It’s been in started months ago, but the 3GPP (the 3rd Generation Partnership Project) group that rules cellular standards has officially signed off on the first specification for 5G specifically for 5G network standard at a meeting in Portugal, Lisbon, according to a report from Fierce Wireless.
Having a proper decided upon standard of what 5G network will really seem like is a massive step onward for receiving real, commercial 5G network up and running, as it gives companies hard specs for what they want to be building
As predicted, the finalized 5G network specs cover a wide-ranging range of the spectrum, ranging from the 600 – 700 MHz (megahertz) bands to the MM-wave portion of the spectrum at 50 GHz (gigahertz). We’ll know more details when the confirmed ideals are published later this week as to the exact details for 5G network.
Now that quality has been fixed upon the ball is firmly in the court of carriers and hardware companies to transport, sometime that may still take a time to execute.
For example, the ITU (the International Telecommunication Union) and the 3GPP (the 3rd Generation Partnership Project) legally defined a “4G” network as providing a 100 Mbps data rate when the network moving and a 1 Gbps ( 1 gigabit) while stationary, somewhat that our so-called 4G / LTE networks indeed don’t offer today.
The LTE (Long Term Evolution) Advanced and Advanced Pro standards will positively lastly deliver on those speeds. But still, having some formal goalpost to work near is a massively main part of the development, particularly with the companies like T-Mobile, Verizon already promising 5G network to start rolling out in 2018 – 2019. And at the very least, the 5G NR standard is significantly more development than just having a company’s logo.
