Nokia Networks showcases 5G speed of 10Gbps with NI at the
Brooklyn 5G Summit
Nokia Networks and NYU WIRELESS co-host the second annual Brooklyn 5G
Summit, bringing together wireless/mobile industry R&D leaders around the world
10Gbps speed is one of several demonstrations to further spark discussions on
spectrum assets above 6GHz and progress in channel modeling at higher
Brooklyn, New York, USA – 8 April 2015
Nokia Networks will be demonstrating with NI a 10Gbps peak rate system over the air
at 73GHz (mmWave), paving the way for future 5G networks. The demonstration will
be highlighted at the Brooklyn 5G Summit, which is being jointly organized by Nokia
Networks and NYU WIRELESS Research Center at the New York University
Polytechnic School of Engineering. The second annual summit will be held April 8-10
in Brooklyn, New York.
The invitation-only summit brings together wireless and mobile industry research and
development leaders in academia, business and government to explore the future of 5G
wireless technology. Special focus this year is on spectrum assets above 6GHz, progress in
channel modeling at these higher frequencies, and massive MIMO systems for 5G. The use
of new spectrum bands is one of the key ingredients in future 5G networks, enabling the
delivery of ‘virtually zero’ latency to support such applications as tactile Internet, connected
cars and augmented reality. The 10Gbps peak rate is one of several highlighted
demonstrations to show progress on these topics.
The industry has widely adopted Nokia’s view that 5G will be about people and things with
three categories of use cases: massive broadband that delivers gigabytes of bandwidth on
demand; critical machine-type communication that allows for immediate, synchronous eyehand feedback enabling remote control over robots; and massive machine-type
communication that connects billions of sensors and machines.

10Gbps demonstration details at a glance:
This extremely fast broadband speed will offer users enough capacity wherever they
go to perform every function they desire without a drop in speed or connection, no
matter how many people are connected at the same time.
o For example, users will have the ability to download a full-length HD movie to
their phone in a matter of seconds rather than minutes. Also, video chats will
be so immersive that users will feel like they can reach out and touch the
other person right through the screen.
o 8K quality films in 3D will be available to view, which is 16 times the pixel
count of full HD.
The 10Gbps system being demonstrated uses 2x2 MIMO using single carrier Null
Cyclic Prefix modulation and frame size of 100 micro seconds to achieve low latency
and impressive peak rates.
The 10Gbps peak rate is one of the ways to meet 5G requirements. Nokia Networks will also
feature two additional demonstrations of critical components. These include:
A high bandwidth system at new spectrum bands.
A demonstration of how massive MIMO and beamsteering can be achieved with
phased array technology, using a large number of antenna elements.
o Nokia Networks’ use of the 3.5GHz frequency band, currently the highest
cellular band in use, will demonstrate beamforming with the Mitsubishi
Electric 3.5GHz Active Antenna connected to the Nokia Flexi Base station as
a transmitter.
Lauri Oksanen, Vice President of Research and Technology at Nokia Networks, said:
“At Nokia we strive to expand the human potential of the connected world. 5G mobile
network speeds as high as 10Gbps and with extremely low latency are a driving force for
massive mobile broadband and totally new applications in the future Programmable World.
We’re excited to showcase these achievements with our partners. Our progress, coupled
with the joint organization of the Brooklyn 5G Summit, underscores our commitment to be a
leader in 5G.”
Dr. James Truchard, President and CEO of NI, said:
“We are excited to collaborate with companies like Nokia as they define 5G. Our softwaredefined platform based on LabVIEW and PXI is ideal for researching and prototyping cuttingedge technology such as achieving 10 Gbps data rates in the mmWave spectrum.”
Both Nokia Networks and NI are affiliated industry sponsors of NYU WIRELESS.
In partnership with IEEE Communications Society, the event will be live streamed and
recorded. The live stream is available via this link and is free of charge for IEEE members
only. Media representatives interested in the live steam should contact Nokia Networks or
