The 5G consumption study indicates a clear short-term demand for large-scale 5G; about 50% of respondents are likely to be the first 5G adopters. Companies are committed to making the mobile 5G a commercial reality in 2019 based on the infrastructure and standard 5G NR compatible devices.

Qualcomm Technologies and Nokia announced plans to conduct interoperability testing and field trials based on the 5G New Radio (NR) Release-15 specifications being developed by 3GPP. The trials and trials are intended to push the mobile ecosystem toward rapid validation and commercialization of 5G NR technologies at scale, enabling timely commercial network launches in 2019 based on the infrastructure and standard 5G NR devices compatible with 3GPP.

There is a clear and growing interest in the industry in 5G mobility applications to meet the growing needs of mobile broadband and new requirements. A recent 5G consumer survey conducted by Qualcomm Technologies revealed that 48% of respondents will likely buy a smartphone that supports 5G when it becomes available. In addition, 5G was the main feature by which consumers were willing to pay more on their next mobile device.

En las pruebas y ensayos, las compañías mostrarán las tecnologías 5G NR para lograr de manera eficiente tasas de datos de varios gigabits por segundo en latencias tan bajas como 1 milisegundo y fiabilidad significativamente mejor que la red actual, entre otras capacidades. Estas tecnologías serán fundamentales para satisfacer los crecientes requisitos de conectividad para las experiencias de banda ancha móvil de los consumidores emergentes, como la transmisión de vídeo de alta fidelidad, la realidad virtual / aumentada y el cloud computing, así como la habilitación de nuevos servicios de alta confiabilidad y baja latencia. casos de uso como vehículos autónomos, drones y equipos industriales.

The tests and trials will use the Nokia 5G FIRST solution , incorporating the Nokia AirScale base station that transmits the 5G NR radio interface to the device prototype of QualcommTechnologies. Companies will test end-to-end airborne applications between the base station and the device to simulate real-world scenarios through a broad set of 5G NR use cases and deployment scenarios. The tests will include operation 5G NR in sub-6 GHz spectrum bands such as 3.5 GHz and 4.5 GHz, as well as millimeter waveband bands (mmWave) such as 28 GHz and 39 GHz, to test the design unified 5G NR across the spectrum of various alzacuello.

To demonstrate the enhancements, the tests and trials will feature advanced 3GPP 5G NR technologies, including MIMO (Multiple Multiple Input Multiple Output) antenna technology , beamforming, autonomous adaptive TDD , waveforms to support broader bandwidths, advanced schemes coding and modulation and a new flexible design based on low latency slot structure. This will include the 5G NR operation in the mmWave spectrum, using the advanced 5G NR antenna technology to deliver robust and sustained mobile broadband communications including line-of-sight (NLOS) environments and device mobility.

Interoperability testing, which will begin in the second half of 2017, is designed to closely follow the first 3GPP 5G NR specification that will be part of Version 15. Both companies are also collaborating with network operators to carry out 5G NR field trials in 2018 across various regions including China, Europe, Japan, and the USA. Tracking the 3GPP specification is important because it promotes adherence and validation with the global 5G standard, accelerating time to standard devices and infrastructure. It will also guarantee future compatibility with future versions of 3GRP 5G NR.
