Get 5G Connectivity from Your Lights

Two of the biggest names from the lighting and cellular networking industries — Osram and Nokia — have teamed up to explore the possibility of equipping LED ceiling luminaires with 5G radio chips to transmit data inside commercial building. In an early-stage development project, Osram said it is providing luminaires and its knowledge of building services, and Nokia Bell Labs is providing networking expertise, to test the lighting infrastructure as a possible means to boost and transmit 5G signals indoors. The wireless transmission would connect to an end user’s wired network to offer complete Internet service. No mobile operators are currently involved in the development, which is centred at Osram and Nokia facilities in Munich, Osram’s home city. The installations have included IP-enabled ‘network slicing’ and ‘IoT micro services’ in the luminaire’s LED driver and light management system.
