MWC 2015: Nokia Networks to power Internet of Things with 5G connectivity and network security.

Demonstrates future 5G technologies for applications that depend on massive network capacity or critical latency levels such as tactile internet and connected cars 

 Showcases LTE for machine-to-machine communications (LTE-M) for automotive, wearables and smart grid connectivity in a joint demonstration with Korea Telecom

 Extends its Mobile Guard malware detection solution to protect complex IoT applications 

Espoo, Finland – 19 February 2015

Nokia Networks is showing the possibilities of mobile connectivity for the Internet of Things (IoT) at Mobile World Congress 2015. The live demonstrations include 5G* radio equipment on new millimeter and centimeter wave bands for utmost capacity as well as new frame structures to achieve single-digit millisecond latency. This allows for the immediate, synchronous eye-hand feedback that enables remote control over robots working in construction and maintenance. Visitors can also see LTE optimized for the specific needs of sensor and machine networks**. 

With IoT, critical new security capabilities will be needed at the device and network levels. The company has proven experience in delivering highly secure networks and is launching its extended Mobile Guard solution*** for state-of-the-art security control to address complex IoT applications including Smart City, eHealth, and Smart Grid.

The transition to IoT means we will soon live in a world with between 10 and 100 times more Internet-connected devices than there are connected humans. Real time IoT will require even more reliable communication links, lower transmission delays (latencies) and extreme throughput to serve the data transmitted by hundreds of billions of sensors and machines. Nokia Networks has already been providing IoT-ready radio and core networks that meet today’s needs for machine-type connectivity. These networks support minimal latency and include powerful capabilities for handling massive amounts of signaling and transaction traffic as well as for efficient management of machine data. 

Security is fundamental and inseparable from the safe and reliable operation of IoT-connected devices. IoT has the potential to bring together every aspect of different networks, which means cloud-based and physical security must work together to produce robust, actionable security intelligence in real time. Nokia Networks provides a comprehensive range of these security solutions to meet the needs of both environments.

Kathrin Buvac, Vice President, Strategy at Nokia Networks, said: “The Internet of Things, a driver for what we call the Programmable World, opens tremendous potential to expand the human possibilities of technology. Within the next ten years, we will see 50 billion things connected, enabling industries to become more efficient and helping people to improve their daily lives. At Nokia Networks, we are already demonstrating key technologies like 5G that will make mobile networks the natural choice for bringing these possibilities to reality."

Highlights at Mobile World Congress:
Demonstrations at the Nokia Experience Center, Hall 3, Stand 3B10:

 Prototype 5G mm and cm wave radio systems that use advanced antennas and operate in the 3.5 – 70 GHz bands for extreme throughput and ultra low latency

 Extended Nokia Mobile Guard to detect malware or abnormal IoT device behavior via device profiling. When an IoT device is hacked and its processor or Internet connection is used for fraud and other attacks, Mobile Guard recognizes these devices and takes actions for mitigation.

Joint demonstration with Korea Telecom at Innovation City, Hall 3:

 LTE-M prototype to connect an extreme number of wearables, cars and smart grid elements ensuring a battery life of more than 10 years and providing four times more coverage than conventional LTE. This pre-5G technology enables cost-efficient connection of massive numbers of sensors, even in remote or low-coverage locations.

Seong-Mok Oh, Head of Network Group, Senior Vice President at Korea Telecom, said: “Internet of Things will be the next big thing in the future of mobile business and we are truly delighted to collaborate with Nokia on advancing IoT solutions for mobile networks. Korea Telecom is working to embrace the huge opportunity that IoT service will bring to the industry. I hope that the strategic partnership with Nokia, including the joint demonstration at MWC 2015, will lay a foundation for the two companies’ leadership position along the journey towards an IoT world.”
