On 26 February 2016 the International Telecommunication Union group engaged with developing International Mobile Telecommunication systems met to further develop IMT-2020, the standard for 5G mobile systems.
NXP Semiconductors™ N.V., a worldwide leader in advanced systems solutions for the world’s new virtualized networks, and Bell Labs, the industrial research division of Nokia, announced they are the first to create and demonstrate a universal access device that can be used to combine wireline and wireless access support. The device is capable of supporting wireline (cable, DSL/copper) and wireless (LTE, 5G) standards with a single modem.
NXP Semiconductors N.V., a worldwide leader in the cellular infrastructure market, announced the strategic alignment following the merger of NXP and Freescale of comprehensive products and technologies to meet the complete system challenges of 5G. NXP’s comprehensive portfolio of low and high power RF technologies are being combined to address 5G demands of bandwidth, linearity, power-efficiency and small form factor solutions.
Qorvo® Inc., a leading provider of core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and defense applications, announced Qorvo has joined 3GPP™ as a guest delegate to assist in the development of key aspects of 5G next-generation wireless communications standards.
Based on TeliaSonera and Ericsson’s common understanding of market and customer needs, the two companies will develop 5G use-cases and service scenarios, including both communication and Internet of Things (IoT) services with the purpose to address new business opportunities. The partnership will bring 5G services to customers in 2018 by combining the TeliaSonera network with Ericsson technology.
The NYU WIRELESS research center announced it will build an advanced programmable platform to rapidly design, prototype, and validate technologies vital for the millimeter wave (mmWave) radio spectrum, which is potentially key to launching the next ultra-high-data-rate generation of wireless communication, or 5G.
Nokia and Alcatel-Lucent celebrate their first day of combined operations, marking the completion of Nokia's latest transformation and the creation of a global leader in technology and services for an IP connected world.
