the technology companies Qualcomm, Nokia and the juganu announced today, January 12th, a collaboration to standardize the 5G spectrum for smart cities and use cases in public IoT services in Brazil, with the support of Brazilian government agencies Agência Brasileira de Desenvolvimento Industrial (ABDI) and Agência Nacional de Telecomunicações (National Telecommunications Agency) (Anatel).
Understanding 5G in mmWave
Before moving on to the news, it is important to explain what the mmWave. At millimeter waves (where the “mm” comes from) allow the 5G connection operate at the best possible quality, delivering greater speed and supporting a greater number of connected devices (which avoids network overload). Despite the “millimeter” in the name, the frequencies of mmWave are between 24 GHz and 60 GHz. And another known thing about the 5G is that it needs a lot of antennas to maintain its signal. At this point where the juganu. One of the tactics to fill cities is to antennas is to “camouflage” them in lampposts, fake trees and whatever else is part of the urban scene.
Collaboration for 5G delivery
According to José Palazzi, senior sales director at Qualcomm, the collaboration aims to support the standardization of 5G spectrum usage on mmWave and other frequencies for smart cities and IoT services. “We are very proud to support this initiative in Brazil, demonstrating how Qualcomm Technologies’ 5G solutions on mmWave and other frequencies in this spectrum can have a positive impact on smart cities and communities, integrating IoT developments and transforming societies through technology. ”
The initiative has Nokia bringing its 5G cellular core and Juganu its smart street lamp and integrated for use in existing public areas, providing public services through the integration of 5G technology and IoT solutions from Qualcomm. With the project, the Qualcomm, Nokia and Juganu demonstrate that the use of street lighting devices dramatically simplifies installation and technology fusion, while significantly reducing the cost and time to implement the solution.
For Bruno Gemus, CEO of juganu in Brazil, this is a project to be applied throughout the country. “This project has the power to change the scenario of public street lighting in Brazil and in the world. We have created an innovative public lighting experience, generating 5G connectivity for the municipality, which will be able to use this network for various applications and thus reduce the need to install many antennas across the city.” As mentioned in the second paragraph, the installation of 5G antennas can be integrated into the urban setting, whether on a lamp post or a tree.
