Nokia NOK has been selected by Chunghwa Telecom (“CHT”) to augment its 5G network across Taiwan’s central and southern regions.

Per this two-year deal, Nokia will provide equipment from its energy-efficient AirScale portfolio across 4,000 new sites to improve the overall performance.

Also, it will help CHT to maintain its market leadership by unlocking the full potential of 5G while achieving a lower carbon footprint.

Nokia will provide CHT with a range of solutions from its AirScale Single RAN equipment portfolio. This includes macro base stations, small cells, 5G Massive MIMO antennas and passive RRH supporting different spectrum bands.

These advanced solutions will expand CHT’s 5G coverage and ensure the best user experience for indoor and outdoor enterprise use cases.

The deal also includes network implementation and optimization services. It will see Nokia continue its long-term vendor partnership with CHT, which began from the deployment of 2G networks.

This deal will help CHT maintain its position as the leading mobile operator in Taiwan’s highly competitive market by delivering innovative services to customers.
