(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) TOT, Thailand s state-owned telecom operator, has appointed Nokia Siemens Networks to upgrade its 3G network to HSPA+.
The upgrade of 3G network will boost mobile broadband services for 7.2 million TOT customers and boost download speeds to even 42Mbps over the present 7.2 Mbps.

TOT network, including GSM and 3G, will be supervised and optimized by Nokia Siemens Networks NetAct network management system. NSN will also offer its Location Based Services solution allowing TOT to provide Value Added Services (VAS), including localized advertising.
Monchai Noosong, Acting President of TOT, said, The Thai mobile market is extremely competitive, so we always need to ensure we are well ahead of the curve. With demand for data skyrocketing and operators looking to venture into the 3G space, we knew this was the right time to upgrade our 3G network. Nokia Siemens Networks has helped us scale up quickly enabling us to ride the mobile broadband wave sweeping the country. In addition, the company s solution ensures an easy migration to LTE once that becomes topical for us. Krittika Mahattanakul, Head of Asia North at Nokia Siemens Networks for Asia Pacific region, said, As smartphones become more common also in Thailand and people start using data heavy applications on them, it is important that the mobile broadband networks can manage the capacity needs and provide enjoyable customer experience. TOT is ensuring this by upgrading its network to HSPA+ early on.
