MV31: displaying 5G icon on 5G-NSA networks

===================================
How to display 5G Network Status Icon is a topic which has been asked by many our customers.

The basic rules of displaying 5G icon have been orginally discussed with GSMA, and was published via

1) "GSMA 5G Implementation Guidelines"
https://www.gsma.com/futurenetworks/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/5G-Implem...
2) "GSMA 5G Status Indicator"
https://www.gsma.com/futurenetworks/resolution_centre/5g-status-indicator/

(see attachment)

Furthermore, within 3GPP, there was a Liaison statement S2-175303:
https://portal.3gpp.org/ngppapp/CreateTdoc.aspx?****=view&contributionId...

However, 3GPP specifications are not expected to define or discuss Service or RAT indicators in the User Interface themselves, so that many MNOs follow their own rules on displaying 5G icon on 5G-NSA networks

Refer to a discussion at: https://www.lightreading.com/mobile/5g/your-5g-icon-is-virtually-meaning...

======================================

On MV31, a set of MNO profiles have been implemented, in order to follow the different configurations by the different MNOs
