New Delhi – Nokia has joined hands with Indian telecom giant Bharti Airtel in a bid to create a strategic roadmap for network evolution to the 5G technology standard and Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled devices.
Airtel says that Nokia will enable the company to bring 5G and Internet of Things technology to the masses in India and through these they will be able to transform lives of people. 5G comes with promise of dramatically improving peak data speeds, network latency and agility, as well as the ability to enable new capabilities such as network slicing. These and many more such capabilities allow operators to support a growing number of customers and potentially billions of connected IoT devices with consistent quality of service.
5G will also lay the foundation for smarter cities and rural communities, connected vehicles, industrial automation, remote healthcare and a myriad of business possibilities.
Nokia has been associated with Airtel for all its mobile implementations ranging from 2G, to 4G and with 5G in tow, the two will continue to bring more innovation to India and the world.
Nokia says that it will be building up on the strengths and experience it has garnered from across the globe in 5G-related industry projects and collaborations and will enable Airtel to prepare their networks for greater capacity, coverage and speed in India.
