With new world-class facilities, vivo aims to lead on long-term technology innovation for robust development and to provide smartphone users all over the world with superior products and services.

The Lab can adapt and replicate worldwide commercial 5G/4G networks using 5G infrastructure including base station and core network technologies already deployed by major global operators. As a result, many tests that formerly required outdoor testing may now be conducted accurately in the lab.

Extreme conditions such as weak signals, crowded streets, and high-speed movement can also be examined in the lab, ensuring the strong performance of vivo smartphones in any scenario.

Base stations and core networks used by operators are aggregated in the Lab
In addition to testing daily life scenarios at the Lab, vivo engineers can also simulate various commercial environments where a multitude of tasks such as gaming, video calling, and live streaming take place.

Based on these contexts, an end-to-end verification method is applied with data intelligence and analysis, gathered for product optimization to continue to deliver the ultimate user experience.

Testing in the Lab
The Lab supports engineers globally in areas ranging from communication protocols to user experience. For example, it is developing testing models to reduce power usage in various network scenarios. It also actively monitors the development of 5G standards, including 5G NR Release 16, to ensure vivo users are among the first to enjoy the latest innovations.

Utilizing a user-oriented strategy, the Lab aims to ensure vivo smartphones can adapt to real-life complex network conditions. During the R&D cycle of each product, thousands of engineering prototypes are rigorously tested in the new Lab, to guarantee that each phone reaches the user with an excellent capability for signal transmission and data transfer, optimal power consumption, and stable performance.

In terms of system reliability and performance stability, a large-scale network stability test environment has been built in the lab to conduct a strict testing program of each smartphone, including more than 4,000 hours of uninterrupted power supply stress tests, more than 1,000 hours of data transfer tests, as well as more than 10,000 mobile original and terminated calls respectively.
