Mobile Edge Computing used to support live tests of assisted driving

Continental, Deutsche Telekom, Fraunhofer and Nokia Networks say they have demonstrated communication between vehicles via the LTE cell network with latencies of less than 20 milliseconds. The companies carried out demonstrations of assisted braking and co-operative overtaking using Mobile Edge Computing technology to site application software on compute platforms co-sited at LTE base stations. For the demos, a section of the Deutsche Telekom network was equipped with “cloudlet” MEC technology from Nokia Networks, and upgraded with position-locating technology developed by Fraunhofer ESK. This combination delivered signal…

Nokia Networks gets 5G welcome to China Mobile Research Institute

Parties to combine on 5G research and on fostering Standards cooperation In the past two years, Nokia has signed not one, but two billion Euro framework agreements for the supply of LTE equipment to China Mobile, so it would make sense for the two companies to also combine on research into new mobile technologies. That’s probably why Nokia has just become the first network equipment manufacturer from outside China to sign a 5G-related MoU with China Mobile’s research arm, CMRI.…

Nokia Networks clarifies and revisits 5G concept architecture

Can you unveil a concept? It seems like a bit of a PR move to put out a whole press release because you have been doing some thinking. That is what Nokia Networks did today, as it “unveiled” a concept architecture for 5G networks. But despite the “launch” tag that Nokia Networks has put on this, Inside5G readers should really see this as revision – a useful primer on how it might be possible to build the sort of dynamic,…

German University To Lead Research for Nokia’s 5G Architecture

The University of Kaiserslautern has pledged to bring new thinking to Nokia Networks after the Finnish giant pledged to sponsor its research into 5G network architecture. “network architecture will play an important role” With 5G set to be made up of complex multi-layer and multi-technology networks, changes are required in telecommunications architecture. Nokia Networks has decided to link up with the German university, which it describes as ‘an academic leader in network architecture research’. ‘5G is not only about new radio…

5Qs on 5G: With NYU WIRELESS

Professor Elza Erkip is at the forefront of NYU WIRELESS, a research centre at the Polytechnic School of Engineering at New York University. The centre recently hosted the second Brooklyn 5G Summit alongside Nokia Networks, and Erkip was on hand to speak about what the annual forum is all about. What is the purpose of the summit and what did it hope to achieve? The Brooklyn 5G Summit is an invitation-only event co-sponsored by Nokia Networks and NYU WIRELESS, the…

More Mitsubishi Antenna Tests For 5G

Mitsubishi Electric is showing a 5G Active Phased Array Antenna prototype in conjunction with Nokia Networks at the Brooklyn 5G Summit this week. ““APAA” technology is already used commercially” Whilst the “APAA” technology is already used commercially in satellites and other systems, the Japanese company is adapting it to use the 3.5GHz frequency band, with four-beam spatial multiplexing achieved with a multi-element antenna as well as beamforming control of the direction of radio signal transmission and reception for two-dimensional vertical and horizontal scanning.…
