Verizon, Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, completed the first end-to-end call with a smartphone form factor test device on a commercial 3GPP 5G New Radio (NR) network in Minneapolis, MN. The successful test demonstrated the experience consumers will eventually have on a commercial 5G NR network.
The companies were able to perform several tests over the 5G connection, including accessing the internet. The transmissions were completed over Verizon’s 39 GHz spectrum and an Ericsson millimeter wave radio through the Ericsson non-standalone Option 3x core. The Qualcomm form factor test device included an integrated Snapdragon X50 5G modem and RF subsystem.
