Huawei, MediaTek complete 5G NR interoperability testing

2017-09-12 13:57:42 |

Huawei and MediaTek report they have completed the Interoperability Development Testing (IODT) of 5G New Radio (NR) in the condition of enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) and Ultra Density Network (UDN) scenarios, reports Telecompaper on September 11, 2017. The test is part of China’s second-phase 5G radio technology testing in Huairou District, Beijing.
Within this IODT test, the test system consists of the 5G base station from Huawei operating on the (3.5GHz) C-Band frequency carrier and 5G new terminals from MediaTek. This test used the 5G NR key technologies as Massive MIMO and the new coding technologies of Polar Code and Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) Code. In the eMBB scenario, the downlink throughput for a single user can exceed 5Gbps, and its peak downlink throughput can reach higher than 8Gbps with a bandwidth of 200 MHz on the 3.4GHz~3.6GHz range. Meanwhile, the traffic density exceeds 70Mbps per square meter in the UDN scenario.
The second-phase 5G R&D system verification was launched in September 2016 to promote global 5G standardization, accelerate 5G prototype developments, and build the 5G industry chain. The IMT-2020(5G) Promotion Group requires that the system vendor should complete the IODT test in an eMBB scenario with the chipset or instrumental company. At the same time, it requires using the common specification of equipment and test, and the IODT test should be conducted following approved new numerology and frame structure complying with 3GPP 5G NR. Additionally, before the IMT-2020(5G) Summit this June, Huawei had already completed IODT focusing on the baseband process with cooperative chipset companies.
