Nokia Networks, Wednesday announced that the company is showcasing 5G speed of 10Gbps peak rate system over the air at 73GHz (mmWave), in partnership with National Instruments (NI) at the second annual Brooklyn 5G Summit that started yesterday. The speed is fast enough to download a full-length HD movie on a mobile phone in a matter of seconds, said Nokia Networks. The 10Gbps system demonstrated uses 2x2 MIMO on single carrier Null Cyclic Prefix modulation and frame size of 100 micro seconds to achieve low latency and impressive peak rates.
The summit is jointly organized by Nokia Networks and NYU WIRELESS Research Center at the New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering. Nokia Networks and NYU WIRELESS co-host the event , bringing together wireless/mobile industry R&D leaders in academia, business and government to explore the future of 5G wireless technology. Special focus this year is on spectrum assets above 6GHz, progress in channel modeling at these higher frequencies, and massive MIMO systems for 5G.
According to Nokia Networks, the use of new spectrum bands is one of the key ingredients in future 5G networks, enabling the delivery of ‘virtually zero’ latency to support such applications as tactile Internet, connected cars and augmented reality. This extremely fast broadband speed will offer users enough capacity wherever they go to perform every function they desire without a drop in speed or connection, no matter how many people are connected at the same time, added Nokia.
