STC announced that it has completed a Multi-Vendor-Integration-Verification (MVIV) for its Huawei and Cisco core infrastructure with Ericsson and Nokia supplied 5G Radio Networks.

STC said it will continue to boost its 5G network capabilities and strives to provide best “Ultra High Speed & Low Latency” experience for its customers through the newly emerging 5G network. Following the 5G launch in 2018, STC and its global partners have continued to cooperate to enhance the 5G ecosystem in the country. These joint interoperability successes will ensure seamless interworking between all elements of STC infrastructure and will deliver the best possible results, says STC.

This critical achievement will speed up the introduction of the latest 5G technologies and nurture the growth of 5G services to fulfill ever-growing market expectations. As a result, this development will act as a solid step towards meeting total national digitization transformation. This milestone will enable flexibility and agility in our field deployment and ensures smoother launch of services.

This is also viewed as a direct contribution in compliance with the latest 3GPP Release.
