Nokia Secures 10Year 5G Contract With Antina in Singapore

Nokia has been awarded a ten-year extension to its existing 5G network deal with Antina, a joint venture between M1 and StarHub mobile network operators in Singapore. This comes after a competitive tender process. Nokia will deploy an indoor and outdoor 5G Standalone (SA) network, and also expand the existing network by utilizing Antina’s 3.5GHz spectrum holdings.

This deal will improve the 5G connectivity experience for businesses and consumers, and foster Singapore’s 5G ecosystem. Earlier, Nokia and Bosch have unveiled their new 5G-based precision positioning technology, developed for the cutting-edge Industry 4.0.

Nokia will be equipping new buildings in Singapore with its AirScale indoor Radio (ASiR) small cell solution to provide seamless indoor coverage. The energy-efficient AirScale portfolio includes 5G base stations, massive MIMO adaptive antennas, and dual-band remote radio heads (RRH).

Singapore will be utilizing its spectrum in the 2.1 GHz and 3.5 GHz bands, which will deliver a 5G user experience with high bandwidth, ultra-fast speeds, and low latency.

Speaking on the announcement, Danny Tan, CEO at Antina, commented

Commenting on the announcement, Tommi Uitto, President of Mobile Networks, Nokia, said:

This long-term extension to our contract demonstrates Antina’s trust in our technology leadership and the strength of our product portfolio. Our high-performance networks deliver a premium 5G experience adding coverage and capacity where it is needed in both indoor and outdoor locations. Singapore is creating a world-class 5G environment and we are proud to work alongside them in this important project.
