Verizon Plans "5G" Field Tests in 2016

Verizon says it is accelerating its fifth generation network activity by conducting field trials of “5G” technology (technically pre-5G, since the standard does not yet exist) in 2016.

Verizon's field trials will include gear and software from Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Ericsson, Nokia, Qualcomm and Samsung.
As part of the work, 5G network environments, or "sandboxes," are being created in Verizon's Waltham, Mass., and San Francisco Innovation Centers.

"5G is no longer a dream of the distant future," said Roger Gurnani, Verizon EVP and chief information and technology architect for Verizon. "We feel a tremendous sense of urgency to push forward on 5G and mobilize the ecosystem by collaborating with industry leaders and developers to usher in a new generation of innovation."
