Foundation For 5G SA Network Trials
Oppo said that it has been actively laying the foundation for 5G SA network trials through its 5G Innovation lab in India.
“While most 5G tests in India involved non-standalone models, Oppo developed the solutions on stand-alone platforms – which meant testing devices with an authentic 5G set-up. Jio, which is committed to developing the 5G ecosystem in India, offered the 5G standalone network environment for testing these devices.”
“With these initiatives, Oppo aims to ensure that once commercialised, every adopter can have a true 5G device experience,” the statement said.
