In just two years since the 3GPP delivered 5G NR Release 15, it is set to complete Release 16 in early July 2020, which includes support for 5G NR operating in unlicensed spectrum, or simply, 5G NR-U. With two modes of operation - license assisted access (LAA) and a standalone deployment option that does not require any licensed spectrum, NR-U is well-positioned to benefit many in the mobile and broader vertical ecosystems, including mobile network operators (MNOs), multi-service operators (MSOs), wireless ISPs (WISPs) and 5G private network operators.
Join this webinar to learn:
- How NR-U can help service providers deliver the 5G experience end-users have come to expect
- How 5G private networks can be deployed without spectrum licenses to address unmet needs
- How NR-U brings the power of high-performance 5G to a wider range of industrial Internet of things (IIoT) deployments
