Nokia Siemens Networks to expand 3G network in Slovenia

(EquityBites Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) 29 November 2010 - Slovenian mobile operator Tusmobil will expand its 3G network via the Flexi Multiradio Base Station, FlexiPacket Microwave and the complete IP-backhaul platform of Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN), the Finnish-German telecoms equipment maker said today.

No financial details were available.

The operator will provide peak rates of up to 21 Mbps by migrating to an all-IP, HSPA+ network including IPv6 and Direct Tunnel on the 900 MHz frequency band, Nokia Siemens added.

Under the three-year deal, the telecoms equipment maker will implement the Radio Access Network (RAN) across the country which will reduce the customer's operational costs, improve energy efficiency, and enhance coverage quality and reach. NSN is responsible for the supply, deployment and integration of the operator's IP-network.

Nokia Siemens will also provide network implementation services including construction works, as well as care services for the operator. In addition, it will provide network optimisation and management solutions based on its NetAct system.

Nokia Siemens Networks is a 50/50 joint venture between Finnish Nokia Oyj (HEL: NOK1V) and German Siemens AG (FRA: SIE).
