“3GPP 5G NR-based interoperability testing will further promote the commercial process of 5G,” said Yang Chaobin, the President of Huawei’s 5G product line.

“Huawei will actively work with operators and industry partners to promote the maturity of China's 5G industry and help operators to obtain 5G business success.”

In addition to the success of these trials, China Mobile plans to carry out 5G tests in a number of major cities over the course of the coming year.

“China Mobile will launch the first pre-commercial terminals in 2019, which will play an important role in such areas as mobile broadband, industry video and smart manufacturing,” said Huang Yuhong, Vice President of China Mobile Research Institute.

The news comes just days after China Mobile also revealed that it has partnered up with Nokia to explore the potential use of AI within 5G networks in China.
