“The Middle East has been pioneering the move to 5G with advanced countries already prepared for the revolutionary cellular technology and operators announcing their plans for large scale rollout. Honor is committed to empowering individuals from all over the world lead more connected and intelligent lives in this 5G-enabled world which begins with the 5G Experience Lab,” said Chris Sun Baigong, President of Honor Middle East and Africa.
“While research and development at the lab will help us expand on the potential of 5G technologies, the HONOR Vera30 Series goes beyond 5G capability to also deliver other sought-after technological advances.

The Honor 5G Experience Lab comprises a Communications Protocol Test Lab and features multiple zones that depict the future of 5G in everyday scenarios. In the Communication Protocol Test Lab, visitors will learn about the various global network standards that demonstrate the seamless connections between these networks.
Furthermore, the lab can simulate the frequency ranges and bandwidths of carriers in different countries, allowing visitors to experience the seamless network transitions as if they are on international roaming. In addition to travel, Honor also showcased the deployment and application of 5G in smart homes and gaming while showing how it optimizes 5G signals to ensure best-in-class 5G experiences for users.
