Huawei collaborates on 5G NR interoperability
Deutsche Telekom (DT), Intel and Huawei announced in Shanghai on January 25 that they have collaborated to achieve the first 5G interoperability and development testing (IODT) based on the 3GPP R15 standard with a commercial base station. This test, based on Huawei’s 5G commercial base station and Intel’s third generation 5G NR Mobile Trial Platform (MTP), is a critical step towards the full commercial launch of Huawei and Intel solutions supporting millions of devices in 2019.
Deutsche Telekom and Huawei began cooperation on 5G-network research in 2015 and committed to accelerating the development of the ecosystem.
Using Huawei’s commercial NR base station and the Intel 5G NR MTP, the three parties have jointly verified the fundamentals of the new 5G 3GPP NR standard, including new synchronization, coding, frame structure and numerology components underlying the interconnection of the NR-compliant terminal and network.
