Huawei has announced it has completed verification testing for a series of new technologies and functions due to be introduced in the 3GPP Release 16 5G phase 2 standards.
The company has tested and verified ultra-reliable and low latency communications (URLLC) scenarios including cellular vehicle to everything (C-V2X), as well as massive machine type communication (mMTC) and enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB).
The C-V2X test involved a roadside unit and mobile edge computing technologies in a self-driving vehicle scenario including reacting to a car in front conducting an emergency lane change.
Video signals were sent to a vehicle-to-everything control center to make a decision such as implementing a lane change or braking, and transmitted back to the vehicle as instructions.
Meanwhile mMTC involved using 5G NR for uplink to enable video enabled services over 5G networks as well as 5G-enabled AI on university campuses.
“Currently, the formation of 5G standards is at a critical juncture. June 2018 is a pivotal moment in history with the formation of standalone (SA) standards and the release of R15,” Huawei said in a statement.
“It also serves as a great starting point for researches on R16 study items and work items. December 2019 is expected to see the completion of a full set of 5G standards meeting all ITU. Huawei is fully committed to preparing for the finalization of R16 standards and supporting the standardization of 5G enhanced technologies.”
