Since an initial 5G RAN workshop in September 2015, the 5G standardization process over the past two years
is now taking the industry to the home stretch of live deployments across the Globe. In the upcoming months
we will see massive “early” 5G lab and live trials at a number of events, most notably XXIII Winter Olympics
in Pyeongchang, South Korea in February, 2018, a traditional showcasing in Barcelona at the Mobile World
Congress in the end of the same month and the FIFA World Cup in Russia in mid-summer 2018.
But more importantly, several carriers in the US, Japan, China and Europe are committed to 3GPP-based live
pilot networks roll-out as soon as in 2019. This means that 5G is one step away from becoming a reality.
