Chinese smartphone manufacturer OPPO claimed to have successfully tested a pre-commercial 5G enterprise network slicing solution in collaboration with Swedish Telecom equipment maker Ericsson and US-based chipmaker Qualcomm Technologies.

The three companies recently demonstrated the pre-commercial 5G enterprise network slicing solution at OPPO’s 5G Communications Lab.

“During this first demonstration of the solution, OPPO worked closely with Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies to achieve connection between the core network, wireless network, and chip module,” said an official statement.

The joint team demonstrated application and network traffic partitioning using the pre-commercial 5G enterprise network slicing solution. They used an OPPO Find X5 Pro powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile platform with Snapdragon X65 Modem-RF System and Ericsson 5G Core to support User Equipment Route selection and Policy control (URSP) and 5G RAN Slicing solution,

According to the statement, this enables the steering of applications and enterprise services with specific requirements to defined slices without switching devices. Under the new solution, apps which are able to access the dedicated network slice are easily identifiable via a small icon displayed next to the main mobile app icon.

"5G enterprise network slicing is the key to realizing 5G-differentiated applications," said Xia Yang, Senior Director of Carrier Product Line, OPPO,

"OPPO will leverage our strengths in innovation and collaboration across the tech ecosystem to advance the commercialisation of 5G enterprise slicing technology. Together with our partners, we will enable a wide range of OPPO product users to be the first to enjoy a customized 5G connectivity experience," Yang added.

According to Monica Zethzon, Head of Solution Area Packet Core at Business Area Cloud Software and Services at Ericsson, this solution provides a foundation for CSPs to deliver more tailored 5G services for enterprises. The solution has been created in partnership with OPPO and Qualcomm Technologies and underpinned by Ericsson’s dual-mode 5G Core and 5G RAN Slicing technologies.

"Commercialisation of slicing will provide 5G networks tools to customise 5G capabilities as per the needs of the application," said, Sunil Patil, vice president, product management at Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
