5G NR release 16 – start of the 5G Evolution

The finalization of the 3GPP release 15 in June this year was a major milestone in many respects. The first 5G New Radio (NR) specifications are complete and commercial deployments will be available by the end of this year. It is also the basis for the continuous evolution of 5G NR technology, spanning across multiple releases, to further improve performance and address new use cases. The first step of this evolution was recently taken when several 3GPP working groups met in Gothenburg, Sweden, to start the work on release 16.
