Huawei and China Mobile are showcasing the 5G 3.5GHz prototype, 5G above 6GHz high band prototype, 5G network slicing solution, 5G smart car use case solution, together with other 5G innovations in Mobile World Congress Shanghai (MWC Shanghai) 2016.
5G Joint Innovations of Huawei and China Mobile
The 5G 3.5GHz prototype showed this year is the first pre-commercial engineering prototype compact with large capacity designed on C-Band, the promising 5G band for wide coverage in China and most other parts of the world.
This is also one of the important milestones of the 5G collaboration between Huawei and China Mobile. Huawei and China Mobile plan for further system function and performance validations on C-Band, and to be well prepared in the industrialization and pre-commercialization of 5G system facilities.
As its strategic partner for long, Huawei has been actively participated in China Mobile’s 5G Innovation programs. According to the key technical specifications China Mobile required, experts from both parties have been cooperated in areas such as 5G standardization, prototype development, technical verification and field trial.
In 2013, Huawei and China Mobile started cooperation in the area of 5G typical use cases development and research in 5G key technologies.
In June 2015, Huawei and China Mobile have signed 5G strategic cooperation MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) in Beijing, China. It is expected that Huawei and China Mobile, together with other leading industrial partners, will accelerate the commercialization of 5G key technologies and promote 5G unified global standard, through endeavors of long term joint research and development.
In February 2016, during MWC 2016 in Barcelona, Spain, Huawei has been invited as one of the key members to join the China Mobile 5G Joint Innovation Centre. Huawei and China Mobile will further strengthen their cooperation to promote the success of 5G commercialization, and work closely in areas of research and development of fundamental communication, internet of things, smart car, smart factory, cloud robotics and VR/AR.
