The 3GPP non-independent networking 5G NR standard was formally frozen, and industry leaders agreed on the internationally recognized 5G air interface specification.
Recently, Asha Keddy, Vice President of the Intel Client and IoT Business and System Architecture Division and General Manager of Standards and Next Generation Technology Division, published an article titled "A Small Step to 5G, A Big Step in the Wireless Industry." full text:

Recently, Asha Keddy, Vice President of the Intel Client and IoT Business and System Architecture Division and General Manager of Standards and Next Generation Technology Division, published an article titled "A Small Step in 5G, A Big Step in the Wireless Industry."
With the establishment of the NSA 5G NR standard, manufacturers in the ecosystem have for the first time agreed on an internationally recognized single 5G air interface system technical standard. It lays the technical foundation for the industry to initiate the testing and commercialization of next-generation wireless services and devices.
I would like to congratulate all parties who contributed to the development of this standard, which laid the foundation for a global interconnected market full of business opportunities and technological potential. Intel participated in this process and worked closely with leading players in the mobile industry to support the establishment of this standard and accelerate the first batch of NR trials.
Many early application scenarios will fall into the areas of Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Internet of Things (IoT), and Communication between Vehicles and Everything (V2X). Intel has been promoting innovation in these areas, using the Intel 5G Mobile Test Platform (MTP) and the Intel GO 5G vehicle platform for field trials. We must collect key information about the usage scenarios and related performance requirements 2-3 years in advance to prepare for the freezing of this specification.
Intel is proud to contribute to the development of the NSA 5G NR standard through special studies, reference designs, and insights from extensive trials. Intel's many contributions include coding, error correction, modulation, spatial sub-channelization, beamforming, reference signal design, and wireless link adaptation. Intel also developed prototypes for the testing of quasi-5G standards, including 5GTF. These system stacks are essentially predecessors of the NSA and SA 5G NR, providing evidence of possible solutions and specifications for this standard. In the process, we have collaborated with industry innovators such as Ericsson* and Nokia*, as well as leading operators such as AT&T*, Korea Telecom*, NTT Docomo* and Verizon*.
We are keeping pace with the progress of the NR specification and quickly evolve our mobile trial platform to prepare for the freeze of this standard. It is already ready for the NSA 5G NR, providing device manufacturers with the platform needed for interoperability testing and allowing operators to simulate real-world scenarios. This mobile test platform uses high-performance Intel FPGAs and Intel? core? The processor, which will play a key role in helping to develop the SA standard in Release 15 to be released in June 2018.
We already have several NSA 5G NR trials in the pipeline that will use mobile test platforms, Intel's 5G RFICs supporting sub-6GHz bands and millimeter waves, and 5G RFFEs operating in the 28GHz and 39GHz bands. The information obtained from these interoperability tests and field trials is the basis of our first commercial NSA/SA 5G NR multimode solution (the Intel® XMM® 8000 Series modem), which is expected to be used in 2019. Client device. These solutions will support a variety of application scenarios, including PCs, cell phones, fixed wireless CPEs, and even cars.
Of course, we should keep in mind that such a momentous moment is only the beginning. After the common standards are in place, it is time for real innovation to begin. I expect that when 3GPP Release 16 is released, we will see that 5G is beginning to become a reality: immersive digital and media experiences for mobile users, low-latency connections for machine-to-machine applications, and ultra-reliable for critical applications Communication. All of these will be delivered at a lower bit cost per mobile operator unit, giving manufacturers economies of scale globally.
When that day comes, Intel will be ready as it is today to support the entire industry and achieve 5G future through an end-to-end solution from the network to the cloud to the client.
