Huawei, China Mobile Test 5G Core Network Performance

in News, 5G, China Mobile, Huawei, LTE

Huawei has announced the completion of latest 3GPP specifications (Release 15) based 5G core network technical verification test at China Mobile’s Research Institute. This test covered service-based architecture (SBA), network slicing, edge computing, 5G standalone networking, and other basic service procedures. 

The test results show that Huawei’s 5G core network complies with the latest 5G standard architecture and company expects to serve it as a solid foundation for the future large-scale commercial use of 5G. 

5G not only means higher data rates, but also enables a diverse range of vertical industries, where the various service requirements are swiftly changing and subject to uncertainty. To meet the industries' requirements, an autonomous core network that is user-centered and application-driven must be present. Such a core network can be realized by using network slicing, SBA, control and user plane separation, edge computing, and other key technologies.

Last year at the 2017 Mobile World Congress in Shanghai, China Mobile and Huawei collaboratively showcased the SBA-based 5G core network prototype. The two parties also demonstrated 5G-based remote driving at the same venue.
