Tele2 Russia, Nokia demonstrate 5G capabilities

Mobile operator Tele2 Russia and Nokia have tested 5G mobile communication technologies, reports Telecompaper on July 9, 2017. During the trial, Tele2 Russia and Nokia presented various scenarios for 5G. The first scenario showed how 5G solutions can be used to control unmanned cars and to organize smart transport management in urban environment.

The second scenario demonstrated the operation of 5G-based video analytics: the technology can fully automate video surveillance and set up smart perimeter security. The system analyses trajectories of movement.

The tests were based on Nokia AirFrame (Mobile Edge Computing solution) and AirScale hardware operating in 4.5 GHz frequency range. The companies used MIMO 8×8 technology with eight antennas at the base station and at subscriber equipment to support multichannel video transmission. The solution boosted data rates four-fold, in comparison to MIMO 2х2 technology in LTE networks.

Tele2 Russia and Nokia demonstrated the capabilities of 5G mobile communications technologies as part of a cooperation agreement signed in 2016. The companies agreed to join their efforts to accelerate 5G development.
