The 5G private wireless network will allow NAIST to strengthen its research capabilities, enable high-definition live streaming of lectures and research videos and contribute to research on next-generation mobile communication systems.

The local 5G network will enable NAIST to collect data in real-time and use Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to generate insights. Local 5G networks will allow high-definition live streaming to enable NAIST to provide a more immersive education experience.

It will also improve rainfall prediction accuracy by using 5G and GPS positioning functions.

“Nokia Digital Automation Cloud will allow NAIST to benefit from a local 5G network to better manage its data assets and provide a superior learning experience. In addition, our FastMile 5G Gateway allows NS Solutions to offer high-speed, reliable wireless connectivity for the local 5G network at NAIST,” Donny Janssens, Head of Customer Team Enterprise Japan, at Nokia, said.
