Demystifying 5G - How does 5G NR devices identify the network?

Without an LTE connection, there is no 5G NR connection possible. This video explains why a UE (supporting LTE and 5G NR) in 5G NR non-standalone mode always requires an LTE connection as anchor. Learn how a UE is identified to be “5G NR capable” via an LTE base station and is informed where to search for a 5G NR base station (gNB) signal.

The demystifying 5G video series discusses main topics related to 5G including requirements, timeline, frequency bands and waveforms.
