5G in Release 17 – strong radio evolution

December 14, 2019

By Balazs Bertenyi, 3GPP RAN Chair, Nokia

3GPP RAN#86 held 9-12 December made substantial decisions regarding the further technology evolution of 5G NR radio. Nowhere is it more apparent, than in 3GPP RAN, that the 5G ecosystem is building out to be substantially more versatile than LTE.

5G NR radio evolution is carried out with a drive from a multitude of key stakeholders from the traditional commercial cellular industry, a wide variety of industry verticals and the non-terrestrial access ecosystem. The Release-17 work program is a testament that 3GPP is committed to serving all of these key stakeholders.
