Verizon Wireless says it has made the first phone call using 3GPP-compliant 5G New Radio technologies over licensed spectrum. The company used a prototype mobile device from Qualcomm with the chip maker's 5G NR radio on board. Verizon didn't specify if the device made use of Qualcomm's Snapdragon X50 modem. The call was passed from the mobile device over Verizon's millimeter wave spectrum using Nokia's AirFrame server and AirScale Cloud RAN with 5G NR-compliant software. The call was completed at Nokia's lab in Murray Hill, N.J. The companies all say the successful test will help them push forward as they develop and deploy 5G networks.
