Oppo retail store networkOppo, Ericsson and Qualcomm recently demonstrated the pre-commercial 5G enterprise network slicing solution at Oppo’s 5G Communications Lab to achieve connection between the core network, wireless network, and chip module.

The team used an OPPO Find X5 Pro powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Mobile Platform with Snapdragon X65 Modem-RF System, running a customized system based on Android 12 – ColorOS 12, Dynamic Network Slicing Selection capability from Ericsson 5G Core to support User Equipment Route selection and Policy control (URSP) and 5G RAN Slicing solution, said Xia Yang, Senior Director of Carrier Product Line, Oppo.

This solution, created in partnership with Oppo and Qualcomm  and underpinned by Ericsson’s dual-mode 5G Core and 5G RAN Slicing technologies, provides a foundation for CSPs to deliver more tailored 5G services for enterprises, Monica Zethzon, Head of Solution Area Packet Core at Business Area Cloud Software and Services, Ericsson said.

Commercialization of slicing will provide 5G networks tools to customize 5G capabilities as per the needs of the application, Sunil Patil, vice president, product management at Qualcomm Technologies, said in a news statement.

Oppo previously partnered with Vodafone and Ericsson to build the first 5G SA network in the UK at Coventry University, where it also demonstrated the first 5G SA network slicing technology. Oppo has also worked with China Mobile to complete testing and verification of 5G terminal slicing.
