This test adopts ZTE services, including 5G base stations, core networks, and devices. The test results show that at 100MHz bandwidth, the single user downlink peak rate is stable at 1.8Gbps, and the extreme distance is up to 3 kilometers, ZTE said.
The 2.6GHz NR test jointly conducted by ZTE and China Mobile is fully based on the 3GPP R15 compliant field trial. In accordance with China Mobile’s test specifications, the test has verified the fundamental performance items of the SA networking, including SA access performance and SA single user rate.
