Companies Continue Enjoying 5G Benefits as Wipro and Nokia Collaborate




In early 2024, Wipro, a Bengaluru company, and Nokia Corporation confirmed the launch of a private 5G wireless network to support the transformation of industries in the digital sector. In a release, Wipro stated that the solution was to initially support industries operating in transport, sports entertainment, energy and utilities.

5G Benefits that Companies Will Enjoy

In a world characterised by technological advancements that need faster load times, 5G promises faster data speeds than 4G LTE, which enhances user experiences. In the online entertainment industry, for example, gaming companies continue to integrate advanced tech details like HD visuals to make their products more engaging. For example, fans who play Fluffy Favorites Jackpot interact with immersive graphics and visuals that load quicker with faster network speeds like those offered by 5G. The network provides efficiencies of up to 10 gigabits per second, ensuring the gameplay is optimal.

With more efficient spectrum use and advanced antenna technologies like Massive MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output), 5G networks can support more connected devices per unit area. This capacity expansion is vital for accommodating the growing number of IoT (Internet of Things) devices and supporting dense urban environments. The reduced latency of up to approximately one millisecond ensures applications like autonomous vehicles are supported.

How Nokia and Wipro Will Collaborate

Working in collaboration, Nokia was to offer Nokia Digital Automation and Modular Private Wireless solutions. At the same time, Wipro was to incorporate its 5G Def-i with Industry DOT and OTNxt platforms to provide actionable insights on the proper integration of the solution. Clients’ business challenges were to be addressed by an infrastructure designed by Wipro.
Jo Debecker, Wipro’s global head of FullStride Cloud, highlighted that combining Nokia’s network proficiency with Wipro’s strategic tech and connectivity expertise would cause impactful change and value. Similarly, Stephan Litjens, Nokia’s vice president of Enterprise Campus Edge Solutions, expressed his joy in collaborating with Wipro, stating that Wipro had similar aspirations for a 5G network, making it easy for them to work together.

The news about Nokia collaborating with Wipro came a few weeks after Nokia confirmed their plans to invest €360 million (US$391 million) in Germany to establish energy-efficient infrastructures to use in future 5G-Advanced and 6G specs from 3GPP and ITU-R standards. The release of 3GPP was set to bring out the full and rich capabilities of 5G and lay the foundation for more demanding applications.

The project also aimed to improve performance and network optimisation by introducing AI advancements across the core, network, and RAN management layers. With the focus on enhancing microelectronics for nascent technologies like 6G, Nokia expressed hopes that this project would amplify Europe’s competitiveness. Nokia further received support from the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection, research institutes and universities and the German states of Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria.

Overall, the collaboration between Wipro and Nokia underscores the growing importance of 5G technology in driving digital transformation across industries. By combining their strengths, these companies are well-positioned to deliver innovative solutions that harness the full potential of 5G connectivity.
