One Small Step for 5G, One Giant Step for Wireless

Today marks a momentous milestone for the wireless industry: the finalization of the 3GPP Non-Standalone (NSA) 5G New Radio (NR) Standard. The formalization of the NSA standard anchors the coming Standalone (SA) version and represents a remarkable step forward for the industry. With NSA 5G NR, players across the ecosystem for the first time have rallied around a single internationally recognized specification for 5G radio systems. It provides the technological foundation for the industry to begin testing and commercializing the next generation of wireless services and devices.
