Nokia has announced the new ReefShark 5G chipsets, which operators can offer much better mobile networks at much lower costs.
Finnish technology company Nokia announced that it has partnered with the new ReefShark 5G chipsets and 30 operators to create a new generation mobile network. Nokia’s next-generation chipsets are all about operator architecture and do not have a smartphone-related technology. But if we think that the new technology promises operators to offer better quality mobile networks at a lower cost to consumers, we can say that consumers are interested too.
The biggest improvement in the new technology is a 3-fold increase in data output. Moreover, this improvement was achieved with MIMO antennas which consumed as much as half the power of existing equipment and 64% more efficient.
The new ReeffShark chipsets are connected as an additional unit to existing Nokia AirScale baseband modules. When additional units are added to the modules, operators can provide up to 6 Tbps of data using 84 Gbps data output and multiple cells from a single cell.
The installation fully supports network partitioning, which allows virtual network operators to share hardware. The launch of Nokia’s new ReefSharks 5G chipsets will begin in the third quarter of this year.
