NI to conduct 5G technology research with Nokia

NI will work with Nokia’s Networks business to conduct research on 5G including exploring peak data rates and cell-edge rates in excess of 10 Gbps and 100 Mbps, respectively.

Nokia will utilize NI’s integrated hardware and software-defined platform based on LabVIEW and PXI for researching and prototyping standards such as 5G to expedite its research and demonstrate the viability of high-frequency millimeter wave as an option for 5G radio access technology.

“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,” said Lauri Oksanen, vice president of research and technology at Nokia.
