3GPP completes delayed 5G NR Release 16 spec

Tuesday 7 July 2020 | 09:00 CET | News
Global mobile standards body 3GPP has announced the completion of Release 16 of its 5G New Radio (NR) specifications around 3 months after it was planned due to the decision to hold meetings online during the Covid-19 pandemic. Release 16, or "5G Phase 2", is described as a major release for the project because it brings the 3GPP's IMT-2020 submission – for an initial full 3GPP 5G system – to its completion.
