3GPP declares first 5G NR spec complete

Global telecom equipments manufacturers and service providers including AT&T, Ericsson, NTT DOCOMO, Orange, Qualcomm Technologies, SK Telecom, Sprint, Telstra, T-Mobile US, Verizon, and Vodafone have claimed that they have demonstrated a multi-vendor interoperability connection compliant with the Non-Standalone (NSA) 5G New Radio (NR) of global 3GPP standard as a step towards the standard-compliant trials an commercialization for industry collaborations aiming to accelerate 5G NR for commercial network by 2019. At the 3GPP RAN Plenary meeting in Lisbon, Portugal, which I'm actively participating in, 3GPP successfully completed the first implementable 5G NR specifications that define the first phase of the global 5G standard.

A coalition of tech and telecom giants said the 5G NR specifications clear the way for the wireless sector to begin "full-scale deployment" of 5G networks, including large-scale trials and commercial deployments as soon as 2019.

"The first version of 5G NR not only provides a NSA solution for 5G deployment but also completes the common part of NSA and SA, which lay a solid foundation for a global unified 5G system with global market scale", added China Mobile EVP Zhengmao Li.

5G network connectivity which was in development since so long has now come up with its first finalized feature which has recently been signed by 3GPP, an organization that governs cellular standards.

The two companies are also competing for the installation of conduits for Olympic telecommunication networks despite the mediation of the PyeongChang Olympic Organizing Committee, and are having a war of words over technical superiority over the 5G standard which has not been set yet. Part of 3GPP Release 15, the first version of 5G will still require fallback to LTE networks for partial operation.

5G worldwide standardization is expected to be completed by 2019.

"This milestone builds on years of researching and developing 5G technology as well as on leading and contributing to the standardization work", said Fredrik Jejdling, Executive Vice President and Head of Business Area Networks at Ericsson.

The quest to make 5G a reality has just taken a very important step forward. Now that the 3GPP has approved the specifications, equipment makers can deliver products to carriers, carriers can start building out their plans in a more robust way, and 5G will officially start its trek to getting to consumers.
