Fujitsu & Qualcomm Complete 3GPP Compliant 5G Data Calls Using 3.7 GHz and 28 GHz Bands

Fujitsu Limited and Qualcomm Technologies have achieved non-standalone (NSA) 5G New Radio (NR) data calls on sub-6 GHz and mmWave spectrum bands. The two companies successfully conducted Network-Device Vendor Interoperability Testing (NV-IOT) for NTT DOCOMO, leveraging Fujitsu's commercial 5G base station (gNB) products together with a mobile smartphone form-factor test device, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem and antenna modules with integrated RF transceiver, RF front-end and antenna elements.

These latest NV-IOT testing bi-directional data calls, compliant with the 3GPP release 15 specifications, were completed in mid-July at Fujitsu in Japan. This achievement marks a significant milestone to build a successful 5G end-to-end ecosystem in Japan, composed of 5G network infrastructure from Fujitsu and a broad range of 5G user devices using Qualcomm Technologies' modems and RF Front-end solutions.

These data calls bring 5G technology one step closer to commercial rollout. These live tests deliver on the commitment of Qualcomm Technologies and Fujitsu to make 5G a commercial reality in 2019 and are major milestone in driving 5G network launches around the world.

Fujitsu and Qualcomm Technologies look to continue to strengthen relationships with companies that aim to provide 5G commercial services. The two companies are committed to support customers worldwide - encouraging the development of digital technologies and new innovative services utilizing the fast speeds, large capacity and ultra-low latency supported by 5G.
