Nokia deploys private 3.5GHz LTE network for Elektro

17 Oct 2018

Nokia has been selected by Brazilian power distributor Elektro – part of the Neoenergia/Iberdrola group – to deploy a private LTE network to increase the reliability and efficiency of the electrical grid in the City of Atibaia and surrounding areas in the state of Sao Paulo. The network will provide business-critical connectivity for grid equipment, smart meters, substations and distributed energy generation sources throughout the service area.

The two parties claim that the network – which will serve more than 75,000 homes and businesses – is the first of its kind in Brazil and also represents the first installation of a 3.5GHz LTE network in South America.
