China Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK) announces its introduction of Hong Kong’s first commercial 5G Standalone Network (5G SA). As a pioneer of the telecommunications industry, CMHK is one of the first to roll out the advanced technology for commercial use. The advancement will open up infinite possibilities in digital transformation, and ultimately elevating Hong Kong as a smart metropolis.
CMHK has been devoted to establishing a superlative and reliable 5G network and cultivating an end-to-end industrial ecosystem to offer multifaceted 5G solutions for corporate clients. CMHK has made significant progress since the completion of the 5G Standalone Network test in November 2019.
Network Slicing Enables Tailor-made Network Solutions for Different Industries
Not only can 5G Standalone Networks support businesses in enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), it can also enable ‘Network Slicing’, the key technology under 5G SA which can substantially enhance the development of Internet of Things (IoT) across different industries.
The unprecedented advantages of 5G SA enable CMHK to offer ‘Network Slicing’ services to corporate clients. In particular, it provides a flexible combination of network services to satisfy various business needs, through slicing the 5G network into a number of End-to-End virtual networks based on clients’ specific resource demands. Boasting ‘On-demand Customization’, ‘End-to-End’ and ‘Isolation’, each sliced network is guaranteed to deliver network services in high security and assured quality without compromising the service quality of other network slices.
5G SA is the fundamental component required to refine the multifaceted use of network applications, especially in Massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC) and Ultra-Reliable & Low Latency Communications (URLLC), which are among the three major typical scenarios in the 5G era according to The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP).
The evolution of 5G network relies on technological maturity – the freeze of R16 Standard, the commencement of R17 Standard, and the gradual maturity of the industrial ecosystem. CMHK vouches to follow the 5G standard release and development of new technologies on uRLLC and mMTC, striving to support the development of Hong Kong into a smart metropolis.
Diversified Corporate Solutions with Different Industry Partners
To come up with the best 5G corporate solutions utilizing the 5G SA Network technology, CMHK has been proactively collaborating with strategic partners from diverse sectors, including finance, real estate developer and property management. CMHK’s 5G SA Network will not only help corporate clients build a new-generation industry ecosystem but also indulge individual consumers with an exceptional 5G network experience. With the introduction of 5G SA Network, CMHK UGame will offer gamers with an ultra-stable, smooth and full HD online entertainment experience.
