TELE Greenland, the country’s sole telecom operator, has selected Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN) as the single supplier to implement its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network and modernise its existing GSM and 3G networks.
The complete solution provided by NSN includes radio access equipment, core network elements and related services. TELE Greenland customers in the capital city of Nuuk now enjoy access to ultra-fast 4G mobile broadband connections.
To enable new 4G capabilities and improve the quality of GSM and 3G services, NSN replaced TELE Greenland’s network with its single RAN Advanced (radio access network) platform, featuring its Flexi Multiradio 10 base station. The scope of the five-year deal also involves delivering NSN’s Evolved Packet Core (EPC) platform, including Flexi NG (network gateway) and Flexi NS (network server).
Voice services for GSM, 3G and 4G are provided by NSN’s Mobile Voice Core and Circuit Switched Fallback (CSFB) solutions. The NetAct network management system offers consolidated monitoring, management and operation of TELE Greenland’s network while implementation, network optimisation, planning and care services ensure high-quality and cost-efficient operations.
“We are excited about the unparalleled services and experience that LTE introduces to the market and how it significantly improves customers’ lives,” said Jonas Hasselriis, head of engeniering at TELE Greenland.
“We teamed up with NSN to offer fast, on-the-go internet connectivity and high-quality mobile broadband to our customers because NSN has proven experience in LTE and a strong commitment to the technology. All this made it the ideal choice as a partner for this comprehensive project.”
“TELE Greenland has been our trusted customer for over a decade,” said Peter Edbom, account manager at NSN. “When we introduce our latest technologies to improve the existing network, we are helping TELE Greenland deliver superior mobile broadband with the highest data rates and shortest latency times possible.”
