The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and Nokia 5G Futures lab are launching a new 5G testing and demonstration facility on the UTS campus, near the existing UTS Tech Lab.

The center will feature a state-of-the-art radio frequency lab, a 5G showcase demonstration area, and a connection to the university’s Anechoic Chamber, Australia’s largest near-field anechoic radio frequency test chamber.

The 5G lab will enable Nokia, UTS and other partners to push the boundaries of 5G technology and develop new 5G use cases with real-world applications. The lab will also help attract new research opportunities within the ICT sector.

“UTS Tech Lab is a unique facility that supports collaboration with industry on research and development projects, such as this partnership with Nokia, which will drive innovation and growth in 5G and 6G network infrastructure,”  said Associate Professor Ray Kirby, director of UTS Tech Lab. “Our cutting-edge equipment and world-class research talent, combined with Nokia’s commitment to innovation and technology leadership, creates a strong partnership to facilitate the development of new applications to unlock the huge potential of 5G and 6G.”

This multi-year, multi-million-dollar investment reflects Nokia’s commitment to Australian innovation and the essential role telecommunication plays in both securing critical infrastructure and fostering economic growth.

Researchers and commercial partners will undertake projects to explore the capabilities of 5G/6G technologies for Industry 4.0 applications such as industrial automation, agriculture and human-robot interactions, as well as Internet of Things capabilities for Internet of Energy applications in smart grid, energy storage and management and wireless power transfer.

“This partnership builds upon the already great facilities at UTS Tech Lab and will enable Nokia, UTS and their partners to develop, test and demonstrate the full power of 5G here in Australia,” said Dr Robert Joyce, CTO at Nokia Oceania.
