China Mobile Trials Nokia's HetNet, Mobile Edge Computing Capabilities

SHANGHAI -- Nokia, China Mobile Group Shanghai Co., Ltd and China Mobile Communication Co., Ltd Research Institute, have delivered an immersive ultra-low latency, high-capacity and flawless mobile video experience to the spectators at a major motor race in Shanghai using Nokia technology, which combines Mobile Edge Computing with a ultra-dense heterogeneous network (HetNet) infrastructure.

High-traffic events present huge challenges to mobile operators as tens of thousands of people connect simultaneously to the network to access social media sites, watch videos and share their experiences. For this event, Nokia deployed its zone applications using a Mobile Edge Computing-enabled LTE network. China Mobile used Nokia's leading Flexi Zone small cells and cloud-based AirScale Wi-Fi to deliver the speeds and latency required to meet all subscribers' demands with superior quality.

Using Edge Video Orchestration over the Mobile Edge Computing platforms, spectators could access a selection of live video feeds on their mobile devices with close to zero latency. Video feeds from different angles of the race - including from a driver's cockpit - gave spectators the unique opportunity to tailor their view and become immersed in the race in real-time.
