[Shanghai, China, December 5, 2018] Today, Intel and Huawei announced that they have successfully completed 2.6GHz 5G NR Interoperability and Development Testing (IoDT) based on the 3GPP Release 15 global standard September version. The IoDT test is the world's first 2.6GHz 5G interoperability test under SA network and is a key milestone towards accelerating the maturity of the 2.6GHz 5G NR ecosystem
With Intel’s 5G Mobile Trial Platform (MTP) and Huawei's latest 5G NR (New Radio) base station supporting the 2.6GHz with 160MHz bandwidth, the two companies jointly completed the IoDT and successfully enabled the first call under SA network.
The successful completion of this IoDT test not only marks the end-to-end successful interoperability of 5G in the 2.6G band, but also lays a foundation for large-scale commercial launch. It will promote the development and maturity of the 5G end-to-end industry in the 2.6G band.
In the future, Intel and Huawei will continue to carry out more test and commercial verification, and promote the rapid maturity of the ecosystem, laying a solid foundation for the future 5G commercialization.
