Fibocom Modules Used to Conduct their First Data Call on China Mobile's Standalone 5G Network

Fibocom, a provider of cellular embedded wireless module solutions for the IoT, has announced that its 5G modules FG150 and FM150 have completed the first data call and end-to-end data transmission services on China Mobile's Standalone-Structured 5G network. The download rate on this network exceeds 100 Mbps. Fibocom FG150 and FM150 5G modules are the first 5G modules based on the Qualcomm SDX55 platform to offer the data transmission services under the SA-structured 5G network in China.

Wireless modules are essential for communication between IoT terminals and the base stations. As a leading IoT wireless module solutions provider, Fibocom’s 5G modules have achieved another R&D milestone in the industry. The completion of the first data call under SA-Structured 5G network is a significant step towards the realization of all the three 5G features (eMBB, uRLLC, mMTC) and helps customers to accelerate the large-scale deployment of industry applications based on 5G.

The test used the Fibocom FM150 5G module with China Mobile's 5G SIM card under the n41 network frequency band in the Shenzhen Mobile 5G Joint Innovation Center. Fibocom FM150 5G module has been successfully registered on the 5G SA network and established the PDU session. In the 5G SA communication process, the establishment of PDU session is a symbolic link for successful dialing.

The modules support both 5G SA and NSA network architectures, providing an integrated multi-network solution that is compatible with the global 5G Sub 6 and millimeter-wave bands. Fibocom 5G modules are compatible with both LTE and WCDMA standards, reducing customers' investment in the early stage of 5G deployment and help customers to switch the old product lines to 5G product lines quickly.

Fibocom's 5G modules have global coverage, accelerating scale deployment of the 5G IoT applications, such as 4K/8K video live broadcast, cloud office (ACPC), drone, robot, AR/VR, 5G virtual dress mirror, 5G cloud game, 5G digital signature, 5G wireless gateway, 5G CPE, 5G SD-WAN, smart grid, telemedicine, connected cars, intelligent transportation system, autonomous driving, smart home and smart cities, etc.
