Rastin Pries, Research Engineer at Nokia talks us through how to solve the one of the biggest challenges for operators: handling data at large scale events. He demonstrates network slicing to enable a public safety network in Nokia's 5G Connected Stadium.
Ordnance Survey's 3D Mapping
5G signals will be much more affected by objects they meet in the environment such as buildings and trees. For network planners it's important to have an accurate model of the 3D world to decide where to place antennas. Richard Crump, Managing Director at Ordnance Survey demonstrates their 3D model of Bournemouth and how it can be used to show how signal coverage will be affected.
