  • The full potential of the next-generation network was verified with OPPO’s Find X2 Pro and Reno3 5G smartphones
  • Deployed in Coventry University in the UK, the new network also features UK’s first 5G SA network slicing service
  • 5G SA network solely relies on the next-generation 5G infrastructure, providing a better experience than NSA networks and is set to be the mainstream 5G structure in the future

OPPO today announced its contribution in the successful deployment of the first 5G Standalone (SA) networks and the first 5G SA network slicing services in collaboration with Vodafone and Ericsson, marking a significant milestone in the construction of Europe’s 5G SA network.

OPPO Find X2 Pro and Reno3 5G smartphones testing 5G SA performance in OPPO’s lab

Deployed in Coventry University in the UK, the new networks was verified with OPPO’s 5G smartphones powered by Qualcomm Technologies and MediaTek’s 5G mobile platforms respectively.

OPPO and Ericsson worked with Qualcomm Technologies and MediaTek separately to develop network slice switching software solutions based on OPPO’s Find X2 Pro and Reno3 smartphones so users can easily switch from different slices to enable the best experience for different needs. One slice was used for high-speed access to the Internet, while the other provided a dedicated connection for faculty members and students to quickly access school resources, and to conduct low-latency, high-definition long-distance teaching, and learning.

According to the definition of 3GPP, the umbrella term for the standards organizations that develop protocols for mobile telecommunications, 5G is classified into two modes: NSA (Non-Standalone) and SA (Standalone), where SA refers to an independent network architecture using 5G base stations and 5G core network. Major telecom operators around the world are vigorously advancing the deployment of 5G SA as it is the go-to network architecture of the future.

Meanwhile, 5G network slicing, which can be applied to the 5G core network architecture, is a technology that divides the physical network into multiple virtualized end-to-end networks. Each sliced network is independent and can have its own resources so that 5G resources can be allocated and utilized more efficiently and flexibly to meet the needs of different user scenarios in accordance with the varying characteristics of applications.

The 5G SA and network slicing technologies are the latest achievements of OPPO’s pioneering research in 5G and OPPO will continue to be a leader in 5G with continuous R&D investment. OPPO believes in a future of intelligent connectivity and 5G is the backbone of that vision. OPPO works closely with supply chain partners to advance 5G technology and elevate user experience while partnering with leading carriers and retailers to connect to more people. OPPO has already struck partnerships with more than 40 major carriers in Europe and will continue to build sustainable success through state-of-the-art products and constant and deep interactions with existing and new partners.

MTN, this week, successfully launched it’s superfast 5G next generation mobile network across major cities in South Africa, including Johannesburg, Cape Town, Bloemfontein and Port Elizabeth.

During a Youtube livestream media launch, speed tests were performed at various locations in Johannesburg and download speeds in excess of 600Mbps with latencies averaging 15ms were demonstrated.

Tests performed by media reported download speeds peaking in excess of 700Mbps and upload speeds peaking at 100Mbps.

Huawei Massive MIMO deployed in Johannesburg

Leveraging on multiple bands, MTN deployed 5G in 2.1GHz using Dynamic Spectrum Sharing, 3.5GHz and 28GHz bands. 3.5 GHz, known as C-band, is the global mainstream spectrum for 5G deployment, and Massive MIMO is the mainstream product form.

MTN’s 5G deployment in Johannesburg uses industry-leading Huawei Massive MIMO. This technology guarantees the user experience for the services that require high bandwidths such as 4K video, multi-angle video, and AR/VR services, and provide broadband services for families and SMEs.

To enable wider 5G coverage, MTN uses dynamic spectrum sharing between 4G and 5G in the 2.1 GHz band. 2.1 GHz spectrum can provide wider coverage due to its lower frequency spectrum characteristics.

Huawei’s DSS (dynamic spectrum sharing) technology enables operators to quickly provide 5G services by upgrading existing 4G base stations to 5G without changing antennas and radio units.

“MTN is the first in Africa to deploy the DSS technology in a 5G live network, which can dynamically adjust the spectrum in milliseconds based on 4G and 5G service requirements, maximizing spectrum utilization”, says Huawei CEO Spawn Fan.

The millimeter-wave band has abundant spectrum resources and can provide a huge capacity to provide services for hotspots and home broadband. MTN uses 100 MHz millimeter wave spectrum resources to provide broadband resources for Enterprises and SMEs, which can enjoy high speed internet services and enter the digital age without requiring a fiber connection.

“This is expected to greatly support people remotely during this era of social distancing caused by the Covid 19 pandemic and will boost South Africa’s transition to a digital economy. We congratulate MTN on the successful upgrade of its network that enabled their transition to the 5G era,” says Fan.

Giovanni Chiarelli, CTIO of MTN South Africa, said, “The 5G technology is also expected to contribute significantly to the country’s economy and will play a role in the realization of South Africa’s digital transformation goals. An excellent 5G network will enable us to provide more exciting services and to offer the ultimate service experience to MTN customers.”
