2018 has come and gone, and all the merriment with it. Parties are done, gifts have been opened, all the food eaten. It’s time once again to take stock, reflect and make resolutions on how to be better this year. The question is, are you doing a new set of resolutions or rehashing the old ones for yet another year?

For several years now, the telecommunications world has been abuzz with the development of 5G. Even while 4G LTE was still getting deployed around the world, the discussions on 5G were also well underway. Finally, the standards for 5G NR (New Radio) are out. The non-standalone standard, which can ride on 4G LTE networks, was released last Dec 2017 while the standalone standard was released last June 2018. Manufacturers within the 5G ecosystem can now develop their own hardware and software that will be able to seamlessly work with others following the same standard.
