Nokia creates first 5GTF connection, uses Intel 5G Mobile Trial Platform

Nokia* has completed the  first 5G connection in Oulu, Finland, using a data center based on Intel® architecture and the Intel® 5G Mobile Trial Platform as the end-user device.

According to Nokia, the Dec. 23, 2016, event marked the world’s first 5G connection made based on the 5GTF interface – the industry-agreed specification for “pre-standard” 5G applications. This specification comes out of the Verizon* 5G Technology Forum (5GTF), formed in late 2015 to address the growing need for a 5G standard. Both Intel and Nokia* are active forum members.
