What Does 5G NR Stand For?
The NR in the term 5GNR / 5G-NR stands for New Radio (NR) and this is the global standard for a unified, more capable 5G wireless air interface. 5G-NR will deliver significantly faster and more responsive mobile broadband experiences, and extend mobile technology to connect and redefine a multitude of new industries.
Qualcomm and 5G NR
Qualcomm is the R&D engine at the centre of the mobile ecosystem—making 5G NR a commercial reality.
Building upon their leadership in 3G and 4G LTE, Qualcomm have been designing 5G for years—creating new 5G technologies that are pushing and often redefining the boundaries of wireless. Through Qualcomm’s fundamental contributions to the 3GPP, their technology inventions drove the first 5G NR global standard, which was completed in December 2017.
