Nokia and Ooredoo Oman have announced the deployment of ‘super fast and reliable’ 4G and 5G fixed wireless access (FWA) services throughout the Sultanate. Work to deploy the Nokia FastMile 4G FWA solution commenced in February 2021 and has seen 15,000 homes and businesses connected, while a further 3,000 homes will soon receive 5G coverage in city centres. Nokia FastMile includes customer premise equipment (CPE) with a built-in modem and antenna, a cloud-based controller for point of sales, monitoring and control, and smartphone applications for installation and support. Together they provide an end-to-end solution delivering guaranteed sustained rates to subscribers.

‘Fixed wireless access is a critical part of our strategy to provide high speed internet across Oman,’ commented Ooredoo Oman CEO Noor Al Sulaiti, adding: ‘Nokia’s solution offers a great 4G and 5G experience, so that more of our customers can enjoy the internet with us. The service will take connectivity to the next level, supporting the demands of our residential and business customers for superfast and reliable connectivity.’
