Nokia was the first to manufacture the 5G New Radio in India, and now it is now producing the Nokia AirScale maMIMO solution at the Chennai facility.

The equipment is already being exported to many countries in advanced stages of 5G deployment, said Nokia. “Nokia’s Chennai plant is a significant contributor to the government’s `Make in India’ initiative to boost domestic manufacturing designed to position India as a manufacturing hub for the latest telecom gear.”

India’s telecom sector, in the efforts of enabling policies including more quantum of the spectrum, is set to establish new benchmarks in the next-generation network deployments and service delivery.
