China Mobile Brings On Nokia Flexi Zone + AirScale Wi-Fi

China Mobile deployed Nokia's Mobile Edge Computing an ultra-dense heterogeneous network (HetNet) infrastructure to deliver ultra-low latency mobile video at a major motor race in Shanghai.

Specifically, China Mobile used Nokia’s leading Flexi Zone small cells and cloud-based AirScale Wi-Fi to deliver the speeds and latency required to meet all subscribers’ demands with superior quality at the event. Spectators were able to access a selection of live video feeds on their mobile devices with close to zero latency. This included video feeds from different angles of the race, such as from a driver’s cockpit.

Meng Xin, Deputy GM of Shanghai Mobile’s Optimization Center, said: “As a global innovation leader we always strive to deliver the highest quality services to our customers. We set high expectations with a superb mobile data experience at the event in 2015 and we are pleased to work with Nokia again this year with ultra-high capacity small cells network offering our subscribers a unique real-time video experience.”

Mark Atkinson, head of small cells and Wi-Fi business line at Nokia, said: “Today’s connected consumer expects high-quality mobile data service everywhere, not least in a very densely packed stadium. It is testament to our local services expertise and the strength of Nokia’s leading technology that we could exceed the expectations we set during last year’s event, combining an ultra-dense small cell network with Mobile Edge Computing to transform the digital experience for thousands of spectators.”
