Nokia implementing ultra-high capacity microwave technology for Djezzy

1 Jul 2020

Nokia has completed a trial with Algerian mobile operator Djezzy using microwave carrier aggregation technology with high capacity and reduced latency to support increased 4G mobile traffic demand. The trial utilised Nokia’s Wavence microwave transport solution with capacity of 8.5Gbps (compared to existing 3.5Gbps capacity) over a distance of 5.7km. Eric Bourland, Chief Digital and Technology Officer at Djezzy, said: ‘This is an important trial that delivers ultra-high capacity granting Djezzy a solid solution for Mobile Backhaul. We believe this fast deployment of microwave carrier aggregation will help us achieve our goal of boosting eMBB. It also allows us to improve our network capacity in order to meet the growing mobile traffic demand in Algeria.’
