Verizon, Nokia complete first 5G NR mobility call

Friday 17 August 2018 | 19:38 CET | News
Verizon and its technology partner Nokia made the first successful transmission of a 3GPP New Radio (NR) 5G signal to a receiver situated in a moving vehicle, seamlessly handing off the signal from one radio sector to another. Held at Nokia's campus in Murray Hill, NJ, the test follows the companies' successful completion of a series of outdoor data sessions over the 5G NR standard, and the successful multi-carrier aggregation to boost those signals into Gbps range, that took place in June – also both industry firsts.
