Chennai: Finnish telecom products maker Nokia has begun manufacturing 5G- ready multiband base station in India from its facility at Oragadam near Chennai. The company said it will start shipping the product to global customers by next week. While production has begun at its plant in Finland, the Orgadam plant will take a major portion of the mass production. The Nokia AirScale multiband station supports advanced network features, allowing service providers to increase performance in their networks and prepare for the evolution of 5G and IoT (Internet of Things). The product has been built in a way that it supports existing networks like 2G, 3G and 4G and when 5G comes, the service provider is only required to update their software.
