NI is working with Nokia’s Networks business to collaborate on advanced research related to 5G wireless technologies such as exploring peak data rates and cell-edge rates in excess of 10Gbps and 100Mbps, respectively.
By using NI’s integrated hardware and software baseband platform, Nokia plans to expedite its research and rapidly demonstrate the viability of high-frequency millimeter wave as an option for 5G radio access technology. Lauri Oksanen, Vice President of Research and Technology at Nokia, says: “Our experimental 5G Proof-of-Concept system will be implemented using NI’s LabVIEW and PXI baseband modules, which is the state-of-art experimental system for rapid prototyping of 5G air interface available today.”
Eric Starkloff, NI Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing, says: “We are thrilled to work with Nokia on this project and others involving wireless research. Our software-defined platform based on LabVIEW and PXI is ideal for researching and prototyping standards such as 5G.”
