China Mobile’s business unit in the Sichuan Province has teamed up with Huawei to transform Chengdu into a ‘5G City’, via the deployment of a multi-dimensional 5G network. The solution will involve the construction of a three-layer multi-dimensional network architecture to deliver continuous 5G network coverage throughout the city. The architecture consists of the basic coverage capacity layer, capacity experience layer and an indoor coverage layer.
Since the beginning of this year, the two companies say that they have launched 5G capacity in a numbers of areas in Chengdu, including: the Southern Zone of the Chengdu Hi-tech Industrial Development Zone, Taikoo Li, Tianfu Software Park, Chengdu Panda Base, Metro Line 10, Waldorf Astoria, Kuanzhai Alley and Dujiangyan.
TeleGeography notes that China Mobile was issued with a 5G licence comprising spectrum in the 2515MHz-2675MHz and 4800MHz-4900MHz frequency bands in June this year. A commercial launch is anticipated before the end of 2019.
