Nokia has never stopped setting pace in the world of
telecommunication. It has just partnered with Orange Group on introduction of 5G services. This was announced on 30th
January, 2017.
The 5G network is of course expected to bring noteworthy
improvements over data speeds, network latency and agility, along with the
ability to enable new experiences. It will enable operators

to support the ever
growing number of consumers and billions of IoT devices with different services
that includes smarter cities, connected vehicles, smart factories and offices,
remote healthcare and other related industries.

Nokia and Orange will work on bringing these new services to
reality according to signed agreement between them. They would work with other interested
related associates for the development and launch of applications based on 5G
Aside that, Nokia and Orange will take advantage of the Nokia Flexi Base Station and 5G-ready AirScale radio access portfolio,
the AirFrame data centre platform, telco cloud
and cybersecurity technologies to fashion out applications making use
of the 5G network connectivity.
This effort would embrace application like ultra-broadband leveraging new frequency
bands, cloud RAN
and massive MIMO,
IoT, end-to-end network slicing techniques
and energy efficiency techniques.

The chief innovation and operating officer at Nokia, Marc
Rouanne, in a statement said,
“Through this
collaboration, we will test 5G applications for different industry segments and
measure the benefits of extremely short latency and very high speeds. We are
also delighted to be applying our world-class R&D expertise in Paris and
Lannion in this project.”

We in Nigeria are yet to even have enough of 3G services, 4G
is just for some selected areas even in big cities. NOW THEY ARE TALKING OF 5G
NETWORK. We will definitely get there.
