The telecoms kit maker Nokia is chosen by Finnish Shared Networks to deploy 5G RAN in Northern and Eastern Finland, as well as replacing the existing 2G, 3G, and 4G networks deployed by Huawei five years ago.
Telia will use 5G equipment from compatriot Ericsson in its home country but will turn to Nokia for its Finnish operations. Starting with Telia in Sweden, the company has signed a five-year agreement with Ericsson which it says “brings together two of the region’s wireless pioneers” to provide a great 5G experience for the operator’s...

With Sweden having recently banned Chinese kit vendors, the only surprise in Telia’s announcement was Nokia getting all is 5G standalone core work.
Sweden has named the telcos that will participate in its 5G spectrum auction, but the real headline-grabber is that it has also barred Huawei and ZTE from supplying the winners with equipment.
Swedish telco group Telia has bowed out of the international carrier services market.

Swedish operator group Telia showed it’s not entirely monogamous with Ericsson by picking Nokia to run its new 5G network in the new Mall of Tripla in Helsinki.While a single shopping centre might not seem like the biggest deal win, it will serve as a case study into all the capacity goodness promised by 5G.Using both Nokia base stations and small cell gear, shoppers at the mall will presumably be able to download the entire internet in one nanosecond and all the other good things promised by 5G enhanced mobile broadband.“We are seeing increased demand for better connectivity at shopping centers, stadiums and large events, which is why the 5G network rollout at the Mall of Tripla is a milestone for both Nokia and Telia,” said Ari Kynäslahti, Head of Mobile Networks Product Management at Nokia.I am particularly proud of the way our 5G AirScale Indoor Radio small cells have been able to be discretely installed inside the mall for excellent, seamless indoor coverage.The retail industry has the potential to be one of the big beneficiaries of 5G and we are excited to see how consumers and businesses benefit from this 5G network at the largest shopping center in the Nordics.”
Ericsson has announced it will be the sole RAN vendor for Telia Norway, with the pair driving towards completing a nationwide rollout by 2023.While the duo already had a relationship in place, Huawei might have hoped this was a market it would benefit in.At the end of September, the Norwegian Government indicated it was not going to pass a wide-spread ban on Huawei equipment, while the Chinese vendor has signed an MOU with the telcos parent company and does have a relationship to supply 4G network infrastructure equipment with the Norwegian subsidiary.Telia Norway might not be the biggest telco, nor does it have the largest network, though being announced as a sole supplier is an ego boost if nothing else.The fact that this is a Nordic deal win might have some extra significance in Ericsson’s rivalry with Nokia.Being Swedish you might expect Telia to favour compatriot Ericsson, but it has no problem working with Nokia in Finland.
Finnish network vendor Nokia has decided its strategy should be directed by Gabriela Styf Sjöman, formerly of Swedish operator group Telia.Sjöman (pictured) will replace long-time Chief Strategy Officer Kathrin Buvac, who isn’t leaving Nokia, but will now focus entirely running Nokia’s enterprise division.This move would appear to signify that the enterprise business group, which was only created at the start of this year, requires Buvac’s undivided attention.Whether or not this is because it’s going well or badly remains to be seen.It seems like a good idea to have operator expertise in a networking vendor strategy team and Sjöman is presumably up to speed on the techie side too, her most recent role at Telia being at the head of its networks division.Nokia is also making much of the fact that she has lived all over the world, having grown up in Mexico and got an MBA from Durham University in the UK, but the fact that she was at rival Ericsson for ten years until 2014 will presumably have been viewed as a plus too.
In the ever-lasting search for 5G usecases, Telia has teamed-up with Finnish bank OP to trial facial recognition payment solutions.The issue which is not being discussed here, though certainly warrants more attention in the public domain, is the ethical, responsible and transparent application of the technology.Firstly, biometrics are becoming increasingly normalised in payments and financial services authentication through fingerprints or vocal recognition, this is just one step further.Secondly, it is theoretically more secure than current identification and authentication techniques.And finally, banks already have trusted relationships with the consumer, and are yet to be caught up with a privacy scandal.“Facial payment is a good example of a service that benefits from the capacity increase and lower latency of 5G,” said Janne Koistinen, Head of Telia Finland’s 5G programme.
Dennelind has a 12-month notice period, however, so he’s going nowhere in a hurry.But he’ll presumably be hoping they find his replacement sooner rather than later so he can have a nice big chunk of gardening leave and get some serious sauna time in.“It is a true privilege to serve as President and CEO of Telia Company, one of Sweden’s oldest and largest companies,” said Dennelind.“During the last years I have, together with the Board and my team, implemented a transformation and re-alignment of Telia into a company that is well-positioned and well-equipped for the future.“Telia Company is now entering a new phase with several opportunities for value-creation and with strong commitment from all our more than 20,000 employees.And it is after careful considerations that I now have decided to leave Telia and take on new challenges.
