5G will connect virtually everything around us to transform a wide range of industries — manufacturing, automotive, logistics, and many more, and we are on track to make 5G NR — the global 5G standard — a commercial reality by 2019. However, this first phase of 5G mainly focuses on enhanced mobile broadband services, which will contribute to part of the total projected $12T 5G economy. 5G NR will continue to evolve in Release 16 and beyond to further expand 5G’s reach to new devices, services, and ecosystem players.
So, do we have to wait until 2020+ for the next phase of 5G NR before we can start enabling new mobile use cases?
LTE Advanced Pro will fill the gap and is continuing to evolve to bring new capabilities and efficiencies. Join this webinar to hear the latest on:
- Gigabit LTE: anchoring the 5G mobile experience now with over 45 commercial networks globally. Our 3rd gen chipset — the Qualcomm Snapdragon X24 can deliver up to 2 Gbps.
- LTE IoT: starting to connect the massive IoT today, and its continued evolution will be fully leveraged by 5G NR IoT in Rel-16+.
- C-V2X: establishing the foundation for enhanced safety use cases in Rel-14 and a continued 5G NR C-V2X evolution for future autonomous vehicles.
- Private networks: delivering an optimized solution for the industrial IoT, and establishing the foundation to private 5G NR networks that will enable new use cases.
