Ericsson, Intel Complete 5G 3.5GHz End-to-End IoT in China

Ericsson

Ericsson and Intel have successfully completed the 5G 3.5GHz multi-vendor end-to-end Interoperability Developmental Test (IoDT) at a 5G field test in the Chinese capital of Beijing. The 5G technology research and development test on 3.5GHz is being led by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT).

According to company, Ericsson’s 5G radio testbed and Intel’s 5G client test platform demonstrated excellent performance and stability. The field test is a significant milestone since China’s three major operators have already announced plans to roll out 5G in the 3.5GHz band.

Ericsson’s 5G 3.5GHz radio prototype uses advanced radio technologies including Massive MIMO, multi-user MIMO, and beamforming. With beam tracking, Ericsson’s 5G radio prototype can accurately and quickly track the location and movement of the client devices in real time to ensure consistently reliable connections.

Intel in September 2017 announced its Intel® 5G Mobile Trial Platform as the first to meet upcoming new radio standards. This flexible Mobile Trial Platform is powered by high-performance Intel® FPGAs and Intel® Core™ processors.

Ericsson’s end-to-end Interoperability Developmental Test is being demonstrated during the PT Expo China event held in Beijing, September 27 – 30.
