Si.mobil has become the first operator to launch commercial LTE services in Slovenia. Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) is providing the radio access network and related services for the operator’s 4G network. Si.mobil’s subscribers in Ljubljana, Brnik and Bled now have access to ultra high-speed 4G mobile broadband with data speeds up to 100 Mbps.
‘Our customers can now enjoy a significantly superior user experience with fast download and response times,’ said Johannes Nabecker, director of Access and Transport Network at Si.mobil. ‘Nokia Siemens Networks has realized our vision of deploying a future-ready network across Ljubljana, Brnik and Bled.
Users in these cities can now enjoy data speeds typically ranging from 30 to 80 Mbps.’ NSN is providing its Single Radio Access Network (RAN) based on its award-winning, energy-efficient Flexi Multiradio Base Station. This enables Si.mobil to efficiently provide 4G services to its customers.
Under the contract, NSN is also supplying its NetAct network management system. This ensures consolidated monitoring and optimization for Si.mobil’s 2G, 3G and 4G networks. The company also provides support services including commissioning and optimization of the base stations.
‘It took us just one month to implement this deal that paves the way for the introduction of 4G services in Slovenia,’ said Daria Horvat, account manager at Nokia Siemens Networks. ‘We are proud to partner Si.mobil in its endeavour to provide the best user experience to customers.’
