What Is 5G?

  • 5G is massively broadband
    Opening more wireless frequencies — above 3.4 GHz, and even to 30 GHz and beyond.

  • 5G is ultra efficient
    Streaming data, taking full advantage of carrier aggregation, dynamic spectrum sharing and massive MIMO.

  • 5G is fixed wireless
    1 Gb/s connections to your home and business.

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

  • 5G is low-latency
    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.

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.
