Slovenian operator T-2 has awarded a 5-year 5G network contract to Nokia.
The deal will see Nokia upgrade T-2’s existing Single RAN radio footprint as well as introduce enhanced 5G new radio (NR) services. The project is expected to deliver ultra-fast, low-latency, and high-capacity 5G connectivity delivering superior coverage to businesses and consumers alike.
Nokia will provide equipment from its latest AirScale radio portfolio, all powered by Nokia's energy-efficient ReefShark System-on-Chip technology. This includes 5G RAN, AirScale base stations, and Nokia AirScale radio access products including its Single RAN portfolio for both indoor and outdoor coverage. These solutions will offer faster speeds and wider mobile coverage. Nokia will also provide digital design and deployment for a faster time to market as well as optimisation and technical support services.
T-2 is one of the largest telecommunications providers in Slovenia and recently secured frequencies in the 2100MHz and 2300MHz bands at Slovenia’s spectrum auction. Nokia is a long-standing provider and key strategic supplier to T-2, and is the sole vendor for this contract.
Jozef Zrimsek, CTO at T-2, said: “This important project will enhance the delivery of compelling new 5G services and use cases to our subscribers across the country.”
Tommi Uitto, President of Mobile Networks at Nokia, said: “Our latest AirScale portfolio will help support T-2’s ambitious 5G roll-out plans and deliver incredible connectivity experiences across the country.”
