OPPO makes the first calls in 5G Standalone
Immediately after the news of the accession, OPPO unveiled its collaboration with Qualcomm, Swisscom and Ericsson to improve 5G networks in Europe with the tech 5G Standalone. In Bern, the three giants of technology and telecommunications worked together to make the first voice and data calls using this standard. The test saw the use of Ericsson 5G Radio Dot System, 5G Core and IMS technologies, and was carried out with OPPO devices. Calls were made via VoNR (Voice over New Radio) and Ericsson Spectrum Sharing with Find X2 Pro and Reno4 Z 5G.
The experiment shows that with the use of FDD and TDD spectra in the low and medium bands it will be possible to significantly improve network coverage in Europe. Put simply, the companies demonstrated 5G New Radio carrier aggregation on FDD and TDD bands along with 5G voice services on a standalone commercial 5G network, technology that will play an important role in the near future of telephony and the improvement of telecommunications. The 4 companies will continue to collaborate to improve the 5G experience.
