Nokia To Trial 5G Networks In 2017

Nokia-To-Trial-5G-Networks-In-2017Nokia is optimistic to trial 5G networks in 2017 as it is showcasing AirScale Radio Access to support initial deployments at the third annual Brooklyn 5G Summit.

Nokia will also showcase advancements in end-to-end network slicing and will also show mmWave small cells that are fully autonomous, can be deployed anywhere and deliver the low latency and flexibility critical to the IoT.

Nokia and NYU WIRELESS Research Center co-sponsoring third annual Brooklyn 5G Summit, live streamed by IEEE Communications Society Forum brings together broad set of industries to discuss 5G technologies, support evolving Internet of Things services and business models.

Nokia is bringing together leaders from the mobile, automotive and healthcare industries, as well as top academics and government officials for the third annual Brooklyn 5G Summit. The event showcases demonstrations and the latest achievements towards making 5G a reality, and ways of accelerating the development of new, 5G-powered Internet of Things (IoT) innovations across multiple industries.

The Brooklyn 5G Summit seeks to increase the pace of development in the telecom and non-telecom sectors through the accelerated delivery of 5G technologies for critical industry needs. A future of mobility report recently released by Bell Labs Consulting, a division of Nokia Bell Labs, forecast that only 81 percent of 2020 global data demand can be met unless the deployment of 5G networks is accelerated.

Nokia and the NYU WIRELESS Research Center are assembling executives from many diverse backgrounds and industry sectors. On the agenda are keynote speakers and panelists from AT&T, the Federal Communications Commission, C Spire, Intel, NTT DoCoMo, Qualcomm, Scripps Clinic and Institute, T-Mobile, Toyota, Verizon and Vodafone.

5G network slicing technology transforms a single physical network into a multi-service fabric to meet the needs of any industry: automotive, eHealth, logistics, manufacturing, utilities and more. By creating virtualized instances across the RAN, core and transport parts of the network, each slice precisely meets capacity demands and service requirements while also optimizing network performance.

Nokia is simplifying 5G small cells by removing all wires from the base station to enable “drop-and-leave” deployment. By dramatically reducing power and backhaul costs that can account for more than 50 percent of radio access deployment costs today, this new technology supports the optimal placement for small cells to enhance network capacity.

Ted Rappaport, the Ernst Weber/David Lee Professor of Electrical Engineering at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering and founder of NYU WIRELESS said, “We are pleased to play a major role as a convener and producer of basic knowledge to bring wireless into its renaissance over the next several years, and are deeply grateful to Nokia and the 17 industrial affiliate sponsors of NYU WIRELESS who support our work and allow us to produce the Brooklyn 5G Summit every year.”

Marcus Weldon, president of Nokia Bell Labs and Nokia CTO said, “We are working with operators to create pre-standard implementations and will start trialing 5G networks in 2017 to test performance and new business models. This will define the right 5G standards, based on a clear understanding of commercial and human value, rather than simple technological innovation.”
