OPPO has tested the industry’s first DSS (Dynamic Spectrum Sharing) data call using its world’s first DSS-enabled 5G smartphone via a collaboration with Ericsson, Qualcomm Technologies, Swisscom and Telstra. OPPO has also become the global first smart device brand to support DSS and DSS technology enables carriers to leverage existing 4G and 5G frequency spectrums and networks accelerating the global deployment of 5G services and bring 5G experience on a broader scale.
According to OPPO, the call made on November 29th was using an OPPO 5G smartphone powered by by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System, connected Bern, Switzerland and Gold Coast, Australia, via Swisscom’s and Telstra’s commercial 5G networks that feature Ericsson Spectrum Sharing (ESS) technology. The call was achieved using spectrum sharing on a 3GPP Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) band. It also marks the first achievement of OPPO Ericsson 5G Joint Lab. When compared to 4G, the 5G network, features high speed and low latency, boosting video quality and reducing latency significantly to create an exceptional 5G video call experience for users.
Andy Wu, Vice President and President of Software Engineering Business Unit, OPPO, says: “As a leading global technology company, OPPO proactively works to accelerate large-scale commercialization of 5G. Our cooperation with Ericsson, Qualcomm, Swisscom and Telstra to facilitate the commercial use of Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) technology is part of our in-depth collaborations in the 5G era. OPPO plans to launch 5G smartphones that support DSS in the next year, which will provide more stable, seamless, and speedy 5G connections, and hence a better user experience.”
OPPO is committed to driving the global 5G commercialization and has obtained a wealth of advantages in 5G standard and patent, products and technologies, as well as scenario applications. Meanwhile, OPPO has been working closely with global industry partners. The success of the data call indicates a deepening collaboration between OPPO and its partners. OPPO has launched Europe’s first commercial 5G phone – the Reno 5G – with Swisscom before. And with Ericsson, OPPO has established a 5G Joint Lab. OPPO will continue collaborating with key industry partners to accelerate the roll-out of 5G globally, bringing 5G experiences to more consumers worldwide, adds the statement of OPPO.
