Nokia and SFR complete 5G New Radio call using 3.5 GHz spectrum

Monday 7 May 2018 | 16:55 CET | News
Nokia and SFR have completed what they say is the first call to be made in France using the 5G New Radio (5G NR) standard, as part of an over-the-air test conducted at Nokia's Paris-Saclay campus. The call was made on 3GPP-compliant test devices over 3.5 GHz spectrum. Using a similar set-up to the recent trial conducted by Nokia with Verizon, the call was completed on Nokia's 5G-ready AirScale Cloud RAN, running on its AirFrame data center solution.
