Designing 5G NR Unified Air Interface

Members of the 5G team at Qualcomm Research describe how they are designing a 5G unified air interface that will meet the significantly expanded connectivity needs of the next decade and beyond.

Demystifying 5G – 5G New Radio (NR) waveform generation

How to generate a 5G New Radio (NR) waveform? This video demonstrates the generation of a 5G NR waveform using the R&S®SMW200A vector signal generator and the R&S®SMW-K114 5G air interface candidates option from Rohde & Schwarz. In this example the 5G waveform uses one of the physical layer parameterization currently discussed in 3GPP RAN1. […]

Ericsson, Qualcomm and SK Telecom announce collaboration on 5G NR trials to accelerate wide-scale 5G deployments

Ericsson, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, and SK Telecom recently announced plans to conduct interoperability testing and over-the-air field trials based on 5G New Radio (NR) standards being developed based on specifications in 3GPP. The trials intend to drive the mobile ecosystem toward rapid validation and commercialization of 5G NR technologies at […]

5G NR—driven by Qualcomm—will redefine everything

Qualcomm’s 5G development efforts are focused on creating a 5G network that takes on a much larger role than previous cellular generations—connecting new industries, enabling new services and empowering new user experiences. At the foundation of this next generation cellular network is 5G New Radio (NR), the global 5G standard for a new OFDM-based air […]

What is 5G New Radio (5G NR)?

5G New Radio (NR) development is part of continuous mobile broadband evolution process to meet the requirements of 5G as outlined by IMT-2020, similar to earlier evolution of 3G & 4G wireless networks. 5G NR aims to make wireless broadband same as of wireline with the fiber-like performance at a significantly lower cost-per-bit. With new […]
