China Mobile in association with Nokia has delivered an immersive ultra-low latency, high-capacity and flawless mobile video experience to the spectators at a major motor race in Shanghai.

Nokia has deployed its zone applications using a Mobile Edge Computing-enabled LTE network, while China Mobile used Nokia’s 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.

Edge Video Orchestration over the Mobile Edge Computing platforms allows spectators to access live video feeds on their mobile devices with close to zero latency. Video feeds from different angles of the race – including from a driver’s cockpit – gave spectators the opportunity to tailor their view and become immersed in the race in real-time.

Nokia’s zone applications combines Mobile Edge Computing with high-capacity small cell based networks to allow operators to lower the costs of supporting mass events while offering a unique, tailored and outstanding quality mobile data experience.

Nokia’s Flexi Zone Controller reduced the complexity of the dense small cell network to control interference, manage mobility and reduce signalling load on the core network.

Nokia AirScale Wi-Fi combines gigabit wireless performance and deployment simplicity to allow mobile operators to seamlessly integrate Wi-Fi with their existing networks and dramatically improve the customer experience.

Nokia Services for HetNets allows operators to deliver the best performance from their dense macro and small cell networks.
