Nokia – Ten Key Rules of 5G Deployment

Ten key rules of 5G deployment

Enabling 1 Tbit/s/km2 in 2030

By 2030 there is likely to be as much as 10,000 times more wireless data traffic criss-crossing networks than there was in 2010, according to Nokia estimates. The growth will be driven by the use of ultra-high resolution video streaming, the ubiquity of cloud-based applications, entertainment and greater use of high resolution screens at form factors we may not even guess at today. As well as more of the same, we will see new use cases, applications and devices stemming from the powerful trend of the Internet of Things, which will lead to what we call the programmable world. In addition, 5G will provide at least a ten-fold improvement in the user experience compared to 4G in terms of peak data rates and minimal latency. Nokia envisions 5G as being a system that provides a scalable and flexible service experience with virtually zero latency, involving gigabits of data when and where it matters.

This white paper outlines the deployment options for 5G to provide the required capacity and end user data rates that will be needed and makes ten key recommendations for 5G deployments.
