UScellular – the fourth largest MNO in the United States – has selected Nokia to roll out its Standalone (SA) 5G core network. The vendor was previously chosen to deploy UScellular’s RAN, with Nokia supplying its AirScale radios for both low-band and millimetre wave (mmWave) 5G. According to the two parties, the deployment is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
