A deal with Nokia will allow the Finnish operator Telia to boost its broadband offering by providing Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) using a dedicated slice of its 5G network.
The deal will see Nokia upgrade Telia’s entire 5G Radio Access Network infrastructure to enable 5G slicing utilising equipment from its AirScale portfolio including 5G radio and baseband products.
The introduction of network slicing will mean that Telia can dynamically allocate a portion of the network for 5G FWA, flexibly balance traffic between FWA and mobile users, and provide new services like application category-based slicing.
Telia will be able to offer its customers a selection of broadband deals with guaranteed service levels based on customer requirements. Telia is also utilizing Nokia’s Carrier Aggregation technology for making the best use of its 5G spectrum assets to improve coverage in key regions.
