Nokia announced a 7-year 5G network deal with GO Malta as its sole partner for a nationwide 5G RAN rollout.
Nokia in a news statement said it will consolidate its existing infrastructure and expand and accelerate the deployment of 5G services in Malta with the delivery of equipment from its latest ReefShark System on Chip-powered AirScale equipment portfolio.
Nokia’s AirScale RAN portfolio, which will cover GO’s network, covers all deployment scenarios including dense-urban environments and wide-area coverage and is designed for seamless, simple, and efficient ‘plug-in’ deployment and reduced power consumption.
“GO is one of the biggest investors in Malta’s digital infrastructure. This is another step forward in our efforts to enable, enhance and improve our customers’ lives through the latest technologies, with the fastest, uncapped mobile speeds,” Nikhil Patil, CEO of GO Malta, said.
Tommi Uitto, President of Mobile Networks at Nokia, said: “Our latest AirScale portfolio will support GO’s ambitions for super-fast mobile connectivity that will support the foundations for cutting-edge new use cases.”
