3GPP approves first 5G standards

Another milestone has been achieved in the mobile space by Sprint.

"We view both the Non-Standalone and Standalone modes of new Radio as equally important for the completeness of the 5G standard specification". The 5G NR lower layer specifications have been designed so that they can support Standalone and Non-Standalone 5G NR operation in a unified way: this will ensure that 3GPP benefits the global industry with a large-scale single 5G NR ecosystem. Once they're released, vendors, including Ericsson, Qualcomm, and others, will be able to start making equipment that will ultimately power 5G networks.

AT&T now is awaiting permission from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to conduct 5G tests on the 3.5 GHz frequency band in Washington, D.C., starting from February 2018.

The meeting also hints that NSA 5G (Non-Standalone) will be the wireless standard's initial form when it will be firstly launched in 2019. The 5G NR standard which has already been formed, mainly led by Qualcomm, has finally been completed and approved.

In addition to employment, civil rights laws prohibit discrimination in housing, employment, lending, voting and education. In Amazon's case, for jobs at its distribution centers, it changed 18-50 to anyone over the age of 18.

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. At the aforementioned Qualcomm event, the company talked about how 5G would change our lives, essentially removing the speed roadblock that prevent so many of us from getting things done while on-the-go.

For those of us that have been involved from the beginning - performing early R&D, developing prototypes, and delivering fundamental contributions to 3GPP - we understand that this milestone is no baby-step on our journey to making 5G a reality. With the first standards ready now, the industry expects to start 5G commercial services from 2019.

The completed 5G specifications feature a wide range of spectrum from 600 to 700 MHz bands.

3GPP members will finalize 5G standards during a meeting in September 2018 in Australia.
