5G Implementation Guidelines - GSMA - July 2019

5G is becoming a reality as early adopters have already commercialized data-oriented 5G networks in 2018 and are planning to launch consumer mobile 5G in 2019 and beyond.

Whilst early adopters do not necessarily require guidance, there are still majority of the operator community that are yet to launch commercial 5G services. This document intends to provide a checklist for operators that are planning to launch 5G networks in NSA (non-standalone) Option 3 configuration.
