Nokia has announced that it has been selected by ALVIS to deploy a 4G/LTE, 5G-ready network to service over 36 rural areas in Argentina, boosting connectivity for underserved communities and businesses across the country.
It is the first combined deployment of 450 MHz (commercially) and 410 MHz (as a trial) spectrum bands in Latin America, leveraging the combined bands’ long-range to support various Industry 4.0 transformational use cases in agriculture, energy distribution, security and localization services in rural areas.
Nokia is a pioneer in the design and deployment of 400 MHz LTE networks for operators and has recently deployed two similar networks in Europe and the Middle East.
The new network will support numerous upcoming opportunities in Industry 4.0 as well as several innovative projects for agribusiness and utilities, among other verticals being reviewed by ALVIS.
Marcelo Dumanjó, CEO of ALVIS, said: “We are delighted to have chosen Nokia, as it gives us the technological and business support that a deployment of this magnitude deserves.
“The network will allow us to provide Internet service in suburban and rural areas; connecting equipment and fixing installations such as machinery (harvesters, tractors, seeders, trucks), silobags and weather stations, for example.”Click below to share this article
