ZTE, China Telecom complete 300MHz 5G QCell verification

Chinese tech company ZTE and the Hangzhou branch of China Telecom, announced on Friday the completion of 300MHz 5G QCell verification in Hangzhou Olympic Sports Center, according to a joint statement.  

This deal aims to prepare for the 19th Asian Games Hangzhou 2022 that will be held from 10 to 25 September 2022. 

China Telecom — which is the official sponsor of the event — is expected to provide high-quality telecommunications networks in the Olympic Sports Center and provide smart 5G services for 80,000 spectators. 

To achieve this goal the Chinese companies partnered to set a dedicated Asian Games team, in charge of completing network planning and verification on site. 

The team has completed the first field test of 300MHz QCell in the sports center, the statement stated.  

Additionally, the dedicated team has efficiently completed the 1D3U(DSUUU) uplink verification of 300MHz QCell, with the peak uplink rate of the 1D3U frame structure (DSUUU) exceeding 730Mbps.  

This completion will address the uplink traffic requirements in the large video scenario. 

Through the two accomplishments the team completed the partners can guarantee sufficient high-quality networks for the 19th Asian Games Hangzhou 2022. 

Furthermore, the statement highlighted that the Hangzhou Branch of China Telecom and ZTE will cooperate further to actively explore new high-quality solutions for a smart 5G city. 

It’s worth mentioning that this is not the first collaboration between both Chinese companies, as earlier this year the pair completed the industry’s first NodeEngine pilot on the commercial network in Yangzhou using 5G existing network & NodeEngine traffic offloading service.
