Sudatel, Nokia partner to enhance fixed and mobile broadband access in Sudan

3 Jul 2018

Nokia has announced that it is collaborating with Sudatel on the delivery of ultra-broadband services in Sudan, as the operator looks to evolve its network to meet growing customer demands. The pair will trial Nokia 4.5G Pro, 4.9G and 5G mobile technologies, along with Nokia’s fixed fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) portfolio to enhance the mobile and residential broadband experience in Sudan. The collaboration will focus initially on the capital city of Khartoum.

Nokia and Sudatel will conduct several different use-case tests using Nokia fixed and mobile technologies in Nokia Laboratories in Espoo, Finland and Antwerp, Belgium. With an initial focus on enhancing mobile data services in Khartoum, the companies will evaluate how the 5G-ready AirScale radio access portfolio can increase capacity and speeds, while providing a path to 5G in the future. In addition, Sudatel will leverage Nokia’s PON fibre solutions to enhance the residential broadband experience. The companies will conduct a high-speed fixed technology trial in Khartoum, starting in July.
