ZTE has completed the 5G base station RF OTA test at 26GHz in the millimeter-wave frequency band test of China’s 5G R&D trial, which is organized by IMT-2020(5G) Promotion Group. This test was carried out in the MTNet laboratory of the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology in Beijing.
Using 5G mmWave equipment developed by ZTE, the team completed the 5G mmWave OTA test, which covers TRP, EIRP, modulation quality, TRP and receiver reference sensitivity. According to ZTE, the test has verified the reliability and completeness of the mmWave testing system developed by China ICT Institute as well as ZTE’s technological capability to develop 5G mmWave equipment.
ZTE also reports that the test results support the 5G mmWave deployment planning and the 5G high-frequency spectrum planning.
Guided by China’s IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group, ZTE has participated in China’s enhanced 5G technology R&D trial. The company now plans to gradually carry out the function test and field test of 5G mmWave to prepare for the large-scale commercial use of mmWave.
