Nokia has launched 5G services with mobile operator Optus at the Optus Stadium in Perth, Australia.
The move provides visitors attending sporting or music events with access to fast indoor and outdoor 5G coverage with speeds over 1Gbps.
Nokia has supported Optus with the deployment of the technology as well as its ambitious goals for 5G.
Optus is utilizing Nokia’s 5G AirScale indoor Radio solution (ASiR) to provide comprehensive coverage for indoor zones such as corporate boxes or VIP areas. The solution supports major network technologies and is designed to be easy to upgrade from 4G to 5G new radio (NR). It includes indoor small cells that deliver a consistent 5G user experience with high data rates across multiple zones.
Kelly Bayer Rosmarin, CEO, Optus Network Australia, Optus Singtel Pty. Ltd, said: “5G will be transformative in the home, at work and when we are at play, like cheering on your team or singing along to your favorite artist. We know people have been eager to get back into Optus Stadium with a full crowd and with Optus 5G now enabled throughout the stadium, fans will be able to connect at the speed of their excitement.”Click below to share this article
