Quectel Wireless Solutions, a global supplier of cellular and GNSS modules, reports it has conducted a series of live tests of its 5G NR modules over customer devices in China, North America and Australia. The company says it achieved the data call on live 5G NR Sub-6GHz bands in late October and started to support customers in 5G field tests since early November. In one month, Quectel partnered with global customers and completed multiple live tests over different types of 5G devices including CPE and Always Connected PC (ACPC).

In partnership with Qualcomm, Sichuan Changhong Network Technologies and China Mobile Communications Group (CMCC), Quectel completed the 5G NR data call over a RG500Q-powered CPE on CMCC’s 5G live network between 14 and 16 November at China Mobile Global Partners Conference 2019.

Additionally, at a 2-day expo in Hefei on 25 and 26 November, Quectel worked with LCFC (Hefei) Electronics Technology to carry out multiple tests of a laptop on China Mobile Communications Group’s live 5G NR network. Random tests showed that the laptop delivered a downlink data rate of 649Mbps via Quectel RM500Q module, Quectel said. 

RG500Q and RM500Q are multi-mode Sub-6GHz modules, capable of SA and NSA operation modes. The products support 5G and LTE-A coverage and are designed to power mobile broadband (eMBB) and fixed wireless access (FWA) applications such as CPE, gateways, ACPC as well as live streaming of UHD videos.

Engineering samples of RG500Q and RM500Q are currently available, with commercial shipment following in the first quarter of 2020.
