For MNOs, the ability to run field tests with all commercial devices available in the market is key because operators need to test with the very same devices that their subscribers are using.

At these early stages of 5G NR, additional interest rises from the differences in performance between devices, and their interoperability with the 5G NR networks. Rigorous testing is needed to verify that the 5G NR devices are working as expected in a live network.
