Nokia and China Mobile will work synergistically to create more opportunities for vertical industries. The two companies have already signed an agreement for the same. Both of them will focus on service offerings for vertical markets using the massive connectivity, ultra-reliability, and ultra-low latency capabilities of 5G. A research team will be working on the project which includes trial use-cases. Nokia 5G Future X network architecture along with NB-IoT and MEC will play a crucial role here.

Together with China Mobile we will leverage 5G to identify the applications that meet future industry needs. At Nokia, we are bringing our Reefchark chipsets, new advanced algorithms from our research teams from Nokia Bell Labs, as well as our Optics, IP and cloud compute technology to boost our end-to-end 5G Future X Network architecture. We are committed to delivering open architecture development to allow operators such as China Mobile to leverage network intelligence. – Marc Rounce, president of Mobile Networks, Nokia.

The joint venture has some challenging goals which includes:

  • How industries can be integrated into the smart city ecosystem to take advantage of the massive new connectivity of people and things.

  • How businesses such as logistics and car rental companies can benefit from the widespread introduction of 5G-connected automated vehicles. Nokia and China Mobile will also expand the existing Car2X trial ecosystem in Wuzhen to advance the use of automated vehicles, as well as technologies that improve vehicle safety.

  • How to further enhance future network architecture security using intelligent network protection techniques.

  • How China Mobile can access and benefit from embedded network intelligence and the Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) architecture to manage and orchestrate services with network resources, and improve service automation and network performance.
