Nokia is already the exclusive supplier of 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) and said it will support the modernization of the shared network, TTN, to deliver enhanced connectivity experiences.
Under the deal, Nokia will supply its ReefShark System on Chip (SoC) based AirScale 5G RAN portfolio including 5G Massive MIMO antennas to enable ultra-fast, low-latency mobile broadband services for TTN’s consumers and enterprise customers.
The modernization deal will focus initially on Denmark’s four largest cities before expanding to cover most Danish customers during 2022.
TTN is Denmark’s largest mobile network with more than 4,300 sites and the network merger dates back to 2012. As of now, both Telenor and Telia own 50% of the network.
“With the modernization of the network, we are making a significant investment in and upgrade of the vital Danish telecoms infrastructure. A strong network is a foundation for our continued work to support the digitalization of Denmark, the development of our economy, innovation, and sustainable solutions for the future,” said Thomas Kjærsgaard, CEO of Telia Denmark.
“With our nationwide network rollout, Danes will experience higher speeds and better coverage in both urban and peri-urban areas. Specifically, the 5G upgrades will mean twice the speeds in densely populated areas and significant improvements across the country,” added Lars Thomsen, CEO of Telenor Denmark.
“I look forward to continuing to work closely with Telenor and Telia and support their ambition to promote digitalization in Danish society and deliver new exciting solutions to its consumer, enterprise, and Industry 4.0 customers,” said Tommi Uitto, President of Mobile Networks at Nokia.
