BH Telecom has chosen Nokia Siemens Networks to upgrade its network to provide 3G mobile broadband access across the northern and eastern parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina. NSN will provide a 3G HSPA+ radio access network and related services for the rollout.
To modernize BH Telecom’s network, NSN will implement its Flexi Multiradio Base Station, which the company says is the industry’s smallest and most energy-efficient offering and is modular and easy to implement.
The rollout will include 3G deployment on the 2100MHz and 900MHz bands for greater coverage, as well as dual cell HSPA+ for higher data speeds. NSN will also upgrade the multi-vendor network management system NetAct to efficiently monitor, optimise and configure BH Telecom’s networks.
In addition, NSN will provide a range of services including project management, network implementation, optimization, and care services to improve network efficiency and enhance the quality of service.
‘Our customers are increasingly adopting advanced smartphones and tablets which require the best quality possible in terms of coverage and network performance,’ said Nedžad Rešidbegovic, CEO of BH Telecom.
‘Nokia Siemens Networks’ range of solutions and excellent support services in mobile broadband will deliver superior network quality so that we can address the upsurge in today’s networks. Subscribers will soon enjoy high-speed mobile broadband services such as video downloads and internet browsing with data speeds up to 30Mbps.’
