Singapore's network infrastructure provider, SP Telecom announced that it is collaborating with Nokia to enable faster go-to-market solutions for 5G deployment in Singapore.

SP Telecom will deploy Nokia’s latest FP4-based Service Router, optical transport and cloud software solutions, together with its service automation and network orchestration application suite, on its new data fibre network. When ready in 2020, the intelligent data fibre network will enable both Fixed and 5G carriers to deploy Cloud-based Virtual Private Network (VPN) and 5G offerings for their government and enterprise customers. 

5G carriers will also have the option of leveraging SP Telecom’s pervasive hubs around the island as locations for their 5G base stations, enabling computing and analysis at the edge of the network and delivering improved latency and network performance for end users.

Besides adding intelligence to the network to support 5G deployment, SP Telecom’s existing infrastructure is also an alternative fibre network that is highly resilient and provides network diversity. It uses unique fibre pathways that combine leased SP Group infrastructure and owned fibre pipes, laid alongside the power network cables. It is also a highly efficient network that supports ultra-low latency for 5G players.

Titus Yong, CEO, SP Telecom
We are well poised to facilitate the rollout of 5G in Singapore, working closely with our technology partners to deliver a reliable, high-performance and seamless network for 5G players and their customers.

Stuart Hendry, Head of Transport, Energy and Public Sector for Asia Pasific and Japan, Nokia
