Nokia unveiled the world's most powerful internet routing platforms that will ensure modern networks are faster, safer and dramatically more adaptable. Nokia FP4 silicon provides a generational performance boost over existing solutions while delivering improved network security and intelligence.
PCCW Global has collaborated with ATM Mobilis, a leading Algerian mobile telecommunications company and subsidiary of Algeria Telecom, whereby ATM Mobilis will be able to provide customers with access to PCCW Global's international connectivity as well as a portfolio of robust managed network solutions, managed security solutions and Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) offerings.
Nokia innovation and testing has underlined the flexibility, upgradeability and scalability of its AirScale radio portfolio to adapt to the frequency bands that will deliver the promise of 5G in initial applications of the technology. By proving the ability of AirScale to support both low and high bands, operators will be able to provide wide area coverage and indoor coverage from the first day of 5G operations without the need for complicated network reconfigurations.
Nokia has announced a significant industry breakthrough in the effort to better support mobile fronthaul and latency sensitive services. In a world-first, Nokia Bell Labs showed it is now possible to use a commercial next generation PON (NG-PON) to transport ultra-low latency CPRI streams via a standard single fiber running between the Baseband Unit (BBU) and the Remote Radio Head (RRH). The proof-of concept demonstration was done in accordance with the latency budget requirements for the fronthaul of commercial radio equipment, showing that existing fiber networks can be used to cost-efficiently transport mobile traffic and help accelerate 5G.
Telecom network equipment giant Nokia recently completed discussions for laying off employees in its home country of Finland. As a result of the talks, Nokia will cut 170 jobs, the company stated on June 9.
Ericsson has been awarded an extension of its Managed Services contract with Zain Iraq until 2021, after successfully providing Managed Services for Networks, IT and value-added services to the operator since 2012.
Huawei is exhibiting at Interop Tokyo 2017 - Japan's largest ICT exhibition - from June 7 to June 9, with a display themed "Leading New ICT, the Road to Digital Transformation".

Huawei leads with the completion of China's second-phase 5G radio technology test in Huairou District, Beijing. This test procedure was organized by IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group. During the C-Band test, Huawei adopted 5G New Radio, Massive MIMO, and other technologies using the entire 200 MHz bandwidth to achieve over 6 Gbps of single-user downlink throughput and over 18 Gbps of cell peak rate. The world's first Huawei 5G test terminal was utilized for radio technology verification. This terminal enabled more than 100 channels of on demand 4K UHD video in a single 5G base station. The clarity and smooth playback in vehicle-mounted mobile scenarios helped to demonstrate a superior experience offered by 5G C-Band Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB).
As the fourth largest converging telecommunications operator with their own fixed and mobile infrastructures in the Spanish market, MASMOVIL has selected Ericsson to provide a wide array of solutions and services, including core network evolution based on Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), enterprise billing, managed and systems support services, and deployment, installation and maintenance of fiber to the home (FTTH).So, while the size of the deal might not be earth-shattering it will certainly provide a good platform for Ericsson to show what it can do.
