Nokia joins Sprint to bring 5G experiences to life

The future with 5G is being brought to life at the new Sprint 5G Experience, which is located at the company’s Overland Park, Kansas headquarters. Sprint has envisioned what is possible with 5G by designing a truly immersive center that includes Nokia innovations and those of other collaborators to explain how 5G works, and most importantly, how it will help change the way we live, work and play.

I was delighted to be a part of the unveiling and to see on full display Nokia’s end-to-end 5G approach and technology innovations through massive MIMO, low latency, mobile edge computing and software.

But, words cannot describe the complete Sprint 5G experience. And, I don’t think photos or videos can either. You have to experience it in person and see the possibilities of 5G first hand, which is at the heart of what the center is all about.

When planning it, Sprint said it was important to build a foundation that enables innovation and would help create immersive experiences for Sprint employees, investors, businesses and guests to see and experience what is possible with 5G.

Some of the questions the Sprint 5G Experience helps to answer are: What is 5G? What is the foundation of 5G? How will more throughput, massive capacity, and low latency bring change to our day-to-day life experience? What about human-machine and machine to machine experiences?

"With faster speeds and lower latency, 5G has the potential to significantly improve our homes, workplaces, cities and lives," said Dr. John Saw, Sprint chief technology officer. "5G will unlock even more technological innovation that’s why being able to showcase what will be possible in the future continues to be an exciting experience for our customers, employees and other visitors."

Nokia is proud to work with Sprint on their vision of 5G. And, we share their excitement to show visitors how business, industry and human experiences can be transformed through Sprint’s 5G network.
