3GPP release 15 specifies the initial 5G standardization framework of the radio access network called 5G New Radio (5G NR). The standard contains a high degree of flexibility in radio parameters, which complicates network measurements. However, Rohde & Schwarz has already conducted measurements in pre-commercial 5G NR trial networks with its commercially available 5G NR network measurement solution. We gained interesting insights into the new technology’s performance, capabilities and frequency bands.

The mobile communications industry undertook a paradigm shift in defining the next generation of mobile communications. Before discussing new technologies like in all previous generations, the industry researched and assessed the use cases and needs that 5G should fulfill. After a general agreement about the use cases, requirements were defined, including data rates, carrier bandwidths, latency values, number of devices, etc.

It was only after having reached a consensus on use cases and requirements that the 3GPP identified, discussed and evaluated candidate technologies. 3GPP release 15, issued in March, June and September 2018, specified the initial 5G standardization framework for the radio access network (RAN) called 5G NR.

5G NR is the global standard for providing a unified, more capable 5G wireless air interface. It will deliver significantly faster and more responsive mobile broadband experiences, and it will extend mobile technology to connect and redefine a multitude of new industries.
