NASA has decided to allow Nokia to install a 4G network on the moon.
Under the terms of the agreement, NASA has awarded Nokia $ 14.1 million to implement the project, which is part of a $ 370 million contract signed with various companies under NASA’s Tipping Point Selection.
Nokia is set to launch a 4G LTE network and upgrade to 5G speeds. That is essential.
Bell Labs, Nokia’s research arm, said in a Twitter post that the network aims to support lunar rovers and navigation, as well as video streaming operations via wireless technology.
This is not the first time Nokia has attempted to build a 4G network on the moon, and in 2018, German space company PTSceintits and Vodafone in the UK have planned to build a similar LTE network around the Apollo 17 landing area. Did not.
