5G Glossary

What is 3GPP?

The 3GPP is an international standards organization that oversees the development of third-generation (3G) mobile phone standards. Founded in 1998, the 3GPP is responsible for the development and maintenance of the Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS), Long Term Evolution (LTE), and LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) standards.

What is 5G NR?

NR (New Radio) is the name given to the next generation of cellular technology that is currently being developed by 3GPP. 5G NR is not an evolution of 4G LTE, but is a completely new air interface that has been designed from the ground up to support the very high data rates, low latency, and high reliability that will be required for 5G networks.

What is 5G NSA Mode?

5G NSA mode stands for 5G Non-Standalone mode. This is a mode of operation for 5G networks that relies on a connection to a 4G LTE network. In this mode, 5G NR (New Radio) nodes are used for enhanced mobile broadband and high-speed data services, while 4G LTE nodes are used for voice services and other low-speed data services.

What is 5G SA Mode?

5G SA mode is a term used to describe the standalone operation of the 5G network. In this mode, the 5G network is not reliant on any other network infrastructure and can operate independently.

What is 5GTF?

The 5G Technical Forum (5GTF) is an organization that promotes the development and adoption of 5G technology. The 5GTF was founded in 2016 by a group of companies that are working on 5G technology, including Nokia, Qualcomm, and Samsung. The 5GTF's goal is to create a standards-based approach to 5G that will enable a smooth transition to the next generation of wireless technology.

What is 802.11ax?

The 802.11ax standard—officially known as IEEE 802.11ax-2019—is the latest generation of Wi-Fi (Wi-Fi 6). It builds upon the previous 802.11ac and 802.11n standards by adding numerous improvements that make it faster, more efficient, and more capable of handling dense networks.

What is Baseband?

Baseband is a type of signal that consists of a single carrier wave with no modulation. This makes it different from other types of signals, such as amplitude modulation (AM) or frequency modulation (FM), which do have modulation. Baseband is used for a variety of purposes, including carrying digital data, carrying analog data, and providing a clock signal for synchronizing other components in a system.

What is Beam steering?

5G beam steering is a process of directing radio waves from a transmitting antenna towards a receiving antenna. The process is accomplished by controlling the phase and/or amplitude of the waves emitted from each element in the antenna array. The aim is to create a beam of radio waves that is directed towards the receiving antenna, while minimizing interference to other nearby receivers.

What is Beamforming?

Beamforming is a signal processing technique used in sensor arrays for directional signal transmission or reception. This process involves combining elements in an array in order to direct a wave in a desired direction or at a specific target. The main advantage of beamforming is that it helps to reduce interference from other sources and increases the overall signal-to-noise ratio.

What is C-band?

C-band is a range of electromagnetic frequencies used for various telecommunications purposes, including fixed-satellite service. The name comes from the fact that the frequencies are in the "C" range of the electromagnetic spectrum.

What is CBRS?

The CBRS band is 150 MHz of spectrum in the 3.5 GHz band that is being made available for shared use by the Federal government, commercial wireless service providers, and unlicensed users. The CBRS band is broken up into three tiers of access: General Authorized Access (GAA), Incumbent Access (IA), and Priority Access (PA).
