Smart, OPPO team up to push 5G SA deployment in PH

Smart, the wireless unit of telco giant PLDT, has collaborated with smart device brand OPPO to explore further the country’s development and deployment of 5G Standalone or 5G SA.

The two firms have been collaborating to test OPPO’s 5G smartphones’ compatibility on Smart’s 5G SA network using the OPPO Find X3 Pro.

5G SA technology enables various new industry applications that utilize 5G’s advanced features, enabling super-fast response times and faster access to higher data rates required by cloud gaming, or immersive media, for example.

Smart and OPPO also successfully tried out Voice over New Radio or VONR, which brings better voice and video call experience to mobile users through the 5G SA network.

The partnership boosts Smart’s 5G presence in the country with over 6,400 5G base stations nationwide.
