5G NR and List of 5G NR networks

Flash Sale 2020

If you have heard about 5G, you may have heard the term 5G NR, or 5G new radio. But what is 5G NR?

1.What is 5G New Radio?

5G is the fifth generation of wireless technology and NR stands for a new radio interface and radio access technology for cellular networks—a physical connection method for radio based communication. Other kinds of radio access technologies include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 4G LTE.

All cell phones use radio waves to facilitate communication as they convert your voice into digital signals. Internet data is sent and received via these radio waves, too.

5G NR uses two frequency ranges: frequency range 1 (FR1) includes 6 Ghz frequency bands and below. Frequency band 2 (FR2) includes bands in the millimeter wavelength (or mmWave) range, which includes 20-60 Ghz. That mmWave range is particularly helpful to enable 5G Ultra Wideband (UWB).

2.Benefits of 5G NR

5G NR will enable the network to support adaptive bandwidth. Key benefits of 5G NR will include more capacity for wireless users, improved links among users (so less lag time and network loss), and enhanced speed of data rates. Because of these end-user/consumer benefits, 5G NR is destined to benefit our day-to-day life.
