MTN selects Nokia for voice upgrades in South Africa

14 Sep 2021

Nokia has announced that it has been selected by MTN to drive its voice core evolution and network modernisation in South Africa. By leveraging Nokia’s 5G cloud infrastructure and cloud-native IMS, MTN South Africa is modernising and expanding its Voice-over-Broadband (VoB), Voice-over-WiFi (VoWiFi) and Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE), a digital service over its LTE network that gives users faster and more reliable connectivity experiences. Nokia IMS and VoLTE lay the foundation for Voice over 5G, a fundamental requirement for the introduction of 5G for mobile phones. Through this strategic and longstanding partnership between the two companies, MTN is also able to expand the modernisation of its networks to other African countries.
