U.S. semiconductor company Qualcomm is collaborating with Chinese companies China Mobile and ZTE Corporation to conduct 5g positioning tests. These tests are meant to enable a number of “vertical applications” for 5g technology, including public safety and indoor navigation. “The development and use of 5G network positioning capabilities will provide support for industrial application and empower thousands of industries,” said Bai Yanmin, general manager of ZTE’s 5G products group. This same partnership between Qualcomm, China Mobile and ZTE were behind the first end-to-end 5g interoperability data tests in 2017. The partnership represent the continued collaboration on 5g technology between U.S. and Chinese companies even amidst a continued tech war between the two countries.
