Nokia and UTS announce 5G Innovation Lab

Nokia has announced a five-year partnership with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) to build and run a state-of-the-art 5G innovation facility at the university’s Tech Lab campus.

The lab will enable Nokia, UTS and their partners to test 5G use cases with real-world applications, including Industry 4.0, IoT and smart cities.

While providing a live 5G testbed for commercial partners, the 5G Innovation Lab will also serve as an environment for research opportunities within the ICT sector.

Researchers and commercial partners will undertake projects to explore the capabilities of 5G and 6G technologies for Industry 4.0 applications such as industrial automation, agriculture and human-robot interactions, as well as IoT capabilities for Internet of Energy applications in smart grid, energy storage and management, and wireless power transfer.

The facility will include a 5G lab and a 5G use case demonstration area, with campus-wide 5G coverage planned to allow for the development and testing of potential 5G use cases in both the lab and the field.

The new lab will also connect directly into the university’s anechoic radio frequency test chamber — said to be the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere — enabling researchers to test the potential of Nokia’s massive MIMO and other antenna technologies.
