DITO’s aim to construct a high-quality 5G network throughout the country will now be possible.
Nokia is increasing users speed, capacity, and latencies while reducing complexity and saving costs via enhanced energy efficiency. Nokia is offering the MIMO, multi-band, Single RAN AirScale portfolio to offer a 5G RAN for Mindanao, the Philippines second largest island, which is required to achieve the high-performance network target.
DITO also used Nokia NetAct solution for day-to-day operations, such as configuration management, monitoring, and software management. Nokia provided digital design and deployment services, as well as optimization and technical support.
Nokia’s President of Mobile Networks, Tommi Uitto, commented: “We are proud to continue our partnership with DITO into the 5G era and help deliver its ambitious plans for 5G connectivity. We are also delighted that DITO has selected our industry-leading 5G RAN solutions to underpin its new network, which will deliver incredible connectivity experiences for businesses and people.”
Since 2020, Nokia has been a 4G LTE radio partner. DITO, a joint venture between Udenna Group and China Telecom, is the Philippines newest telecommunications provider, with plans to build a new network in the country.
