Nokia and StarHub are deploying a cloud-native 5G core network to encourage industry adoption of advanced IoT solutions.
StarHub and Nokia have teamed up to deploy a new cloud-native 5G core network to manage 5G standalone (SA) bandwidth demand that has been projected to grow rapidly.
This achievement comes six months after the companies launched Singapore’s first non-standalone 5G services for consumers and enterprises.
The 5G SA network rollout is well underway and spans core, radio, software, security and professional services with a 5G SA data service launch for StarHub’s customers expected later this year.
This 5G SA upgrade will enable StarHub to run 5G technology independent of existing 4G network technology. With 5G SA technology, StarHub can simultaneously connect a vast number of devices and offer game-changing mobility solutions that thrive on ultra-high speed, low-latency, secure campus networking capabilities for the benefit of consumers, businesses and government agencies in Singapore.
The collaboration will enable StarHub to introduce new digital services and encourage industry adoption of advanced IoT solutions.
Daniel Jaeger, Head of South East Asia Market Unit at Nokia, said: “The Singapore market is highly competitive, with end-users demanding new, innovative 5G services. Leveraging our market-leading 5G solutions, Nokia is proud and committed to continue working with StarHub to bring advance 5G services that will deliver a consistent and enhanced user experience, as well as new revenue opportunities for its enterprise customers.”Click below to share this article
