Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN) will implement an LTE (Long Term Evolution) network for Tele2 Netherlands. Under the contract, NSN is the supplier of the nationwide greenfield radio access network and related services to enable new 4G services, using the operator’s 2600MHz and 800MHz frequency bands.
Under the contract, NSN will provide a single RAN advanced (radio access network) platform, which is based on its energy-efficient Flexi multiradio 10 base station. As well as providing the NSN radio access security solution for authentication and data protection, the company will also implement the NetAct network management system to enable consolidated configuration, monitoring and optimization of the operator’s LTE network.
Professional services for the Tele2 network deployment include network planning and care services, such as hardware and software maintenance and competence development services.
“With the ever increasing demand to deliver high-bandwidth data services any time, anywhere, operators need to evolve their networks to adopt new technologies like LTE,” said Peter Wennerstrom, head of Tele2 global account team at NSN. “We are pleased to be entrusted with this project to help Tele2 build a highly innovative 4G network.”
