Fibocom 5G IoT Wireless Module Completes the First Data Call under China Mobile’s 5G SA (Standalone) Network!

Shenzhen China – April 3rd 2020 – Fibocom (Stock Code: 300638), a leading provider of cellular embedded wireless module solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), is proud to announce that its 5G modules FG150 and FM150 have completed the first data call and end-to-end data transmission services under China Mobile’s Standalone-Structured 5G network. The download rate exceeds 100Mbps.

Fibocom FG150 and FM150 5G modules are the first 5G modules based on the Qualcomm SDX55 platform (Snapdragon 5G modem) to offer the data transmission services under the SA-structured 5G network in China. This is another major 5G module R&D milestone in the industry.

The three major operators in China announced in the first quarter of 2020 that, they intend to invest more than 180 billion RMB (25.5 billion US$) for 5G infrastructure construction this year, and in the process more than 550,000 new base stations will be built, mainly for SA investment.

Wireless modules are essential for communication between IoT terminals and the base stations. Fibocom completion of the first data call under the SA-structured 5G network is a significant step towards realization of all the three 5G features (eMBB, uRLLC, and mMTC) in industry IoT and helps accelerate the large-scale deployment of 5G industry applications.

Test Terminals

Fibocom FM150 5G Module, Network Frequency Band: n41, Center Frequency: 50907
(Location: Shenzhen Mobile 5G Joint Innovation Center)

SA Registration

Test card: China Mobile’s 5G SIM card. From the AT command interface on the left:

  • With the “AT + COPS?” Command,
  • Received + cops: 0,0, “CHINA MOBILE 5G”, 11,

Explain that the registered network is SA mode (11 represents the SA mode). If it is an NSA mode, it will display 13. Through the network signaling process log on the right, the 5G module has been successfully registered on the 5G SA network (Registration Complete).

PDU Session Establishment Accept

Dial through the AT command interface on the left to request the establishment of a data connection, that is, PDU session.

It can be seen from the network signaling process log on the right that when the PDU session establishment accept is received from the network, data transmission and normal services can be performed on the IP address assigned by the network.

In the 5G SA communication process, the establishment of PDU session is a symbolic link for successful dialing!
