Nokia signs 5G equipment deal with AT&T

Nokia signed a five-year deal with AT&T to deploy a 5G network on the company’s C-Band spectrum in parts of the USA, according to a Reuters report. Nokia announced that its portfolio for C-Band, satellite transmissions in the frequency range of 4 to 8GHz, includes support for different 5ag networks, cloud-based implementations, and Open RAN products. AT&T won in February 2021 US$78 billion in bids in the US government’s auction for a C-band spectrum.
