About the Webinar

5G is a unifying connectivity fabric that will connect virtually everything around us, expanding the reach of mobile to new services, applications, deployments, and spectrum types. Today, we are preparing for the first commercial launches of 5G NR, which is based on Release 15 of the 3GPP global standard, and it will usher in many new and enhanced mobile experiences starting in 2019. In parallel, we are also evolving 5G NR to expand into new industries, such as automotive and industrial IoT. Join this webinar to:

  • See where we are on the path to make 5G NR a commercial reality
  • Understand what is at the foundation of 5G NR Release 15 for enabling new and improved applications
  • Learn what’s coming in Release 16 and beyond that will expand 5G into new industries
