Sudan's Sudatel will be trialing Nokia 4.5G Pro, 4.9G and 5G mobile technologies along with Nokia's fixed FTTH portfolio to enhance the mobile and residential broadband experience in the country, says Nokia.

The collaboration will focus initially on the capital city of Khartoum. Nokia and Sudatel will conduct several different use-case tests using Nokia fixed and mobile technologies in Nokia Laboratories in Espoo, Finland and Antwerp, Belgium. With an initial focus on enhancing mobile data services in Khartoum, the companies will evaluate how the 5G-ready AirScale radio access portfolio, can increase capacity and speeds today while providing a path to 5G in the future.

In addition, Sudatel will leverage Nokia's passive optical networking (PON) fiber solutions to enhance the residential broadband experience. The companies will conduct a high-speed fixed technology trial in Khartoum, starting in July.
