Nokia to showcase its 5G capabilites in Mobile World Congress in Barcelona

Nokia will be using Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to show how 5G applications run on its network infrastructure as operators explore the new business opportunities of an increasingly connected world.

These demonstrations, including eight from Bell Labs, demonstrate how Nokia-developed 5G communications – with massive bandwidth capacity and virtual zero latency – are supporting new applications ranging from autonomous vehicles to remote robotics, and underline its commitment to be a strong leader in next-generation technology.

Nokia’s complete package of 5G communication technologies are providing the backbone to enable the growing proliferation of devices to connect to the internet and to one another in order to open up a wealth of new possibilities – from improved manufacturing efficiencies and vehicle safety to a cleaner environment.

With Nokia’s 5G multi-service network architecture for mobile and fixed networks, the company says operators can provide services far beyond voice and data applications to address new business opportunities in many different industries. Nokia Professional Services can reportedly enable customers to reach nearly 100% network availability in the 5G era.

Nokia 5G era use cases:

  • 5G Autonomous vehicles: 5G facilitates autonomous driving by providing ultra-low latency connectivity for fast-moving autonomous systems, which require constant and virtually uninterrupted communication flow to improve road safety and reduce congestion.
  • 5G Industrial networking connecting robots: An ultra-reliable, low latency 5G network rapidly synchronises interconnected robots steered by remote intelligence. With 5G, manufacturing industries will be better equipped to achieve productivity targets through a unified, computing infrastructure instead of today’s fragmented industrial standards.
  • 5G Stadium experience: Fast, live multi-casting with synchronous data transmission across a large number of smartphones. Users will be able to augment and share their real stadium experience with live video feeds from different camera positions and virtually no delay in transmission.
  • 5G Interactive virtual reality: Through 1-millisecond latency and high throughput, two mobile virtual reality users will be able to collaborate as if they are in the same physical location. Remote collaboration and telepresence will optimise various business applications and processes, including distance learning, manufacturing and the maintenance and repair of machines.
  • 5G Massive capacity: Bell Labs has also developed aggregation technologies that will deliver record-breaking peak rates of 30 Gbps and provide a more consistent and reliable quality of experience for subscribers. This is achieved by aggregating different mobile and fixed technologies into a single, ultra-capacity stream for the end user. These innovations allow operators to maximise the utilisation of their network assets.
  • 5G Massive connectivity: Nokia will demonstrate the transformations in the cellular network to achieve record-breaking numbers of device connections and connectivity with new technology innovations from Bell Labs. Using new waveforms, connectionless messaging and flexible application-based routing, this ultra-low latency support will usher in the new IoT era with the automation of everything.
  • In a proof-of-concept demo, Nokia will introduce the concept of 5G-driven “extreme automation”. This new concept will show how to simplify the operation of a complex array of new 5G use cases.

Prof. Frank H.P. Fitzek, Deutsche Telekom chair of the communication networks group at Technische Universität Dresden coordinating the 5G Lab Germany, said: “With our expertise in 5G communication systems, we are collaborating closely with Nokia to realise a new kind of low-latency 5G services also known as Tactile Internet. Low latency communication, together with security and resilience, enables ubiquitous steering and control of remote objects and devices like driverless connected cars, industry robots, and remote surgery. These capabilities improve efficiency and allow for new use cases in industry sectors like mobility, manufacturing, and healthcare.”download (1)

Marcus Weldon, president of Bell Labs and CTO at Nokia, said: “5G will give birth to the next phase of human possibilities, bringing about the automation of everything. This automation, driven by a smart, invisible network, will create new businesses, give rise to new services and, ultimately, free up more time for people. Nokia is working with our customers today to help build and plan for a journey that will transform network architectures, and have great impact on our lives.”
