Claro leads the way in standalone 5G technology

“5G will change the rules of the game” is one of those phrases that has resonated in recent years with the deployment of a new generation of mobile networks. Today, as people begin to realize the benefits it will bring, such as higher browsing speeds, lower latency, and increased connected devices, the industry is preparing for a new development: standalone networks, which allow complex industrial environments to be integrated into a single network. promises to take New levels of productivity and efficiency.

As with previous mobile generations, where there were different efficiencies and phases, something similar happens with 5G: while the first phase of deployment considers the use of existing 4G network cores, one with dedicated cores for standalone 5G. Takes a new step, shared the independent 4G of 5G non stand alone. The foregoing test allows features such as network slicing (the ability to segment networks according to the business model), ultra-low latency and connection speeds of over 1 Gbps, ideal for setting up private networks. To test its scope, Nokia will implement the first network of its kind with the Claro Lab-UC 5G Innovation Center in Chile, which will be operational during the second half of this year.

5G Standalone and the Advancement of Technology

Nokia confirms that 5G Standalone (SA) is the next evolutionary step in our 5G technology. “With Standalone we expand the true potential of 5G beyond high speeds: building the potential for innovation. With the cloud-based model, network slicing is made possible, giving us the ability to optimize and segment networks at an unprecedented level, adapting to 5G, according to the specific needs of use cases and the preferences of our customers. Making possible the number of millions of devices per square kilometer and enabling a realistic approach to Industry 4.0. We are proud to contribute from our global experience and make this initiative a reality with Claro Chile and the Catholic University of Chile”, emphasizes Rubén Morón, Country Director at Nokia.

Meanwhile, from the UC Innovation Center they point out that the focus of implementing this technology in the lab is to do small-scale proof-of-concept and testing to reduce the risk of 5G standalone initiatives.

“We want to pilot solutions in complex environments to see the real scope that key productive areas for our country will stand alone in,” says Francisco Pizarro, deputy director of R&D with industry at the UC Anacleto Angelini Innovation Center.

“We are extremely pleased with this collaboration with Nokia, which has since launched the Claro Lab-UC 5G Innovation Center, which has supported us with the connectivity we need to develop industrially scalable projects. With Standalone, Industries will be able to incorporate dedicated wireless networks, in addition to providing key features with low latency, such as can occur with remote surgery in the health sector, which requires the time when instruction is sent. until it is executed. Actions are practically instantaneous or in the mining world, where they require ultra-reliable networks that can cover large underground and open-air areas”, Claro of Technology in Chile Director Patricio Olivares says.
