OPPO joins hands with Ericson

OPPO has recently unveiled the secret behind many of its 5G technologies – the OPPO Communication Lab – which has recently been upgraded in partnership with Ericsson, the world's leading communication technology and services provider. 

Through the newly-upgraded Communication Lab, OPPO is now able to fully realize the entire 5G research and development process, from the underlying RF front-end to software protocol updates and regional tuning and testing. The advanced communication lab will ensure that OPPO smartphones will be among the first to implement many of the latest 5G technologies.

The newly upgraded OPPO Communication Lab contains three major modules: Radio Frequency Lab, Protocol Lab and Network Simulation Lab. The Network Simulation Lab is a collaboration between OPPO and Ericsson while the Protocol Lab is jointly established by OPPO and leading testing technology provider Keysight. 

Chris Shu, Vice President and General Manager of Product Strategy Planning and Cooperation Center, OPPO, said: "The upgraded OPPO Communication Lab is a new milestone in OPPO’s endeavor in 5G, and represents a new level of close cooperation with leading global technology companies. With the rapid evolution of global 5G technology, we are pleased to join hands with Ericsson and Keysight to leverage our experience in 5G standards, products and applications to enhance the 5G ecosystem worldwide".

Egnus Ewerbring, Vice-President and CTO Asia-Pacific Ericsson said, Furthering the OPPO and Ericsson collaboration will bring forward more technology and products to lead 5G market demand and direction, as well as optimize 5G network experience for the end-user. As a leader in the global 5G market, Ericsson looks forward to collaborating with industry partners in building 5G ecosystem and driving innovation to unleash the full potential of 5G technology. 

Cao Peng, vice president and general manager for Keysight's wireless test group, said, “Reliability testing is mandatory before launching the competitive commercial products into the market. The protocol lab and RF lab is a critical milestone for Keysight and OPPO on 5G.”

The Network Simulation Lab, which closely reflects actual urban communication networks, can simulate the 4G/5G networks of different operators and provide communication services for up to 10,000 devices. In addition to the Network Simulation Lab, the OPPO Communication Lab also includes a Radio Frequency Lab and a Protocol Lab. Radio Frequency Lab will carry out extensive tests to ensure that devices can achieve stable connections under these varied environments. The Protocol Lab on the other hand supports technicians in conducting research related to power, read a media release.
