services, including f-OFDM, new frame structure, new codes (such as Polar Code), new parameter sets, Massive MIMO, and SCMA. 

The 5G-oriented core network and access network were the first to pass verification. During the second-phase test, Huawei provided isolated network slices from 5G NR to networks using one set of telecom infrastructure. At the test location in Huairou District, Beijing, over 100 channels of 4K video were streamed in vehicle-mounted mobile scenarios, showcasing a superior experience for future C-band eMBB.

During the second-phase test, Huawei completed the device-pipe interoperability test in partnership with NTT Docomo and MediaTek. Huawei is proactively exploring key services during the 5G technology R&D test, which includes partnering with vertical industries to apply 5G to remotely controlled driving of vehicles and drones, holographic calls, smart manufacturing, and other use cases. According to Huawei, the second-phase test results of 5G Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) showed that 5G will further help operators enable new smart use cases, such as at a campus, stadium, and office environment.
