China Mobile sends China’s first 5G message
ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, today ( April 10, 2020) helped China Mobile’s Zhejiang branch send China’s first 5G message based on GSMA UP2.4 standard in Hangzhou, China. China Mobile is the first Chinese operator to implement the 5G Message Center (5GMC).
China Mobile’s 5G message is expected to enter into commercial use by the end of June 2020, which represents a formal countdown to the commercial use of 5G messages in China.
This first 5G message interconnected the 5G message system and Chatbot or existing network equipment, implementing point-to-point transmission of rich media messages such as pictures, videos, locations and files.
The communication between the terminal and the new-generation industrial application Chatbot was implemented by leveraging the MAAP platform and improved the multimedia service for users thereby accelerating the commercial use of 5G messages.
The Zhejiang Branch of China Mobile is the first pilot unit of China Mobile’s 5G messages. Its 5GMC system, which is constructed by ZTE, employs a full cloud-based NFV architecture and a built-in lightweight solution.
In addition to the downward compatibility with 2G/3G/4G short messages, the 5GMC system also provides brand-new 5G messaging services, which feature enhanced messages and business messages, and short message upgrade to rich media messages, card messages, and Chatbot applications.
5G terminal users and industry users will experience one-stop services, such as search, dialogue, interaction and payment in the message window, without the need to install any APP, i.e. directly accessing the applications of operators and third parties.
As a world-leading messaging service provider, ZTE has been working closely with China Mobile to guide and promote the establishment of international 5G messaging standards. It assisted China Mobile to complete the GSMA UP certification for the first time in the world, and organized the 5G message interworking test for the three major Chinese operators, thereby laying a solid foundation for the development of 5G messages.
Listed in the stock exchanges of Hong Kong and Shenzhen , ZTE sells its products and services in more than 160 countries. To date, ZTE has obtained 46 commercial 5G contracts in major markets, such as Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa (MEA).
