'5G will give birth to the next phase of human possibilities'

 "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," these are some of the words of Marcus Weldon, President of Bell Labs and CTO at Nokia in preparation for the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016 in Barcelona slated for 22-25 February.

Nokia recently showcased capabilities of 5G-enabled autonomous cars, industrial networking, interactive virtual reality and other applications on Nokia's 5G multi-service architecture.

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.

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, operators can provide services far beyond voice and data applications to address new business opportunities in many different industries. Nokia Professional Services have expressed readiness to support customers reach nearly 100% network availability in the 5G era.

Prof. Frank H.P. Fitzek, Deutsche Telekom chair of the communication networks group at Technische Universit├Ąt Dresden coordinating the 5G Lab Germany, said: "With our expertise in 5G communication systems, we are collaborating closely with Nokia to realize 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."
