3GPP Standards for 5G New Radio: from Release 15 and beyond

#5G #3GPP #NR

Event to introduce the 3GPP standardization process and discuss the existing and future specifications for 5G New Radio.


The fifth and latest generation of cellular mobile communication protocols (5G) is meant to address use cases well beyond the next decade.  The first set of technical specifications for 5G, also referred to as “New Radio” or NR in 3GPP, were completed as part of 3GPP Release 15.  The standardization work for 5G NR continues and new features are continuously added to address more advanced use cases and verticals.  This presentation will provide an overview of the standardization process in 3GPP and an overview of the technical features for Release 16 and Release 17 of the specifications. The presentation will conclude with an outlook of future wireless evolution.
