This is the configuration that will be the target of early 2019 deployments (in 3GPP terminology, this is NSA 5G NR deployment scenario Option 3). Qualcomm has already announced support for the new standard and has plans to immediately begin development of future 5G products.
A Standalone (SA) variant is expected to be ready for June 2018 that will provide full networking capabilities for end-users and control plane abilities for 5G NR. Both the NSA and SA versions share physical radio air interface aspects.
