Tele2 Netherlands has tapped Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN) for its LTE network.
Mobile broadband solutions provider NSN will supply radio access network and related services to enable new 4G services, using the operator’s 2600 MHz and 800 MHz frequency bands.
“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.
NSN will provide its Single RAN advanced, Radio Access security solution for authentication and data protection and NetAct network management system.
NSN said professional services for the Tele2 network deployment include network planning and care services, such as hardware and software maintenance and competence development services.
Meanwhile, SK Telecom, LG U+ and Korea Telecom — three South Korean operators – recently launched LTE-Advanced commercially using NSN’s Flexi Multiradio base stations.
NSN has assisted SK Telecom, LG U+ and Korea Telecom to reach 150 Mbps throughput by combining the resources of the two LTE frequency bands. The carrier aggregation feature doubles the data rates compared to those before the upgrade.
