Fujitsu Limited and Qualcomm Technologies Inc. have achieved non-standalone (NSA) 5G New Radio (NR) data calls on sub-6 GHz and mmWave spectrum bands.
The test was conducted on a network-device vendor interoperability test (NV-IOT) for NTT Docomo Inc., leveraging Fujitsu’s commercial 5G base station products together with a mobile smartphone form factor test device. The test was powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem and antenna modules with integrated RF transceiver, RF front-end and antenna elements.
The milestone builds on Fujitsu’s 5G end-to-end ecosystem in Japan, composed of 5G user devices using Qualcomm modems and RF front-end solutions. The test moves the companies one step closer to commercial rollout of 5G in Japan maybe before the end of the year.
Moving forward, both companies will continue to work together to develop digital technologies for 5G including pushing faster speeds, larger capacity of data moved and low latency.
