SK Telecom, South Korea's largest mobile carrier, and the United States' biggest telco Verizon will work together to develop 5G technical specifications, the companies have announced.

Verizon and SK Telecom will also conduct joint studies to identify 5G use cases and applications, they added.

Earlier in February, the two telecommunications carriers, together with Korean telco KT and its Japanese counterpart NTT Docomo, formed an alliance called the 5G Open Trial Specification Alliance, to set the testing standard for the next-generation network technology.

Verizon and SK Telecom will also further cooperate in the Open Computer Project (OCP), which is focused on redesigning hardware tech to better support computing infrastructure, and Mobile Central Office Rearchitected as a Datacenter (M-CORD).

Earlier in June, SK Telecom and Ericsson demonstrated programmable 5G infrastructure at the former's lab in South Korea.

Together with Samsung, SK Telecom launched a commercial nationwide Internet of Things-dedicated network in July.
