Kim Changwu also said that “In July 2011, when LG U+ began to provide LTE (4G) commercial services, it took only nine months to complete the construction of the national network, which has been regarded as a benchmark case. LG U+ has a technology to rapidly design networks. And experience."
In order to meet the 5G era, LG U+ cooperates with domestic and foreign equipment companies such as Huawei, SMEs and universities to conduct 5G joint research and network performance test verification. Jin Changwu said, "In the early stage of 5G deployment, non-independent networking (NSA) was adopted, and technologies such as beamforming and multi-user MIMO were introduced. Therefore, a 5G network capable of fully considering these technical features and ensuring operational capability are especially designed. important."
