Nokia picked as Elisa’s nationwide 5G RAN supplier in Finland

Finland’s operator Elisa selected Nokia as the nationwide supplier of 5G RAN gear in Finland. Nokia will provide its AirScale 5G RAN portfolio, which is a continuation of the land-standing partnership between Nokia and Elisa.

Nokia and Elisa will also focus on migrating their mobile network to radios that will serve both 4G and 5G subscribers, because Elisa plans to phase out its 3G network by 2023.

The Finnish telco and Nokia are also caring about the environment, with Elisa being the first operator to install Nokia’s liquid-cooling 5G base station with lower CO2 emissions by up to 80%.
