China Mobile develops 5G NR interoperable system

20 Nov 2017

China Mobile, Qualcomm and ZTE have announced they have developed the world's first 5G new radio interoperability data testing system.

The companies completed an interoperability data testing demonstration at China Mobile's 5G Joint Innovation Center using ZTE's pre-commercial 5G base station and Qualcomm's 5G new radio sub 6-GHz prototype.

The end-to-end 5G new radio system operates in the 3.5-GHz band and supports 100MHz of bandwidth.

The system is compliant with the 3GPP Release 15 5G New Radio layer 1 framework, supporting technologies including scalable OFDM numerology as well as advanced channel coding and modulation.

It is designed to achieve multi-Gbps peak data rates at significantly lower air-interface latency than existing 4G networks.

“China Mobile is committed to promoting the unified global 5G standard with industry partners. The achievement of end-to-end 5G NR interoperable connection testing, compliant with the 3GPP 5G NR standard, is an important milestone of 5G standard to productization and pre-commercialization from standard,” China Mobile VP Li Zhengmao said.

“China Mobile is committed to working with other industry leaders including Qualcomm Technologies and ZTE to promote that the 5G products continue to mature and the 5G industry marches to success.”
