Verizon and Nokia this week completed what they're describing as the
first over-the-air, end-to-end data transmission on a commercial 3GPP
5G New Radio (NR) network in Washington, D.C., using commercially
deployed Nokia radio gear.

The feat was done using the non-standalone (NSA) core, and the
significance of it is it's the first transmission of this nature using
commercial equipment in a field environment and not in a lab,
according to Verizon spokesman John O'Malley.
