Nokia and Telia Finland, have announced the launch of the world’s first commercial 5G standalone (SA) network with network slicing for Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) services.
Telia is introducing 5G SA to its 5G Fixed Wireless Access home broadband services and is able to start offering a range of broadband deals with guaranteed service levels to its customers in Finland. These solutions will enable Telia to build on its existing leadership position and deliver enhanced connectivity and capacity benefits to its customers. The deployment is underway.
The deal will see Nokia upgrade Telia’s entire 5G Radio Access Network infrastructure to enable 5G slicing utilising equipment from its comprehensive AirScale portfolio including 5G radio and baseband products.
Nokia’s industry-leading, energy-efficient 5G AirScale network portfolio delivers best-in-class connectivity and supports mobile operators rapidly transitioning to 5G standalone networks. 5G SA is the foundation for some of the most transformative 5G use cases such as cloud gaming and extended reality.
Nokia 5G SA Core gives Telia the speed, intelligence, scale and security to deliver 5G services while cost-effectively managing its network with near zero-touch automation and adherence to Service Level Agreements.
The introduction of network slicing will mean that Telia can dynamically allocate a portion of the network for 5G FWA, flexibly balance traffic between FWA and mobile users and provide new services like application category-based slicing.Click below to share this article
