- The tests assured the firm’s 5G chips are completely interoperable with equipment suppliers.
- The 5G SA chip interoperability testing reportedly involved the use of UNISOC T7510 in around 280 products.
China-based communication system chipset provider UNISOC Technologies Co. Ltd. has reportedly concluded ZUC verification and 5G standalone (SA) chip interoperability testing with multiple vendors.
These tests were prearranged at China Academy of Information & Communication Technology (CAICT) by the IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group, through smartphones powered by UNISOC T7510. Sources further confirmed that the 5G SA chip interoperability testing involved vendors such as Ericsson, ZTE and Nokia Shanghai Bell.
The tests assured the firm’s 5G chips are completely interoperable with equipment suppliers and endorse ZUC encryption algorithm, subsequently setting the groundwork for the 5G standalone terminal commercialization on a wider scale, cited sources with knowledge of the matter.
The 5G SA chip interoperability testing reportedly involved the use of UNISOC T7510 in around 280 products, covering the EPS Fallback, NR-LTE mobility, service bearing, physical layer, NAS layer, RRC layer, and network slicing.
It is to be noted that, smartphones with UNISOC T7510 have accomplished 18 test cases for encryption delay, uplink/downlink pace, and data-level integrity protection in the ZUC performance test. A central 3GPP Confidentiality Algorithm, ZUC, or Zu Chongzhi, will be utilized in order to create a more stable 5G network and meet the demands of different verticals.
UNISOC Technologies Co. Ltd., a leading fabless semiconductor firm, focuses on research and development of mobile communications and AIoT core chipsets. With 4,500 of staff members, 17 R&D centers and seven customer service centers worldwide, it is China's largest IoT and communication system chipset providers.
The company is also one of the top three mobile chipset provider as well as a prominent entity in the 5G spectrum.
