Network Slicing might not be familiar to many users. Let’s try to explain it before we move on to the news. This means allocating parts of system capabilities to create a better experience for different types of users.

What is Network Slicing?

For example, mobile operators will be able to offer separate portions of their network for mobile gamers. This is often needed when higher speed or lower latency is required. Another example is offering more bandwidth to more crowded spaces.

Another example of network slicing use is sports events. Users will be able to use a 5G slice to get fast access to video replays and additional content. For example, info about their favorite teams. Such service will also be enabled through the 4G and 5G antennas serving users at the concert arenas.

When will this new tech be available?

Such a problem is well-known to many who have at least once tried to attend a crowded event. A good example is MWC in Barcelona where it is often impossible to establish even a poor connection. 5G networks were built to avoid such mess during crowded events, but even three years later, we see no progress. So, we hope that the Nokia Network slicing could finally solve this problem.

As NokiaMob reports, Nokia will soon announce this new tech in its infrastructure. The most important thing is that it will be compatible with Android 14.

Network slicing

Nokia Networks is the first mobile infrastructure that will provide such a service to Android users, through their carriers.

Of course, there’s much more work to be done. Many things depend on Google, though, which needs to integrate Network slicing technology into the next generation of Android. Android 14 is coming in a few months.

At the start, this new tech will be offered through the infrastructure built by Nokia. On the other hand, we hope it will also be licensed to other infrastructure producers, such as Ericsson and Huawei.

This technology will be available both for 4G and 5G networks. Nokia says it will be offered to existing and future carriers. End users will be able to buy slicing on-demand services, according to their needs.
