It is reported that China Mobile 5G Innovation Center will build the Core Laboratory in China Mobile Research Institute in Beijing and build Regional Laboratories in China Mobile International Information Port, Qingdao, Chongqing and other regions.
Relying on 5G Innovation Center, China Mobile will be actively involved in 5G trials organized by IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group and promote 5G candidate technologies' validation, standardization, industrial chain construction and product maturity to meet the requirement of 5G commercial deployment in 2020. Meanwhile, China Mobile hopes to strengthen the collaboration with industry organizations, expanding the cooperation of 5G Innovation Center and promoting the cooperation results worldwide.
“In order to catch the significant opportunity brought by 5G, I believe what’s most important is to innovate and collaborate. Traditional communication industry and vertical industry should change from innovation of its own to cross-industry synergy, then we can jointly expand 5G new markets, explore new applications and embrace the transformative 5G world. ” said by Mr. Li Zhengmao, EVP of China Mobile, “The beautiful vision of 5G will be realized with global collaboration. We sincerely invite more partners to join China Mobile 5G Innovation Center to create a fantastic 5G world together.”
