Nokia, Tuesday previewed a demonstration that it plans to present at Mobile World Congress later this month, showingcasing how 5G applications run on its network infrastructure as operators explore the new business opportunities of an increasingly connected world.

These demonstrations, including eight from Bell Labs, showcase how Nokia-developed 5G communications - with massive bandwidth capacity and virtual zero latency - are supporting new applications ranging from autonomous vehicles to remote robotics, and underline Nokia's commitment to be a strong leader in next-generation technology. The planned showcase includes a record-breaking peak rates of 30 Gbps speed.

Following are Nokia 5G era use cases that the company plans to showcase at the event:

  • 5G autonomous vehicles - 5G facilitates autonomous driving by providing ultra-low latency connectivity for fast-moving autonomous systems, which require constant and virtually uninterrupted communication flow to improve road safety and reduce congestion.

  • 5G industrial networking connecting robots - An ultra-reliable, low latency 5G network rapidly synchronizes interconnected robots steered by remote intelligence.

  • 5G stadium experience - Fast, live multi-casting with synchronous data transmission across a large number of smartphones. Users will be able to augment and share their real stadium experience with live video feeds from different camera positions and virtually no delay in transmission.

  • 5G interactive virtual reality - Through 1 millisecond latency and high throughput, two mobile virtual reality users will be able to collaborate as if they are in the same physical location.

5G will give birth to the next phase of human possibilities, bringing about the automation of everything. This automation, driven by a smart, invisible network, will create new businesses, give rise to new services and, ultimately, free up more time for people.
