Telenor introduces 5G
Telenor Pakistan is successful in getting 5G platform by Nokia cloud RAN solution and controllers. Telenor has achieved its goal to transform Pakistan digitally. It has optimized the end customer experience. So, we can say that it has improved the total cost of ownership. It has quickly responded to opportunities that we can see getting big.
This means that it is technically the first time we will be having AirScale Base Station Controller (BSC) and AirScale Radio Network Controller (RNC) on AirFrame cloud infrastructure in Pakistan, and the first cloud-based BSC deployment in the Middle East and Africa region.
Telenor Pakistan is using Pakistan first 5G-ready cloud-based RAN platform and controllers. This was not possible without Nokia.
The Nokia solution decreases network problems and total cost for operation, this way it is allowing service providers to give us innovative services with low cost. Other benefit is that this will prepare the users to use 5G more efficiently.
Khurrum Ashfaque, Chief Technology Officer, Telenor Pakistan, said
“Telenor Pakistan has always been a frontrunner in the growth of technology and innovation. With a global purpose of connecting people to what matters most, we continue to empower Pakistani society with our innovative digital initiatives. Together with Nokia’s cloud solutions, we are well on our way to accelerating digital transformation. We will have added flexibility to scale the radio network resources based on demand as well as greater agility, which is critical as a significant percentage of our subscribers continue to use 2G and 3G services. With this deployment, we will be able to introduce new services and solutions faster, and quickly take advantage of emerging business opportunities.”
