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.

Lauri Oksanen, VP of Research and Technology, Nokia Networks 
At Nokia we strive to expand the human potential of the connected world. 5G mobile network speeds as high as 10Gbps and with extremely low latency are a driving force for massive mobile broadband and totally new applications in the future Programmable World. We’re excited to showcase these achievements with our partners. Our progress, coupled with the joint organization of the Brooklyn 5G Summit, underscores our commitment to be a leader in 5G.

Dr. James Truchard, President 7 CEO, NI 
We are excited to collaborate with companies like Nokia as they define 5G. Our software-defined platform based on LabVIEW and PXI is ideal for researching and prototyping cutting-edge technology such as achieving 10 Gbps data rates in the mmWave spectrum.
