Sprint is a leader in introducing innovative products and services, running our business in a sustainable way and looking out for the interests of consumers. Our executives, experts and others will share information here about lessons we have learned and issues that are important to us.
Today Sprint, Qualcomm Technologies and SoftBank announced an agreement to jointly develop technologies for 5G. This includes developing the 3GPP 5G New Radio (NR) for our 2.5 GHz spectrum, which we anticipate will enable us to deploy our commercial 5G network in late 2019.
At Sprint we're working to make our traditional mobility architectures and software designs more streamlined, efficient, and scalable as we move to a virtualized environment. After four years of research and development with Intel Labs, we’re excited to unveil today our open source effort we call the Clean CUPS Core for Packet Optimization (C3PO).
