For the first time in the Middle East and Africa, STC, Nokia, and MediaTek have confirmed 3 component carrier aggregation (3CC-CA) in a 5G standalone (SA) network.
The verification was completed in the Saudi Arabian city of Makkah, and it will allow service providers to better utilize their spectrum resources.
This use case, according to STC, will open the way for others while also allowing the company to deploy 5G services to its entire client base.
“This significant, region-first testing of 3CC-CA in 5G SA mode reiterates our commitment to give a world-class service to our subscribers,” stated Bader Allhieb, STC’s infrastructure sector VP.
“Nokia’s carrier aggregation solution gives us a competitive advantage by offering our subscribers with best-in-class speed, capacity, and coverage.” We’re excited to keep working with Nokia to improve our 5G capabilities and efficiencies.”
