DTAC taps Nokia for 2300MHz TD-LTE rollout

12 Jul 2018

Thai cellco DTAC has enlisted Nokia to deploy what it claims is the country’s first commercial TD-LTE network. The new platform – which utilises 2300MHz spectrum – will be marketed under the ‘TURBO’ brand, and rolled out in the North-east, North and South of Thailand, including major provinces such as Khon Kaen, Chiang Mai, and Phuket.

The Nokia AirScale platform will utilise a combination of advanced techniques, namely tri-band carrier aggregation (3C), 256 QAM and 4×4 MIMO functionality, and pave the way for DTAC’s future introduction of 5G technology.
