Nokia has defined a path to 5G that will enable operators to meet the demands of end users while addressing the new opportunities created by IoT and increased machine-to-machine communications for smart cities, automated driving, connected healthcare, transportation and other vertical industries. Using the Nokia 4.5G Pro and 4.9G technologies as critical steps in the path to 5G, operators will be able to increase network capacity and speeds where and when they need it.
At IEEE Globecom 2016, Nokia will build on the launches, earlier this year, of the 5G-ready AirScale radio portfolio and the commercial introduction of 4.5G Pro, to demonstrate a number of key, complementary innovations that will form the basis of dynamic, intelligent and sustainable 5G networks of the future.
In addition to the technology demonstrations, Hossein Moiin, the Chief Technology Officer of Nokia's Mobile Networks business group, will participate in an executive panel session to identify the path to 5G, discussing the business and technology opportunities as well as the challenges that will be created.
Hossein Moiin, Chief Technology Officer of the Mobile Networks at Nokia said: "We have defined a technology path to 5G that will allow operators to deliver enhancements in capacity and speed and take advantage of the new possibilities created by the connected world. While mobile broadband demand will continue to be driven by use of ultra-high definition video, the ever-growing number of connected machines as well as the need for low-latency and ultra-reliable networks will drive the creation of new opportunities for mobile communications networks.
