Nokia's 5G-ready AirScale Cloud RAN solution and controllers have been successfully deployed by Telenor Pakistan, further advancing its goal of digital transformation to optimize the end customer experience, improve total cost of ownership and quickly respond to emerging opportunities.

This marks the first deployment of the AirScale Base Station Controller (BSC) and AirScale Radio Network Controller (RNC) on AirFrame cloud infrastructure in Pakistan, and the first cloud-based BSC deployment in the Middle East and Africa region.

The Nokia solution reduces network complexity and operational cost, allowing service providers to provide innovative services more cost effectively. The added agility that this software delivers will enhance efficiency, and prepare them for 5G.

Khurrum Ashfaque, CTO, Telenor Pakistan
Together with Nokia's cloud solutions, we are well on our way to accelerating digital transformation. We will have added flexibility to scale the radio network resources based on demand as well as greater agility, which is critical as a significant percentage of our subscribers continue to use 2G and 3G services.

Adil Munir Malik, Country Senior Officer for Pakistan, Nokia
Our award-winning AirScale Cloud RAN solution and controllers further the operator's digitalization and prepare its networks for 5G. Our cloud based solutions will benefit Telenor Pakistan through virtualization, bringing down the operational cost and allowing them to scale quickly in line with market demands.
