China Mobile, Intel and Huawei take the lead in completing R15-based 5G interoperability testing

China World Mobile (CWW) China Mobile, Intel and Huawei announced that the three parties have jointly completed the 5G Interoperability Test (IODT), which is a full protocol stack, full channel, full-process interoperability test based on the latest 3GPP Release 15 5G NR standard. It means that 5G network equipment and 5G test terminals from different manufacturers can not only perform functional tests, but also further implement 5G service testing, and support rich mobile broadband new experiences such as ultra high definition video and VR, to end-to-end systems. The business has taken a critical step.


The test was conducted at China Mobile Research Institute. Based on the C-band defined by the 5G standard, combined with the latest 3D-MIMO multi-antenna and beamforming technology, China Mobile, Intel and Huawei took the lead in successfully validating the 3GPP 5G standard. Huawei's 5G commercial base station and Intel's third-generation 5G mobile business platform (MTP), through the use of 64T64R 3D-MIMO technology base station, and Intel 2T4R terminal, downlink data transmission rate of 1.5Gbps, and 8K ultra-high-definition video, Business presentations such as VR.

This year, China Mobile announced the 5G 5G pilot program, which will plan 500 sites in five major cities, including Beijing and Hangzhou, for 5G testing. These are inseparable from the support of commercial terminals. Vice President Huang Yuhong of China Mobile Research Institute expressed full affirmation of the progress of the test: "The success of this interoperability test can provide more types of test terminals for China Mobile to carry out 5G scale trials this year, which is a large 5G pre-commercial network. Scale verification provides equipment support. China Mobile will release the first version of 5G commercial products this year, and the first batch of pre-commercial terminals will be launched in 2019, which will play an important role in home broadband, industry video, intelligent manufacturing and other fields."


Asha Keddy, vice president and vice president of next-generation network and standards division, said: "After the completion of the 3GPP 5G R15 standard, we are working hard to accelerate the commercialization of 5G. Therefore, Intel has been actively working with industry-leading companies to prepare for Commercial Intel XMMTM 8000 series 5G multi-mode chipset in 2019. China will become the early leader of 5G, and Intel's cooperation with China Mobile and Huawei will be through end-to-end solutions, from the network to the cloud, to the client. Accelerate the commercialization of 5G."


Yang Chaobin, president of Huawei 5G products, said, "This interoperability test based on 3GPP 5G NR will further promote the commercialization of 5G. The R15 standard has been fully completed, and Huawei is actively working with operators and partners to accelerate the 3GPP-based end. The maturity of the end industry will promote the development of the 5G industry and help operators achieve 5G commercial success."
