Nokia sets new 5G speed record

The firm now holds the record for the world's fastest 5G speeds, beating the numbers of Ericsson. 

Nokia was able to reach 4.7 gigabit per second (Gbps) of speeds at its Over-the-Air (OTA) network in Dallas, Texas, almost an inch or 0.4 Gbps faster than Ericsson's 4.3 Gbps last February. 

Hitting the speeds, Nokia paired eight 100 megahertz (MHz) channels of millimeter wave spectrum on the 28 GHz and 39GHz bands, providing 800 MHz of bandwidth, with 40 MHz of long term evolution spectrum using the EN-DC functionality available on Nokia’s AirScale solution. 

Nokia claimed 5G network could not only provide "unrivalled mobile broadband speeds", but is also critical in offering latency-sensitive services such as network slicing for mission-critical applications.

This is an important and significant milestone in the development of 5G services in the US, particularly at a time when connectivity and capacity is so crucial, said Nokia’s president of mobile networks Tommi Uitto. 

Uitto was bullish the new record set by Nokia could further boost the confidence of major US carriers to tap the group's expertise.
