During the recent MWC Shanghai, Nokia and Tencent have signed an agreement to establish an end-to-end 5G test environment in Shenzhen.

The two companies will conduct verification on service key performance indicators and develop new 5G and IoT use cases. This will include applications such as Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) and to enhance the delivery of services such as cloud-based gaming and entertainment.

The new lab will include centralized and decentralized split architecture using Nokia Airscale Radio Access Network, 5G Core, MEC framework and third party devices.

With 1.04 billion combined monthly active user accounts of its WeChat and QQ social media applications, Tencent aims to leverage the massive connectivity, increased speeds, capacity and reliability and lower latency enabled by 5G to enhance these services.

The two companies will also leverage the artificial intelligence and automation management capabilities enabled by 5G to promote international standards and an open-source ecosystem to expand the development of new services.

Marc Rouanne, President of Mobile Networks, Nokia
