(Yicai Global) Oct. 17 -- Three major Chinese telecommunication equipment companies, Huawei Technologies Co., ZTE Corporation [SHE:000063; HK:0763] and Fiberhome Telecommunication Technologies Co. [SHA:600498], have successfully completed the first-phase field tests of the fifth-generation (5G) telecommunication technology -- dubbed Slicing Packet Network (SPN) -- in a lab at China Mobile Research Institute, the research division of China Mobile Communications Corp. [HK:0941], reported today.

They were the first 5G data transmission tests ever conducted in the world.

SPN is a new transmission network technology. It represents technological innovations on the physical, link and forwarding control layers in 5G data transmission that satisfy future 5G transmission network requirements, reported.

The tests demonstrated key Slicing Ethnernet features of SPN systems developed by the manufacturers, and achieved inter-system connectivity by successfully tackling encapsulation-related issues between different manufacturers. Furthermore, the tests exceeded expectations and produced an ultra-low latency solution, a mandatory requirement for 5G development.

Successful completion of the tests means that the 5G technology is no longer merely a research topic, but has entered the actual implementation stage, and that China Mobile is at the forefront of 5G technology deployment.
