Start building commercial 5G networks today

Nokia 5G FIRST allows operators to address the near-infinite capacity demands of new applications anywhere - seamlessly and securely. This industry-first 5G solution provides innovations that will power the global nervous system.

With 5G FIRST, operators can gain a first-to-market advantage by launching 5G use cases before the standards have been finalized. 5G FIRST builds on our commercial 5G Nokia AirScale and AirFrame platforms to provide a versatile solution that spans the network.

The 5G FIRST solution includes:

We are also building a 5G community as part of the ng Connect Program. Our aim is to bring innovative companies together to collaborate and realize a new generation of business.

Versatile 5G Radio

We are launching new 5G radio systems that use advanced antennas and operate in bands up to 100 GHz to deliver extreme throughput and virtual zero latency. Operators will need more spectrum below 6 GHz and innovative techniques that make more efficient use of existing spectrum. There is also a growing need to unlock new spectrum bands in the 6-100 GHz range. Discover Versatile 5G Radio


Nokia Path to 5G


World-first 5G cmWave technology delivers 19.1 Gbps throughput

A Nokia cmWave proof of concept has set a new milestone that will accelerate 5G standardization. In a joint 5G trial, SKT and Nokia achieved a 19.1 Gbps transmission speed over the air. This trial proves the potential of 5G to rapidly transmit massive amounts of data. At this speed, a user can download a full HD movie in a matter of seconds. Watch the video

5G Transition

By 2030, wireless networks will need to handle up to 10,000 times more data traffic than they did in 2010. Operators need networks that can grow in line with traffic demand while using existing investments. We have conducted extensive studies in Chicago, Madrid, New York, and Tokyo to identify the most efficient deployment strategies. Get insights on 5G transition
