Phillipines and Malaysia latest to partner with Nokia
Nokia is helping Phillipines telecommunications provider, DITO to deliver 5G services to its customers with superior speeds, capacity, and lower latencies while reducing complexity and driving down costs through increased energy efficiencies.
To achieve the desired network performance, Nokia is providing equipment from its comprehensive massive MIMO, multi-band, Single RAN AirScale portfolio to build the Radio Access Network (RAN) for the 5G infrastructure across Mindanao, the Philippines’ second largest island.
DITO also utilised Nokia’s NetAct solution for network management and seamless daily network operations, including configuration management, monitoring, and software management.
Nokia provided digital design and deployment for a faster time to market as well as optimization and technical support services.
Allo, an Information and Communications Technology service provider in Malaysia also chose Nokia to deploy a gigabit fiber network in the states of Melaka, Johor, Negeri Sembilan and East Coast of Malaysia.
The deployment, includes Nokia’s Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) solution and Access Management System, will be completed by end of Q2 2021 covering nearly 150,000 homepasses. When completed, the end-users will be able to enjoy a high-speed broadband network and applications that require high capacity. The future-ready fiber network will enable Allo to increase its revenue as it will be able to support new use cases like smart cities, smart poles, edge automation, 5G backhaul, and enterprise services.
Nokia’s solution will enable Allo to better manage bandwidth in line with the requirement for different services.
The fibre network will support the convergence of more services and users on the same infrastructure, allowing Allo to bring down OpEx and enhance revenue.
With the new network, Allo will be able to acquire relevant insights into network utilization as the network grows and new technology enablers are added. Nokia’s solution will also help Allo benefit from network simplification and easier management of the network.
Nokia has been an existing 4G LTE radio partner since 2020. DITO, a joint venture between Udenna Group and China Telecom, is the newest telecommunications provider in the Philippines and is pursuing a strategy of creating a new network in the country.
