Telenor and Telia’s joint network (TTN) build will speed up with the addition of 3.5 GHz spectrum.
Nokia is the exclusive supplier of 5G RAN for TTN. The network “modernisation” will focus initially on Denmark’s four largest cities before expanding to cover most Danish customers in 2022.
Nokia will provide its ReefShark system on a chip (SoC), based AirScale 5G RAN portfolio including 5G Massive MIMO antennas.
The vendor will continue its partnership with both companies and the operation of the joint network, which started in 2012. Nokia, with Telenor and Telia, was the first to test 5G in Denmark and among the first to activate 5G on a shared network.
TTN is Denmark’s largest mobile network with more than 4,300 sites. The merger between the two networks first began in 2012 with the companies owning 50% each of the network.
