Nokia furthers SoftBank Corp.’s plan to complete 5G connected car test

Nokia appears to go full throttle as the Finnish company is offering state-of-the-art equipment from its end-to-end 5G portfolio to SoftBank Corp. to substantiate that non-standalone 5G technology can be commercially used to operate connected cars. Nokia claimed that the trial has made them first in the world to have successfully completed the tests.

Reportedly, the test has excelled in successfully conducting the world’s first trial—a first step in using 3GPP Release 15 compliant of Nokia— with the help of commercial-level 256QAM high-order modulation and 4*4 MIMO radio equipment network equipment.

SoftBank Corp. tested four use cases such as the transmission of location information pertaining to surrounding vehicles at intersections for the notification and identification processes for falling objects on the road, the secondary use and transmission of high-quality 4K video and images captured from the in-vehicle cameras.

Nokia is of the opinion that 5G will become the linchpin in delivering the capacity and speed needed to ensure vehicles can interact and communicate aptly and safely on road networks. The company believes that deployment of low-latency 5G networks and high-bandwidth is indispensable for providing the upsides of the next-gen of road vehicles which are either fully autonomous or connected.

Head of Nokia Japan John Harrington was quoted saying that these trials are testimony to the fact that 5G technology can be safely, successfully and aptly utilized in the connected car industry. He stressed that Nokia would augment its work on research in the 5G landscape and bring forth 5G connected mobility solutions to the roads.
