|PRC China's 5G license announcement is 3.5Ghz and 4.9Ghz bands. Refs here from en.C114.com.cn and Reuters|
Datang developed the 3.5Ghz spec for PRC beginning waaay back around 2008-9 IIRC and it was initially deployed as Enterprise tech starting around 2013-14 based on Conference Press Releases I was reading in Chinese language press. Back then it was called Hi-LTE and video conference in hi-def was the halo app. Tele-Medicine was the dotGov gee wiz social benefit being proposed.
BTW: Datang is similar to our GE as a multi-industry powerhouse corp. SOE of course.
Anyway, PRC expanded 5G spectrum to include hi band C. That will keep Western chips off of their net spectrum creating de facto privacy. But it also sets up a new worry of unwanted PRC satellite broadcasts on 4.9Ghz to any PRC 5G chips deployed outside PRC. Soooo... a new reason to ban PRC tech then....
:sheesh: it never ends......
We need a new round of negotiations called 'Sunshine Regulations Treaty' or something.
Good Will needs to arise some way.
Maybe Jared Kushner can work on that next...........
China Officially Issues 5G Commercial License
On June 6 2019, the Ministry of Industry and Information officially issues 5G commercial licenses to four operators, including China Telecom, China Mobile, China Unicom and China Broadcasting Television.

China Completes its 5G Phase III NSA Trials and SA Trials Exceed the Mid-Point
On September 27(Beijing Time), The IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group of China announced the newest results of China’s 5G technology R&D trial Phase III at the 3rd 5G Innovation and Development Summit.
Up to now, Phase III NSA (Non-Stand Alone) trials have been completed, and the SA (Stand Alone) trials process has also exceeded the halfway.
It is reported that the participants in Phase III of the trials include Ericsson, Huawei, Nokia Shanghai Bell, Samsung, China Information and Communication Technologies Group Corporation (CICT), ZTE and other six system manufacturers, Qualcomm, Intel, UNISOC and other chip manufacturers, as well as Rohde & Schwarz (R&S), KEYSIGHT and other instrument manufacturers.
According to reports, the NSA trials in the Phase III covered indoor trial, core network function, base station function, and outfield trial. Huawei, ZTE, and CICT completed NSA 3.5GHz and 4.9GHz frequency bands trials. Nokia Shanghai Bell and Ericsson completed most of the trial, and Samsung started to launch the trial.
SA trials were involved in core network functions, base station functions, outfield trial, and interoperability trial. Huawei, CICT, Ericsson, and ZTE completed the SA core network tests, Huawei also completed the SA base station function test. In addition, CICT, Ericsson, and ZTE basically completed the base station function test.
The Phase III results demonstrate that China's NSA system trials have been completed, and the SA system trials process exceeds mid-point, which has effectively promoted the maturity of 5G technology and equipment. The next step of IMT-2020 (5G) promotion group is to accelerate the promotion of system equipment, chips, terminal and instrument development and optimization, and to conduct comprehensive interoperability tests of system and chip system terminals.
The forum also released the 5G Bearer Network Architecture and Technical Solution White Paper and 5G UAV Application White Paper.
