Ericsson is part of Verizon’s Technology Forum, a group that is working to define parameters for 5G specifications in advance of future standards. With 5G, end users will enjoy wireless service that delivers several gigabits per second throughputs and single-millisecond latencies.
Verizon announced completion of its 5G radio specification – the first U.S. carrier to do so. The specification is the product of collaboration within Verizon's 5G Technology Forum.
The specification provides guidelines to test and validate crucial 5G technical components. The development of the specification allows industry partners such as chipset vendors, network vendors, and mobile operators to develop interoperable solutions and contribute to pre-standard.
Ericsson cooperates with 24 service providers around the world to plan and develop their next generation networks, 5G.
