Huawei Technologies and China Mobile Research Institute- the China Mobile Shanghai jointly established the 5G trail field to verify 5G High Band and Low Band Coordination Technology at Huawei Shanghai R&D Center. This field can meet the requirement of the verification to the 5G systematic prototype, and possess the capability to verify the 5G network performance and key technology with a high degree of simulation in real network.
Furthermore, this field also can be used to showcase the innovative experience of the new service enabled by the future 5G technology. Therefore, the establishment of the field is of great importance to promote the maturity of the 5G technology and industry. After the completion of the 5G trial field which includes seven sites of the 5G low band with continuous coverage as planned will meet the technological prerequisite to test and verify the 5G use cases before the commercial launch of 5G.
The test result which Huawei and China Mobile Research Institute jointly performed demonstrated that the average user data rate can reach to 1.7 Gbps with a bandwidth of 200MHz on the low frequency. Meantime, with the prerequisite of the high reliability, the high reliability, mmWave frequency technology can improve the network capacity in hot-spot effectively on dual connectivity mode with both 5G low-frequency and millimetre wave network. The 5G dual connectivity network can provide 18Gpbs for single user peak throughput.
On the other hand, the 5G trial field can provide the capability of high bandwidth, low latency, to support the upload to the ultra-high resolution streetscape taken by 360 panorama camera. And, accordingly, the end user can enjoy the immersive organoleptic experience in real-time which produced by the 5G trial network via the VR terminal remotely.
China Mobile and Huawei keep the collaboration on the 5G technology research and industry all along. Both sides will continue verifying the 5G key technology and use cases, follow-up, investing on the construction in large scale to meet the verification requirement of the 5G innovative technology and producing the new use cases emerging in large numbers. This will positively contribute to the 5G global standardisation and the development of the industry.
Moreover, Huawei and China Mobile, companying with vertical industries undoubtedly perform the test of 5G automotive network using the 5G high bandwidth and low latency, such as the Tele-operated Driving(ToD), to explore the digital transformation road of all the vertical industries enabled by 5G.
The speedup of the 5G standardisation is ongoing, and the first version of the 3GPP 5G standard will be completed by the middle of 2018. Huawei recently completed the second phase R&D 5G test in China.
