Denmark's Cibicom to get Nokia mission-critical LTE network

Nokia has announced an agreement with Danish operator and internet service provider Cibicom to implement a new 450 MHz LTE network.

The project aims to ensure that key mission-critical services have access to secure connectivity, as well as to build preparedness for mass-volume IoT adoption.

The deal will involve replacing the existing Cibicom radio networks and migrating them to a new framework that will enable full 4G data coverage and IoT connectivity.

Cibicom acquired a 450 MHz licence in June, with the aim of improving its offering to utility companies while also ensuring that the company is well placed to adapt to changing customer requirements and offer new opportunities and application support around 3.5 GHz 5G.

Smart grids and remote-managed petrol stations are just some of the areas where these systems will be needed, as well as ‘blue light’ emergency services, such as the police and ambulance services.

Currently, Cibicom covers 98% of Denmark. The deal will maintain that level of coverage, as well as provide improved connectivity for private households in Greenland.

“Our decision to choose Nokia was based not only on their radio access technology but also their ability to provide a service that is reliable, robust and secure,” said Mette Slesvig, COO Operations at Cibicom.

“With IoT and managed services becoming increasingly important to our critical business customers, we need a partner that can not only provide network and service quality support for LTE-M communications, but can adapt with us to provide more capacity and be ready for whatever customers need us to provide.”

“Radio networks supplying waste, water, energy and transportation services must not only be foundationally sound and built to last, but also prioritise security, quality and reliability,” said Lise Karstensen, Head of Nordics at Nokia.

“In addition, these sectors are also witnessing a growing need for IoT-powered remote monitoring and management solutions, increasing the focus on network and service quality, as well as uptime.”
