Nokia Revealed to Launch Global IoT Under its WING

Nokia Revealed to Launch Global IoT Under its WING

Nokia has announced to launch Worldwide I0T network as a service which it will launch at Mobile World Congress this month. The offering, which it has dubbed WING (worldwide IoT network grid), is designed to act as a border less IoT network, enabling customers to ‘seamlessly’ connect business units around the world under one proposition. One of the current drawbacks of the IoT world is an inability for multi-nationals to offer IoT services as there is not yet a multi-national IoT platform which can support such ambitions. Nokia can now offer a novel service for a much-hyped segment. Although Nokia may be the first to market with such an idea, it would be a safe bet there will be others to follow shortly.


Nokia, Ooredoo demonstrate 10 Gbps broadband speed

Nokia and Ooredoo Qatar have successfully demonstrated that 5G technology can deliver broadband speeds of 10 Gbps and reduced latency of 1 millisecond, as part of the operator’s contribution to the Qatar National Vision 2030 goal to boost the knowledge-based economy. Telecompaper reported

Google, Intel, Nokia, Qualcomm and others form 3.5 GHz alliance

Some of the world’s biggest technology companies have decided to join forces in order to work out how best to exploit the 150 MHz of unlicensed spectrum that has been made available for commercial use. The spectrum is in the 3.5 GHz band (specifically 3550-3700 MHz) and is being referred to as the Citizens Radio Broadband Service, so the joint effort is called the CBRS Alliance. The founding members consist of: Google, Intel, Nokia, Qualcomm, Ruckus Wireless and Federated Wireless. This partnership was first publicly discussed back at MWC this year but it seems to have taken them half a year to get their act together.


Ericsson 5G field tests with Sprint yield 4Gbps speeds

Ericsson has sought to rival Nokia by getting in on the Sprint 5G party, in which it claims to have achieved 4 Gbps download speeds. The vendor joined Sprint’s efforts in delivering live 4K broadcasting of the Copa America soccer tournament taking place across the country. While Nokia chipped in for the first trial down in California at the Levi’s Stadium, where it used a live milli metre wave system running at 73 GHz, the next trial in Philadelphia saw Sprint achieve the same 4K streaming goal using a whopping 400 MHz of spectrum. Unsurprisingly, Sprint claims it saw some eye-watering speeds being achieved on the ground by users.



Nokia, Coriant Claim First Mobile Backhaul SON Solution

Finnish kit vendor and optical networking specialist Coriant have announced what they claimed is the first ever solution brining self-organising network (SON) technology to mobile backhaul. Nokia claimed the solution offers the same level of functionality but with 20% less transport infrastructure than in current networks.

The solution combines advanced analytics and software defined networking (SDN), and according to Nokia it reconfigures network resources based on analysis of the factors impacting customer experience and service level agreements. The vendor claimed the technology reverses the traditional order where services have to adapt to the networks.

“Coriant’s innovation in SDN is leading the revolution to programmable, service-aware data-optical networks. Through this joint programme with Nokia Networks, Coriant is showing how it is enabling services as the driver of programmable mobile backhaul and fixed-mobile converged networks.”

Paul Smelters, VP of Data Networks at Coriant said

Nokia said the technology’s proof of concept outlines the solution as creating a programmable, self-aware mobile backhaul network, which monitors user and control plane traffic as well as network quality.

“This proof of concept is the first of its kind to provide a fully automated capability for self-configuration and self-optimization of multi-vendor mobile backhaul networks using SDN as the management layer.”

Hossein Moiin, Executive VP and CTO at Nokia Networks said.

“It is a major step towards teaching networks to be self-aware and realizing our Technology Vision 2020. It also reduces total cost of transmitting each bit by making transport networks intelligent enough to take network planning and daily operational decisions in the most cost-effective way on their own.”

The solution, which on top of Nokia’s SON technology and Coriant’s SDN controller consists of the Coriant 8600 Smart Routers, Nokia LTE base-stations and System Architecture Evolution (SAE) gateway, will be demonstrated at the Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona.
