Nokia, China Mobile to jointly explore use of 5G for vertical markets

Sunday 25 February 2018 | 20:56 CET | News
Nokia and China Mobile have signed an agreement to jointly investigate how China Mobile can extend its service offerings for vertical markets using 5G. The research will focus on how industries could benefit from the growth of smart cities, smart transportation and intelligent video analytics. With the deployment of 5G, China Mobile is expected to be able to leverage network slicing to support new services and businesses simultaneously with differing service level requirements.

Under the terms of the deal, which extends Nokia and China Mobile's existing 5G cooperation, the companies will jointly research and trial use-cases leveraging Nokia 5G Future X network architecture as well as NB-IoT and MEC.

The research, which will take place at China Mobile's 5G joint innovation lab, will aim to better understand how industries can be integrated into the smart city ecosystem to take advantage of the massive new connectivity of people and things; how businesses such as logistics and car rental companies can benefit from the introduction of 5G-connected automated vehicles. Nokia and China Mobile will also expand the existing Car2X trial ecosystem in Wuzhen to advance the use of automated vehicles, as well as technologies that improve vehicle safety. The research is also intended to enhance future network architecture security using intelligent network protection techniques.
