Achieving the 5G vision will require new technology innovations that deliver unparalleled levels of scalability, capability and efficiency. Qualcomm inventions have continuously been at the forefront of wireless evolution, pushing wireless boundaries so you and your world stay connected. And now, just as we did in 3G and 4G, Qualcomm is driving the technology inventions to make 5G a reality.

Work has begun on defining, standardizing and designing the new OFDM-based 5G New Radio (NR) as part of the global 3GPP standard. 5G NR technology is being designed to support a wide variation of device-types, services and deployments. It is also being designed to get the most out of every bit of spectrum across a wide array of available spectrum bands and regulatory paradigms.
Optimized OFDM-based waveforms and multiple access and a flexible framework to efficiently multiplex 5G wireless services.
Advanced antenna techniques to deliver robust mobile performance at bandwidth-rich spectrum bands above 24 GHz.
New 5G inventions that will make more spectrum available, increase utilization, and bring new deployment opportunities.
We are progressing LTE capabilities towards our vision for 5G wireless networks with a rich roadmap of technologies that expand the benefits of LTE to new use cases and new services. Explore the new LTE technologies that are bringing the future forward faster.
Extending the benefits of LTE to unlicensed spectrum for new small cell deployments—designed for fair coexistence with Wi-Fi.
C-V2X gives vehicles the ability to connect with each other, the cloud, pedestrians, infrastructure—basically everything.
LTE IoT extends battery life, reduces device complexity, and enhances coverage for low data rate applications in the Internet of Things.
Cellular connectivity will be key for coordinated operation and control of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles enabling a growing set of use cases.
Simultaneous 5G, 4G and Wi-Fi multi-connectivity, along with multimode devices, will ensure a seamless and phased 5G wireless networks introduction that fully leverages 4G and Wi-Fi investments.
Realizing our vision for a hyper-connected world also requires new levels of intelligence and integration on-devices, access nodes, machines, and things. Qualcomm is inventing cognitive technologies to create a world where devices and things can see, hear, perceive, and anticipate our needs and act intuitively.
5G leadership is not measured by a company's promises for winning the race, but instead its ability, in collaboration with the ecosystem, to execute the essential milestones on the path to standard-compliant 5G commercial network launches in a timely manner.
