Qualcomm’s 5G New Radio- First 5G Network Trials
Qualcomm has charted a plan to bring 5G services and enhance mobile broadband. Current versions of the prototype system for the 5G New Radio (NR) speculate of a possible two stage introduction of 5G. The system operates in the sub-6GHz spectrum bands, not in the frequency bands expected of 28-65GHz. To reach this, the market has to patiently wait as new technology for the T- Centric 5G program advances that will help it reach the expected data capabilities. 5G will pave the way for changes in networking and communication standards that are sure to benefit the next generation of systems. Those beneficiaries include those in the motorized, manufacturing, and health sectors.
Using frequency bands below 6GH allows Qualcomm to reach a pervasive network coverage that is also flexible. This will also lead Qualcomm from the standardization of 3GPP to a OFDM based 5G NR air interface. Advancements are still currently underway that allow the tracking of 3GPP. Additionally, this ensures 5G NR trials with mobile operators will continue to move forward in a timely manner.
Essentially, technicians are developing 5G to allow multi-mode connectivity in which different types of networks are connected at the same time on a single device. This way, 5G, 4G, and Wi-Fi could be connected all at once. At the moment, Qualcomm continues to work with China Mobile Communications to develop radio chips and other electronic parts in support of the 5G network.
