It is important to look at full portfolio and End-2-End solutions and of course, at the beginning there will be a lot of critiques of 5G terminals and phones. Plus the system needs to interact with legacy network that’s also important for factoring.
Mats Blumenberg, CTO European Wireless Product Management, Huawei.
Even in case of multivendor landscape, all vendors have a sort of interoperability testing, which overlooking by GSMA. Regarding our pilot tests results in 5G – all links to capacity increasing that proved to work in real environment. It is non standalone solutions (new frequency band plus interaction with legacy networks).
Plus we will see reforming of existing bands towards 5G and there will be a mix of 4G and 5G, for instance in 1800 MHz. That has been also tested and we have special solution in cloud core to mix usage of both standards in the same band.
