Nokia showcases 5G potential in Nigeria

Finnish multinational telecommunications company Nokia is set to host an event tagged the “Innovation Days” with the aim of showcasing its 5G technology in Lagos. The event is packaged to display how the emerging telecommunications technology can revamp the way of life of people and work as well as boost the industrial productivity in Nigeria.

Nokia also revealed that it will display how 5G technology can be advantageous to telecom operators, enterprises including the public sector and individuals across Nigeria.

The company in a statement said, “Visitors also can experience how private LTE can streamline operations for both mines and airports as well as how Nokia’s worldwide IoT network grid (WING) as a service enables rapid IoT revenue expansion with minimal investment and less risk. In addition, Nokia will showcase its agriculture-as-a-service solution, which makes IoT more accessible to small-scale farmers. In another demonstration, the company will show how its cloud-native core is fundamental to enable bandwidth-intensive and low-latency use cases in the areas of industrial automation, public sector, and consumer entertainment.”

Part of the highlights of the Innovation Days 5G demonstrations in Lagos will feature Nokia use high definition 360° capable cameras with pattern recognition, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and software solutions to track the movement of intruders at fences and send alerts when anomalies are detected. This can be employed to forestall poaching, which is a major challenge across the African continent.

According to iAfrikan, a segment ‘industries use case’ will feature the use of self-learning AI video solutions to monitor the manufacturing process to improve quality control and efficiency in factories, while the connected retail solution aims to assist online fashion retailers to reduce the percentage of returns due to incorrect sizing while bringing the physical retail industry closer to online. Nokia will also demonstrate the unique benefits of Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC) through 5G to consumer applications such as online gaming, immersive entertainment, haptic capabilities (touch, feel) and e-health.
