Sonera tests 4G small cells with Nokia at Flow Festival

Friday 12 August 2016 | 16:32 CET | News
Finnish operator Sonera announced it's testing a new small cell technology with Nokia to improve coverage at the Flow Festival this weekend in Helsinki. The small cells are easier to install around the festival site and will boost capacity to deal with the concentration of users on the 4G network. This is the first time the technology has been used at a large public event in Finland. Sonera said the technology also prepares the way for 5G, which will see increased use of small cells to bring the network closer to users, with increased capacity and lower latency.
