3GPP completes first 5G standard

3GPP declares first 5G NR spec complete

A number of carriers, smartphone makers, and component manufacturers (Qualcomm, Orange, T-Mobile, AT&T, Samsung, ZTE, Sprint, Telefonica, Verizon, Sony, Nokia, MediaTek, and Huawei – to name a few) have expressed their excitement and commitment for a future with 5G wireless.

The specification refers to 5G NR, for "New Radio" - essentially 5G networking's equivalent to 4G "LTE". However, after 1,000s of meeting hours across the various 3GPP Technical Working Groups, we have delivered on the promise for an accelerated 5G NR schedule to support enhanced mobile broadband deployments starting 2019, as shown below in Figure 1.

"As part of this coordinated effort, Intel will continue to play a leading role across the network, cloud and client devices; and with our first commercial 5G modems, we will help the ecosystem lead the way to 5G deployments worldwide", said Asha Keddy, Intel VP and General Manager, Next Generation and Standards.

However, KT evaluated that the company was leading the way in 5G global standardization by building a communication network for a tentative 5G service at Incheon worldwide Airport and in Pangyo, Gwanghwamun, Gangnam Daero, Pyeongchang, Gangneung, Bokwang and Jinbu as official telecommunication service provider for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games.

"Having global 3GPP 5G NR standard by 2017 is one of key milestones to bring 5G into early commercial service in 2019", SK Telecom head of ICT R&D center Jinhyo Park said.

Why your iPhone is getting slower and slower?
But Alphr says Apple's claims are correct as lithium-ion batteries can deteriorate over time . Now we know for certain that Apple slows old iPhones with reduced battery capacity.

Finalized details of the 5G New Radio standard will be published later this week.

This ahead-of-schedule accord is important to hastening the arrival of 5G speeds.

While the specs themselves won't be announced until next week, they're said to offer support for the full range of low (600MHz, 700MHz), mid-range (3.5GHz) and high-frequency, millimeter wave (50GHz) spectrum.

The race to 5G communication is on between cellular carriers.

Although Qualcomm began design on 5G technologies many years ago, the 3GPP 5G journey really kicked off back in September of 2015 at the RAN 5G Workshop in Phoenix, Arizona led by the RAN Chairman at that time, our very own Dino Flore.
