Just in time for the Brooklyn 5G Summit, Nokia says it has developed an advanced 5G simulation and analysis tool to explore potential business and use cases for 5G.
Although 5G standards have yet to be finalized, general agreement exists across the industry about key enabling technologies, the architecture and deployment scenarios, and Nokia figures that’s enough to run with in terms of analyzing the business cases.
In one scenario, Nokia is looking at the opportunity for service providers to offer massive broadband access to homes in areas where conventional fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) is difficult or expensive to deploy.
