TELE Greenland taps NSN to deploy LTE, modernize GSM and 3G networks

Telecom operator TELE Greenland has selected Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN) to deploy 4G LTE network and modernize its existing GSM and 3G networks.

The LTE deal between TELE Greenland and NSN involves supply of radio access equipment, core network elements and related services.

TELE Greenland is looking at launching 4G broadband services in the capital city of Nuuk.

NSN did not share the size of the 4G deal and the launch plans.


“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 engineering at TELE Greenland.

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 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.

NSN says the NetAct network management system offers d monitoring, management and operation of TELE Greenland’s network while implementation, network optimization, planning and care services ensure high-quality and cost-efficient operations.
