Verizon, Nokia mark two industry firsts over 3GPP New Radio technology

Wednesday 13 June 2018 | 09:00 CET | News
Verizon and Nokia passed a major milestone on the road to commercial 5G deployment with two industry premieres. The first is a successful completion of a series of data sessions over the 3GPP New Radio 5G standard outdoors – rather than in a lab, while the second is a successful multi-carrier aggregation to boost those signals into Gbps range. In February, the two companies, along with Qualcomm, completed the first-ever 3GPP NR data connection in a lab. The latest tests took place on Verizon's campus in Basking Ridge, NJ.
