BT and Nokia achieve 5G first

Working in collaboration with Nokia, BT has become the first operator in Europe to aggregate four carrier components (4CC) in a 5G Standalone live network.

The trial was conducted in two stages; it was first performed in BT’s Radio Lab in Bristol, and then moved outdoors, onto a radio mast at BT’s Adastral Park in Suffolk.

“5G Standalone, coupled with edge compute, will unlock new opportunities for customers looking to develop new services,” said Greg McCall, MD Service Platforms BT.
