October 5, 2020
has signed 17 new 5G commercial
deals since Q2 earnings
announcement. With these wins, the
company now has 100 commercial 5G
deals with individual customers and
a total of 160 commercial 5G
engagements, including paid trials.
In April, it introduced the industry’s first Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) solution that supports spectrum sharing between 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G.
In July, the company announced it can migrate five million legacy 4G radio units to 5G via a software upgrade, making it easier for operators to move to 5G.
Nokia made its 5G standalone (SA) private wireless technology commercially available in July – the first network equipment provider to do so.
In August, Nokia contributed to the world’s first large-scale 5G SA launch with T-Mobile in the US.
Tommi Uitto, President of Mobile Networks, Nokia, said: “We are thrilled to have passed this 5G milestone. We know we still have work to do and that the market remains highly competitive. But, we are moving fast – and these wins make it clear that our progress is being validated by customers. We deeply appreciate their ongoing support and are committed to delivering for them.”
