What is 5G New Radio (5G NR)?
5G New Radio (NR) development is part of continuous mobile broadband evolution process to meet the requirements of 5G as outlined by IMT-2020, similar to earlier evolution of 3G & 4G wireless networks.
5G NR aims to make wireless broadband same as of wireline with the fiber-like performance at a significantly lower cost-per-bit. With new levels of latency, reliability, and security, 5G NR will scale to efficiently connect the massive Internet of Things (IoT), and will offer new types of mission-critical services.
The ITU-R is in process of developing the specifications for IMT-2020, in close collaboration with the whole gamut of 5G stakeholders along with the associated spectrum management and spectrum identification aspects.
3GPP submission to IMT 2020 (aka 5G) will include 5G New Radio (aka 5G NR) and LTE.
