KT announces latest 5G NR interoperability test

Korean operator KT, working with Qualcomm and Samsung, has announced the completion of multivendor 5G NR interoperability testing, supporting the recently completed 3GPP Release 15 Non-Standalone (NSA) specifications.

The live, over-the-air test demonstrated data connections operating in 3.5 GHz and 28 GHz bands, using pre-commercial 5G NR base stations from Samsung and user equipment prototypes from Qualcomm.

“KT has worked closely with Samsung and Qualcomm Technologies on testing innovative mobile technologies,” said Seo, Chang-Seok, head of KT’s network strategy unit. “KT believes that this 5G NR trial will pave the way to a successful launch of 5G NR networks and mobile devices, which will mark another technology breakthrough beyond the first broad-scale 5G trial services at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games.”
