Nokia, Ericsson to roll out Telefonica Spain's 5G SA network - report

Monday 14 June 2021 | 13:48 CET | News
Telefonica has decided to award contracts to roll out its 5G standalone (SA) radio networks across Spain to Ericsson and Nokia, rather than longtime partner Huawei, reports business daily Expansion. The radio equipment upgrade deals will allow Telefonica to transition from 5G NSA to 5G SA using its 22,000 base stations across Spain and 100 MHz of frequencies in the 3.5 GHz band as well as the frequencies it intends to bid for in next month's 700 MHz band auction.
