By BBN Staff: Nokia has been awarded over US$14 million from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to put a 4G LTE network on the moon, reports CNN.
The award forms a part of a larger US$370 million project awarded to several companies to deploy technology to the moon in the pursuit of a 2028 goal to build a base on the moon and eventually sustain a human presence there.
Nokia’s (NOK) Bell Labs, which will be heading up the project, said that astronauts will be using its wireless network for a number of tasks including data transmission, controlling lunar rovers, and streaming high-definition video from the moon.
CNN’s article noted that Bell Labs helped to create small cell technology that’s more limited in range but uses significantly less power than traditional cell towers and will require less effort to load onto a rocketship
NASA also plans to eventually upgrade the 4G network on the moon to a 5G network.
