Nokia has completed the first 5G connection in Oulu, Finland, using a data center based on Intel architecture and the Intel 5G Mobile Trial Platform as the end-user device.

According to Nokia, the Dec. 23, 2016 event marked the world's first 5G connection made based on the 5GTF interface, the industry-agreed specification for "pre-standard" 5G applications. This specification comes out of the Verizon 5G Technology Forum (5GTF), formed in late 2015 to address the growing need for a 5G standard. Both Intel and Nokia are active forum members.

5G will transform daily lives and change how we all experience the world, from cars to hospitals to homes. For 5G to become reality, a collaborative ecosystem must be created. Together, Intel and Nokia are committed to leveraging their end-to-end 5G technology to accelerate the development and adoption of 5G solutions. The collaboration between the two companies exemplifies how the industry is coming together to make 5G a reality.
