Industry giant supports New Zealand 5G deployment
Nokia is collaborating with telecommunications provider Spark on the provision of 5G coverage in New Zealand.
Nokia will be using products from its AirScale radio portfolio, which – again according to the company – “have the potential to help deliver up to ten times faster data speeds, while consuming much less energy than earlier generations of network equipment.”
Discussing the project, Spark general manager of value management, Rajesh Singh, said: “We’re immensely excited to provide the foundation that we believe will support Kiwi businesses across a range of industries.
“We’re also pleased to be upgrading parts of our 4G network to support the unprecedented increase in demand for data we are seeing each year. We look forward to continuing to work collaboratively with our partner Nokia on this exciting next phase of our 5G rollout.”
Nokia has already worked with Spark on several projects, including delivery of 5G RAN, IP, core, and optical transport.
