StarHub is sticking with Nokia as its equipment partner to build out its 5G standalone network. The move is touted to allow the Singapore telco to run 5G services independent of existing 4G network technology.
The move comes six months after StarHub rolled out its non-standalone 5G services. In a statement Tuesday, it said it had again partnered Nokia to tap the latter’s cloud-native Core platform to roll out standalone 5G services. This would include radio, software, security, and professional services, StarHub said, adding that it was projecting to begin offering services in the third quarter.
