Nokia creates first 5GTF connection, uses Intel 5G Mobile Trial Platform

Nokia* has completed the  first 5G connection in Oulu, Finland, using a data center based on Intel® architecture and the Intel® 5G Mobile Trial Platform as the end-user device.

According to Nokia, the Dec. 23, 2016, event marked the world’s first 5G connection made based on the 5GTF interface – the industry-agreed specification for “pre-standard” 5G applications. This specification comes out of the Verizon* 5G Technology Forum (5GTF), formed in late 2015 to address the growing need for a 5G standard. Both Intel and Nokia* are active forum members.

Press Kit: Intel and 5G

5G will transform daily lives and change how we all experience the world – from cars to hospitals to homes. For 5G to become reality, a collaborative ecosystem must be created. Together, Intel and Nokia* are committed to leveraging their end-to-end 5G technology to accelerate the development and adoption of 5G solutions. The collaboration between the two companies exemplifies how the industry is coming together to make 5G a reality.

To read more about 5G and Intel’s roadmap, read “The Era of 5G: The Machines Are Coming,” where Aicha Evans, senior vice president and general manager of the Communications and Devices Group at Intel, writes about how Intel is uniquely positioned to power 5G from the cloud to client.

Intel Announces Support, Intent to Deliver Narrow-Band LTE (NB-LTE) Products in 2016

Intel, Ericsson, Nokia Working Together on Next-Generation Wireless Connectivity for the Internet of Things Market Segment


SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 11, 2015 – Intel Corporation today announced its support for Narrow-Band Long-Term Evolution (NB-LTE) technology as the ideal wireless connectivity solution for the growing Internet of Things (IoT) market segment.


NB-LTE is an optimized variant of the widely deployed 4G LTE technology, and is well-suited for the IoT market segment because of its low implementation cost, ease of use and power efficiency. Intel plans to work closely with Ericsson* and Nokia* to develop and bring to market the products needed for the commercialization of NB-LTE timed with market demand.


Intel intends to support commercial rollout of the technology with a roadmap for NB-LTE chipsets and product upgrades beginning in 2016 that will enable slim form factors. The products will add to Intel's growing LTE portfolio. Nokia and Ericsson will provide the required network upgrades to support an extension of existing LTE networks with NB-LTE optimized for low-power machine-to-machine communication.


"We are excited to collaborate with two leading network vendors, Ericsson and Nokia, on the next wave of wireless innovation to connect the growing IoT market segment, and to further grow the momentum for Intel's LTE portfolio and roadmap with NB-LTE," said Stefan Wolff, vice president, Platform Engineering Group and general manager of the Multi-Comms Business Unit, Intel.


"Cellular networks already cover 90 percent of the world's population so it makes sense to leverage this global footprint to support and drive IoT adoption through the standardization of Narrow-Band LTE. Working with Intel and Nokia, Ericsson is driving the ecosystem to accelerate IoT growth and ensuring a global foundation for a vast range of new IoT applications for consumers, industry and government," said Thomas Norén, vice president and Head of Product Management, Business Unit Radio, Ericsson.


"We believe in building an ecosystem around NB-LTE to speed up the takeup of the Internet of Things. This development will bring consumers benefits, such as enhanced and improved connectivity of devices and at lower cost. This is another extension of Nokia's aim to improve people's lives through a programmable world where billions of people, things, sensors and devices are connected," said Stephan Litjens, vice president, Portfolio Strategy & Analytics, Nokia Networks.
