Nokia supports T-Mobile 5G evolution with five-year expansion deal

  • T-Mobile extends a longstanding partnership with #nokia to expand its nationwide #5g network
  • Nokia's Airscale Massive MIMO to light up T-Mobile's (2.5GHz mid-band) Ultra Capacity 5G
  • Un-carrier customers to experience increased #5g speeds by combining the extended range (low-band) #5g with the additional Ultra Capacity #5g (2.5GHz mid-band)

Espoo, Finland – #nokia today announced a continuation of its long standing T-Mobile partnership with a five-year deal. T-Mobile will utilize Nokia's AirScale Radio platform to deploy an Ultra Capacity #5g layer with 2.5GHz Massive MIMO technology, shifting the Un-carrier customer experience into overdrive. Under the new agreement, #nokia will continue to expand T-Mobile's extended range (low-band) #5g coverage. Both the extended range and Ultra Capacity enhancements will augment user experience and network capacity by leveraging T-Mobile's multi-layer spectrum strategy.

To support the Un-carrier's supercharged #5g network, #nokia will supply its market-leading AirScale radio access solutions – including macro and small cells across low, mid-band and mmWave spectrum. Massive MIMO, a key #5g technology, will allow T-Mobile's 2.5GHz mid-band spectrum to be utilized to its full potential.  Massive MIMO will boost network performance to its customers in the form of higher speeds and lower latency, further assisting T-Mobile's home internet strategy. All of these enhanced user experiences are built upon T-Mobile's nationwide #5g standalone network. As part of the deal, #nokia will also enable T-Mobile to upgrade its mid-band LTE network to #5g and continue to expand their extended range (low-band) #5g network.

Neville Ray, President of Technology, T-Mobile, said: "From the moment Sprint became part of T-Mobile, we've been rapidly combining networks for a supercharged Un-carrier experience while continuing to aggressively expand our nationwide #5g footprint. We have already taken a massive step forward with nationwide standalone #5g earlier this year, and this agreement with #nokia will help us to deliver incredible innovation and opportunity in this country."

Pekka Lundmark, President and CEO of Nokia, commented: "Nokia has a long-standing and collaborative partnership with T-Mobile and our industry-leading #5g RAN solutions will underpin the new T-Mobile network. The expanded and upgraded #5g network that leverages all spectrum bands will deliver exciting new solutions to even more people and businesses, and our technology will play a fundamental role in delivering these compelling connectivity experiences for work and play."
