KT, NTT DOCOMO, SK Telecom and Verizon have joined hands to become the initial members of a new global initiative, the 5G Open Trial Specification Alliance to develop an aligned 5G trial specifications. The trial specification will cover multiple spectrum bands, including bands above and below 6 GHz.

The 5G Open Trial Specification Alliance will focus on 5G radio interface trial activities and aims to provide the wireless industry with the ability to test and validate key technical components. The development of the trial specification will allow a variety of different industry partners (network vendors, chipset/device vendors, operators, test equipment vendors, etc.) to join and contribute. 

Operators have already started trial initiatives on 5G with coordination being underway. Technical trials are expected to be occurring in the 2016-2018 timeframe.
