Zain KSA tests massive MIMO in 2.6 GHz band with Nokia

Tuesday 5 February 2019 | 08:53 CET | News
Nokia and Zain KSA have started a massive MIMO pilot in the city of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia on the TD-LTE network using 2.6 GHz spectrum. The pilot uses Nokia's 5G-ready AirScale massive MIMO antenna to improve network capacity and provide speeds of above 700 Mbps per user. Once the pilot is completed, the actual deployment will allow Zain to meet the growing demand for ultra-broadband services while deploying 5G-ready equipment.
