Verizon, Nokia mark OTA data transmission on commercial 5G network in D.C. [telecom]

by Monica Alleven

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.
