After T-mobile & Sprint now Huawei with 2.6 GHZ Low freq 5G tests.
This 2.6 GHz test was conducted in a Huairou 5G trial field and a lab owned by the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, using Huawei's 5G massive MIMO technology.
The successful verification of Huawei's 2.6 GHz NR technology proves that 2.6 GHz can be one of the choices for operators to deploy 5G NSA/SA commercial network, Huawei said.
Yang Chaobin, president of Huawei's 5G product line, said: "In the early stage of 5G network deployment, C-Band and 2.6 GHz are undoubtedly the most mainstream frequency bands. The C-Band industry chain is gradually becoming mature under the joint efforts of all of us. Similarly, the industry chain of 2.6 GHz needs to be promoted together."
In the past three years, Huawei has conducted a large number of 5G NR verification tasks under the organization of the IMT-2020(5G) promotion group in China. The lab and field tests of all 5G Sub6GHz mainstream frequency bands have been completed, the vendor said.
Huawei also said that it will continue to conduct extensive 5G trials with the IMT-2020 (5G) promotion group during 2019, including VoNR (Voice over New Radio) and terminal chip interoperability tests in order to pave the way for 5G commercial trials in 2020.
Earlier T-mobile in 700MHz and Sprint in 2.6 GHz tested the 5G.
