Nokia Paving The Way To 5G

Finnish communications company Nokia Networks has been leading the way in testing out 5G technologies. The provider is partnering with telecom providers such as Verizon and T-Mobile for these early, pre-standard field tests.

At Mobile World Congress, Nokia CEO Rajeev Suri said that the company not only plans to invest in 5G technology in 2016 but that 5G-ready equipment could be ready for sale as early as 2017, far ahead of any industry standards around 5G. Suri also said he believed initial 5G deployments will be seen ahead of the theoretical 2020 timeline for volume 5G deployments.

"5G will happen faster than expected. This may surprise some of you," Suri said ahead of Mobile World Congress.
