Nokia has has brought the capacity and speed of its 5G private wireless network to KymiRing in Finland, which it says will enable unprecedented broadcast techniques for motorsport in Europe.
The partnership with KymiRing, which is the largest motorsports and events venue in Northern Europe, will implement industrial-grade private wireless technology on the site.
The 5G network will enable broadcasters to use reliable, secure, high-bandwidth connectivity as well as transforming the testing performance for racing teams and boosting the viewing experience for spectators.
The network is expected to be completed during 2021.
“With this network investment we will have the capacity to broadcast a live stream of numerous racers at the same time. Nothing on the track will remain beyond coverage and everything can be monitored and controlled in real time,” said Markku Pietilä, CEO, KymiRing.
“Big events generally require an enormous stake from production companies, who arrive with truckloads of cables and support technology. Thanks to our network improvements, the infrastructure is completed significantly faster as most of the technology is available on site,” added Pietilä.
