Nokia Spain has become Gold Collaborator of the 5TONIC Open 5G Lab headquartered at IMDEA Networks in Madrid (Spain).
Together with Nokia Bell Labs site in Madrid, Nokia will collaborate with Telefónica in the implementation of a testbed for media & entertainment services. The objective of the testbed is to help Telefónica customize and enhance the quality of the user experience for this use case.
A first version of this use case will be shown at the upcoming EuCNC 2019 conference in Valencia, as well as at the 5G Forum. The collaboration will extend for the duration of the project, which is scheduled to finish in July 2021.
Nokia and Telefónica will deploy a complete 5G network infrastructure in the 5TONIC lab to carry out this use case. The infrastructure will include both radio access and core networks, as well as an edge computing platform that will be tested as an alternative to Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) for video services provided to 5G-connected users.
