China's Huawei will open a a 5G tryout lab in Seoul next month.
The lab will provide equipment and technological support for Korean businesses to test 5G communications systems and serve as a test bed for other Asian businesses seeking to commercialize the high-speed service.
A Huawei Korea staffer said Sunday, "The mobile communication landscape is changing rapidly after Korea became the first country to introduce 5G early this month."
But the staffer declined to elaborate on the amount of investment that will go into the lab, its size and location in the capital.
Early this year, Huawei announced plans to set up 5G service labs in Asia, Europe and the Middle East and seek tie-ups with regional companies.
Huawei has already signed deals to supply 5G equipment to around 40 global telecoms.
