5G – Creating a new era of communication
The future of mobile communications is likely to be very different to that which we are used to today. While demand for mobile broadband will continue to increase, largely driven by ultra high definition video and better screens, we are already seeing the growing impact of the human possibilities of technology as the things around us become ever more connected.
Nokia 5G at Mobile World Congress 2016
Interview with Jason Elliott, Marketing and Corporate Affairs at Nokia explains the possibilities, status and timeline of 5G.
Every industry will be affected by 5G. Network speeds as high as 10Gbps and with extremely low latency are a driving force for new applications that use massive broadband capabilities. 5G will be the platform enabling growth in many industries, ranging from the IT industry to the car, entertainment, agriculture and manufacturing industries.
CNBC visits Nokia to talk 5G

5G Versatile Radio
Nokia Networks features new 5G radio systems that use advanced antennas and operate in the bands up to 100GHz for extreme throughput and virtual zero latency. While more spectrum below 6 GHz is needed and innovative techniques will be put into operation to make more efficient use of already allocated spectrum, there will be a growing need to unlock new spectrum bands in the 6 to 100 GHz range.

World-first: 5G cmWave Technology – 19.1 Gbps throughput
Proof of Concept demonstrating Nokia Networks’ cmWave technology, setting a new milestone that adds momentum to the standardization of 5G. In a joint 5G trial, SKT and Nokia Networks achieved 19.1 Gbps transmission speed over the air. The demo showcases the potential of 5G to transmit massive amounts of data in the blink of an eye, which would, for example, enable a user to download a full-HD movie in a matter of seconds.

5G System of Systems
5G is going far beyond radio. To achieve built-in flexibility current networks will transform from comprising vertically integrated discrete network elements, to being cognitive, cloud optimized and seamless in operation. Networks will become cognitive to be able to optimize themselves autonomously. Read more

By 2030 there is likely to be as much as 10,000 times more wireless data traffic criss-crossing networks than there was in 2010. With the right approach this can be done in an economically feasible way: growing in line with traffic demand while leveraging existing investments. Nokia Networks has done extensive deployment studies in Chicago, Madrid, New York and Tokyo to find the most efficient deployment strategies. Read more
