In One Minute, What is VoNR?

Qualcomm Wireless Academy is a program of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and/or its subsidiaries. Qualcomm products mentioned within this post are offered by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and/or its subsidiaries.

VoNR (Voice over New Radio) is a 5G technology that enables voice communication services over 5G networks. It is designed to replace traditional voice services (such as 2G, 3G, and 4G VoLTE) with a more efficient and reliable solution.

VoNR uses the same 5G technology that is used for data transmission to provide high-quality voice services with low latency, improved network coverage, and enhanced security features. It also provides a cost-effective solution for carriers, as they can use the same 5G network infrastructure to support both data and voice services in their 5G Standalone (SA) networks.

While VoNR has some similarities to VoLTE, it has many key differences as well. Please see below for an overview of the key similarities and differences between the two technologies:


Learn More with 5G VoNR Training through the Qualcomm Wireless Academy

At the Qualcomm Wireless Academy (QWA), we offer both a VoNR technical course and advanced workshop for wireless engineers. Both courses are offered through our flexible eLearning format and are taught by experienced engineers from Qualcomm Technologies. Click on either of the links below to learn more and to request training, or request training here.

Please note that both courses above require a company-to-company agreement to access, so we can only offer these courses to individuals through their companies.
