ZTE has showcased the latest 5G achievements and innovative 5G applications at China Mobile Global Partners Conference 2017.
ZTE focused on six 5G services at this telecom event: the world’s first 5G IoDT test, 5G experience car, 5G Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), 5G Wireless Access, 5G submarine, and 5G VR cloud game.
5G NR IoDT Test
ZTE, China Mobile, and Qualcomm Technologies jointly performed the world’s first 3GPP R15-based 5G NR system IoDT test. The test uses ZTE’s 5G NR pre-commercial base stations and Qualcomm’s 5G NR UE prototype. The IoDT test was conducted in China Mobile 5G Innovation Center Lab, and was broadcast live on the conference.
5G Experience Car
In the first 5G pre-commercial field trial, 5G experience car allowed users to watch 5G live programs and enjoy 5G VR videos in a moving scenario. Users could view test data of the 5G network in real time, such as the rate, wireless coverage, throughput, mobility, and delay. ZTE showed two-way interactive live broadcasting between the booth and a 5G experience car in the Guangzhou Higher Education Mega Center (HEMC).
5G Unmanned Aerial Vehicle
5G UAV can smoothly transmit HD images to the cloud without any damage to picture quality, and generate topographic maps in a few seconds, improving the efficiency of terrain survey and mapping. 5G UAVs can effectively guarantee the communication of UAV-based logistics and disaster relief in the future 5G era.
5G Wireless Access
FWA using 5G networks can transmit ultra HD images captured by hundred megapixel cameras. FWA can capture images, and realize facial recognition in case of emergency. A 5G network can provide bandwidth of 500 M for hundred megapixel cameras with a few milliseconds.
5G autonomous submarine simulates the scenario where marine researchers observe sea creatures with the VR technology over a 5G network, conduct scientific investigations and stop the leakage of oil pipelines by remotely controlling underwater vehicles. ZTE said 5G has the potential in industrial control, scientific research, rescue, and disaster relief.
5G VR cloud game
ZTE has showcased VR cloud games based on the 5G Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) architecture. On the cloud-aware soft network architecture, the components are orchestrated on demand for users’ access to the virtual world, providing immersive VR cloud gaming experience.
ZTE has partnerships with operators, such as China Mobile, China Telecom, China Unicom, Wind Tre (Italy), Orange (France), SoftBank (Japan), Telefonica (Spain), Telenet (Belgium), and KT (South Korea) for 5G.
