Announced Date: 6/13/2016 Published Date: 6/24/2016

ZTE announced that it has completed the verification and performance tests of the 5G high-frequency communication and Massive MIMO technologies in Shanghai and Shenzhen.

The tests were organised by the Chinese IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group, and implemented in both Line-Of-Sight (LOS) and Non-Line-Of-Sight (NLOS) scenarios. The test results met expectations. ZTE became one of IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion's first suppliers to complete the high-frequency communication and uplink Massive MIMO tests.

The Chinese IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group formulated the general 5G technology R&D experiment plan and from 2016 to 2018 the plan will be implemented in three phases, which are the key 5G technology test phase, the technological 5G solution verification phase, and the overall 5G system verification phase. The first phase started in September 2015 and will end in September 2016. This phase focuses on key technology verification and performance testing.
