Nokia Siemens Network has been selected by Slovenian operator, Tusmobil, for the supply of 400 environmentally-friendly base stations to expand capacity and optimize core network efficiency.
The upgrade will significantly improve network efficiency and coverage, allowing Tusmobil to offer new services to its customers, including high-speed mobile data and multimedia, like mobile television, NSN said. The network will also feature HSPA (high speed packet access) supporting network data rates of up to 14 Mbps to compatible handsets or devices.
“Nokia Siemens Networks is excited to support the expansion of Tusmobil’s range of services with the fast deployment of a ‘green’ and environmentally-friendly technology, being one of a kind in Europe,” said Konstantinos Koroneos, Customer Team Head for Tusmobil at Nokia Siemens Networks. “We are proud to extend our successful partnership with Tusmobil from their existing GSM/EDGE network to an innovative and modern high speed multimedia network for the future.”
The update equipment will consists of Nokia Siemens Networks’s Flexi base station, which offers power savings at each site of over 60% compared to traditional 3G equipment and allows for the reduction of the number of sites required to provide the improved services by over 25%, Nokai said. In addition, the Nokia Siemens Networks MSC Server softswitch solution, based on 3GPP Release 4, allows operators to boost switching capacity with savings of up to 70 percent in operating expenses, while fully supporting future IP multimedia services.