Swedish operator Telia is going to connect nearly a million smart meters using narrowband IoT technology.The deal has been signed with technology services company One Nordic, which is going to connect approximately 900,000 electricity meters for Swedish electricity distributor Ellevio using the low power wireless protocol.This is Telia’s biggest NB-IoT deal to date but the company has been keen on the commercial potential of the technology for a while.“NB-IoT is opening up a lot of new use cases for us,” said Björn Hansen, Head of IoT at Telia.“It provides deep indoor coverage, which is ideal for connecting utility meters underground or inside buildings.It also lets us deliver economies of scale that weren’t previously possible.
Norwegian telco Telenor has completed its reach across the Nordics, taking the first steps to acquire Finnish operator DNA.Telenor has now officially entered into agreements with DNA’s two largest shareholders Finda Telecoms and PHP, who hold stakes of 28.3% and 25.8% respectively.Following approval at the Finda Telecoms and PHP AGMs, and regulatory approval, a mandatory public tender offer will be triggered for the remaining outstanding shares in DNA by Telenor.The transaction is expected to be completed in Q3 2019, with the remaining shares being purchased for the same amount, valuing the entire DNA business at roughly €2.8 billion.“I am very pleased to announce today’s transaction and our entry into Finland, the fastest growing mobile market in Europe,” said Telenor Group CEO Sigve Brekke.“DNA is an exciting addition to Telenor Group, and a natural complement to our existing operations in the Nordic region.
The Danish Energy Agency has completed its latest spectrum auction, with TDC running away with the majority of the available assets.Of the 20 blocks in the 700, 900 and 2300 MHz frequency bands, TDC won 14, the maximum available to the telco at this auction.3 Denmark acquired two 10 MHz blocks in each of the 700 and 900 MHz bands, while TT Network, Telia and Telenor’s joint venture, two 5 MHz in the 700 MHz and two 10 MHz in the 900 MHz band.“Several frequency blocks provide higher speed, longer range and stronger indoor coverage, which gives us a unique position to strengthen and develop the best coverage in Denmark,” said TDC CEO Allison Kirkby.“TDC has connected all over Denmark for almost 140 years, and the new licenses ensure that Danish consumers, companies and society enjoy new experiences, services and the many opportunities that 5G offers.”With ambitious plans to rollout 5G across Denmark by the end of 2020, this is certainly an aggressive sign of intent from TDC.
Telia's chairman of the board Marie Ehrling welcomes the Stockholm district court acquittal judgment in muträttegången against three former Teliachefer, including ex-ceo Lars Nyberg.”Even if the Telia Company has not been a part of the district court case against the three former Teliaanställda, it has of course affected the company.It is part of a long process that started already in the year 2012,” writes Marie Ehrling in a comment in a press release.Nyberg and the other two mutanklagade managers left the company in 2013.Ehrling adds in his comment that she hope for now is that it is possible to put a paragraph of ”a painful and costly chapter”.According to the prosecutor Gunnar Stetlers indictment, the three former Teliacheferna for more than ten years ago have bribed the Uzbek diktatorsdottern Gulinara Karimova to get the mobile licenses in Uzbekistan.
Smartphones have gained popularity as video players over the past decade, but movie theaters have been adapting to the times, and their next evolutionary step could see big and little screens sharing the same streaming technology: 5G.In a partnership with Norwegian cellular carrier Telia, Odeon is now operating the world’s first 5G movie theater, displaying films that have been transferred over a live 5G network.Though Telia originally announced the initiative last December with the launch of a 5G test network at the Odeon Cinema Center in Oslo, the companies took until this year to use 5G in displaying films — again, a test, but one that shows how the next-generation cellular technology will supplant both 4G and some wired broadband service.As Odeon told ZDNet, the theater has found that livestreaming of theatrical films “works excellently” over 5G, though Odeon is largely using 5G to transfer the films to its own servers for repeated playback.The distinction is critically important as it demonstrates that responsive, high-bandwidth 5G wireless could be a viable alternative to local storage, even in commercial settings where buffering or audiovisual degradation would be problems for hundreds of viewers at once.While 4G LTE networks may struggle to maintain fluid 720p video streams, theatrical films typically run at 4K or greater resolutions with far less compression.
Just a few weeks after lighting up a 5G network in Sweden, Telia has taken the connectivity euphoria across the Baltic Sea to Estonia.In partnership with TalTech University, Telia has turned on Estonia’s first 5G network as a test bed for the university, as well as local companies and start-ups.The 5G network is a permanent installation using standardized and commercial 5G products.“We hope to see new and exciting future services and business models built upon 5G,” said Kirke Saar, CTO at Telia Estonia.“Thus, different stakeholders are welcome to test the possibilities of the new technology at the TalTech University.It is the perfect place for this, combining technical knowledge, smart people and cooperation experiences with very different partners.
