A large number of countries around the globe are preparing to welcome 5G technology. Nokia Oyj (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) has decided to demonstrate how 4.9G technology will help reduce network latency. This demonstration is set to take place at the Mobile World Congress Shanghai.

Using 4.9G technology, the industry leader will lower network latency to less than two milliseconds. Technological advancements seem to be hitting the world with great impact. Nokia’s evolution of 4G/LTE, according to some top experts is a promise of some faster network response times in support of applications such as the autonomous cars and ‘Industry 4.0’ automation. The company will also seek to give a clear demonstration that indeed operators can complement initial 5G deployments by taking advantage of the high-performance LTE technology.

The different operators around the globe are set to reap much with the new technological advancements sweeping across the globe. As a matter of fact, Nokia’s 4.9G technology will play a major role in moving the performance of LTE networks closer to the 5G experience. Operators will be able to support the higher-bandwidth applications as the world prepares to welcome the 5G technological era. Experts are promising a smooth transition upon the deployment of the 5G network.

According to, the Associate Director at IDC Asia Pacific while recently speaking to a number of top journalists said, “With the move from 3G to LTE networks, shortened latency times were crucial for an improved mobile broadband user experience. With this demonstration, Nokia has set a new benchmark for LTE network latency performance, bringing it closer to the 5G levels needed for industry and enterprise applications.”

The different operators are expected to start showing support for new applications and also move ahead to deliver service continuity by the moment the 5G network is unveiled. It goes without saying that Nokia has succeeded immensely in terms of setting up a critical path for operators. They have been empowered in such a way that they can now take advantage of major increases in speed and capacity where and when they need it using 4.5G, 4.5G Pro and 4.9G technologies.
