5G is massively broadband
    reaching into frequencies never previously thought of for mobile wireless — above 3.4 GHz, and even to 30 GHz and beyond.

    5G is ultra efficient
    for streaming data, taking full advantage of carrier aggregation and massive MIMO.

    5G is fixed wireless
    giving more choices to get 1 Gb/s connections to your home and business.

    5G is wireless infrastructure
    using beam steering and high-power GaN, based on the technologies in phased-array antennas for defense.

    5G is low-latency
    for real-time connections enabling autonomous vehicles and augmented/virtual reality.

    5G is the backbone of the Internet of Things
    connecting more than a trillion devices to the internet in the next 10 years.

    Qorvo is the standard setter — participating in standards bodies and partnering with wireless carriers — to define 5G RF for the future.

    5G Complements the 4G LTE Network

    • 5G will start as an overlay of the 4G LTE network.
    • The 5G radio specification (called 5G NR for "new radio") will have both Non-Standalone (NSA) and Standalone (SA) operation.
    • NSA is an evolutionary step for carriers to offer 5G services without building out a 5G core network, until they add the full SA 5G core later.
    • Starting in 2019, 5G will encompass major new capabilities.

    Qorvo connects RF for all 5G use cases — more than just cellular and Wi-Fi.

    5G will overlay the 4G LTE network in the coming years. The RF function, frequency band, power level and other performance requirements determine which semiconductor technology is the best fit.
