With the changing landscape of how the world works, learns, and entertains, the demand for high speed networks has dramatically increased over the last couple years. This increasing demand applies as much or perhaps more to rural areas, which have traditionally been underserved. Nokia is the leader in long-haul microwave and has enhanced its long-haul portfolio to support rural backhaul connectivity. This exclusive Nokia webinar session will cover the updated Nokia solution and feature a new product launch. We will also look at how such solutions are used by service providers and private network operators.
