Nokia has launched the Nokia Virtual Power Plant (VPP) Controller Software— a unique near-real-time software-based end-to-end platform that helps mobile operators monetize the existing backup batteries at base station sites. Nokia claims to have completed several trials and aims to make the solution available later this year. The solution is the latest example of Nokia’s energy efficiency solution portfolio.
The mobile communication industry is witnessing a surge in demand for highly integrated antennas featuring a multitude of RF ports. However, antenna design faces challenges— particularly the need for integration to support various bands like FDD 4T4R, LTE TDD/5G NR 8T8R, resulting in over 20 ports. Antenna size, a critical factor in network deployment, imposes limitations on the number of connectors in antennas. Cluster connectors, integrating multiple RF ports into a single connector, provide a solution to this challenge.
In early 2024, the resurgence of text-to-video technology, represented by Sora, once again ignited the OpenAI fervor, showcasing the rapid pace of artificial intelligence (AI) development.
