This new prototype is based on the Qualcomm Technologies' sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G NR end-to-end prototypes which includes both base station and user equipment (UE). The Qualcomm Technologies spectrum sharing testbed is expanded to support Listen-Before-Talk (LBT) technology, wideband waveforms with low latency, and enhancements in the radio and network protocols, on top of which new spectrum sharing technologies are being designed and evaluated.
5G spectrum sharing will expand and enhance the spectrum sharing technologies introduced in LTE, specifically License Assisted Access (LAA) to aggregate across spectrum types, LTE Wi-Fi Aggregation (LWA) to aggregate across technologies, CBRS/License Shared Access (LSA) to share spectrum with incumbents and other deployments, MulteFire™ to operate stand-alone deployments in unlicensed spectrum, as well as introducing new spectrum sharing paradigms.
Qualcomm Technologies' new prototype system will be utilized for technology development in 2017 with field trials together with industry leaders to follow.
