Nokia and AWS to collaborate on 5G and IoT use cases for service providers

Nokia and AWS to collaborate

Nokia and AWS collaboration

Nokia announces collaboration with AWS to improve cloud migration and SD-WAN services for enterprises. The collaboration also works on the development of 5G and IoT use cases for service providers.

Nokia and AWS creating new 5G and edge cloud strategies and guidance including reference architectures. The companies commercializing IoT use cases using AWS Greengrass, Amazon Machine Learning, Nokia Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC), and the Nokia Impact platform. Nokia provides consulting, design, integration, migration, and operation for infrastructure and applications for service providers’ AWS implementation.

Networking and IT infrastructure

The partnership formed between networking and IT infrastructure, Nokia chief strategy Officer Kathrin Buvac said. This is a wide-ranging collaboration, spanning our services capabilities in application migration, SD-WAN from Nuage Networks, 5G, and IoT, allowing new growth opportunities for our top customers across both the service provider and large enterprise market segments.

According to Nokia communications service providers and enterprises need solutions to address the connectivity needs of cloud-based applications, such as optimizing latency, virtualized network and routing services, and solutions for the IoT.

It also provides low-latency connections for the most advanced real-time applications, such as precision machine control in robotic surgery. Importantly, 5G will take advantage of unlicensed spectrum, which means wireless private networks will be readily achievable. Nokia engaged with around 40 operators globally on 5G trials.

Nokia attained average combined download and upload speeds of around 4.84Gbps and latency of 2.8 milliseconds. By using, 8×8 Multiple-Input Multiple Output, and 64 Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) technologies across the 4.5GHz spectrum band, with 200MHz cell bandwidth.

These 5G trials followed StarHub and Nokia’s demonstration of 600Mbps data transmission speeds over 4G using 4×4 MIMO and carrier aggregation.

Nokia is also deploying small cells with carriers to increase the density of networks as a precursor to 5G.

Nokia has also collaborated with Intel on pre-standard 5G radio technologies, networking solutions, and interoperability.
