Nokia Bell Labs and University of Oulu Form Joint Center for Future Connectivity

OULU, Finland--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nokia and the University of Oulu have strengthened their collaboration by establishing a new research and training center focusing on work around wireless infrastructure for 5G and beyond.

The Nokia Bell Labs and University of Oulu Joint Center for Future Connectivity collaboration agreement was signed on 10 February 2017. The center aims to be a world leader in developing future 10X technologies – disruptive ideas with ten times greater impact than the state of the art today – for the new digital era, where networks will have seemingly infinite capacity, much greater energy efficiency, heightened application awareness and built-in self-optimization.

Our living environment within the next 20 years will be smart, sensing and interactive, requiring very low latency, high-speed broadband connectivity and trustworthy machine-type communications given the billions of devices that will be online and connected with each other. Virtual and augmented reality applications will form the basis for future interactions in seamless connectivity with an abundance of networked devices. In the beginning, the center’s research themes will focus on developing new radio technologies for 5G and early demonstrations of 5G’s possibilities. A new spearhead project has started under this agreement focusing on 5G RFIC design, 5G test network and system development activities.
