Nokia, Sprint to run live demonstration of 5G New Radio connection

Nokia Corp. and Sprint Corp. will run a live demonstration of a 5G New Radio connection over a dual mode-capable Massive MIMO radio in the U.S.

The companies will use Sprint's 2.5 GHz spectrum, Nokia's commercial AirScale Base Station and Massive MIMO Active Antenna, and a VIAVI TM500 5G test device emulator, according to a Sept. 10 news release.

The Nokia AirScale Massive MIMO Active Antenna is expected to deliver up to 3 Gbps peak downlink throughput for a single sector over 5G and LTE simultaneously using Sprint's spectrum. This enables Sprint to offer both 4G LTE and 5G on the same radio.

The U.S. carrier plans to deploy mobile 5G in the first half of 2019.
