Nokia Networks Hits 10Gbps Over the Air at 73 GHz

Nokia Networks announced it has achieved a 10Gbps peak rate system over the air at 73GHz (mmWave), paving the way for future 5G networks.  The technology is being demonstrated this week at the Brooklyn 5G Summit, jointly organized by Nokia Networks and the university research center NYU WIRELESS.

Also being demonstrated is NYU WIRELESS' updated prototype of a "channel sounder," which is a system for how millimeter waves propagate in indoor and outdoor environments.  Its earlier version of this system provided the first validation that mmWave cellular networks were feasible. The organization's second demonstration will be a millimeter-wave (mmWave) communication link using an LTE-like transmission but in the higher frequencies bands for future cellular.

Plenary sessions at this week's event include:

  • Gerhard P. Fettweis, TU Dresden, "5G Tactile Internet: mm-Waves versus cm-Waves"
  • Tom Keathley, SVP, AT&T, "The Road to 5G: Requirements, Capabilities and Expectations"
  • Hossein Moiin, CTO & EVP, Nokia, "Expanding the human possibilities with 5G"
  • Seizo Onoe, CTO, NTT DoCoMo
  • Minerva Tantoco, CTO of New York City
  • Edward G. Tiedemann, Jr., SVP, Qualcomm, "MIMO Technology: Past, Present and Future"
  • James Truchard, CEO, National Instruments, "Next-Generation Tools for 5G Research".
"At NYU WIRELESS, we have witnessed an industry eagerly developing this technology that holds the potential to increase wireless data capacity a thousand-fold," said NYU Professor Theodore (Ted) Rappaport, Founder and Director of NYU WIRELESS. "Part of the reason for the excitement is because early studies at our research center and elsewhere are demonstrating feasibility, yet we must maintain this momentum."
