SK Telecom and Nokia Target 5G R&D

SK Telecom and Nokia Networks announced the opening of a 5G research and development center at Nokia Networks' Korean office. The center will serve as a venue where researchers from the two companies will study and develop core 5G technologies, including gigabit-level data transmission technology and cloud-based virtualized base stations. Moreover, SK Telecom and Nokia Networks will open a test bed within the end of 2015 to verify and demonstrate 5G technologies.

The companies said they have successfully verified the performance of the co-developed “user plane and control plane separation technique,” one of the key enabling technologies for hybrid core network architecture for 5G.

“SK Telecom is spearheading the efforts to develop 5G enabling technologies and architecture to flawlessly support high-speed transmission of massive data, including immersive multimedia contents,” said Alex Jin-sung Choi, the Chief Technology Officer of SK Telecom. “We will continue to work closely with Nokia Networks to optimize network architecture in preparation for the 5G pilot service demonstration in 2018.”
