Nokia Siemens to Modernize Network, Improve Reliability for WIND Hellas

Nokia Siemens Networks to consolidate fixed and mobile networks, boosting capacity and performance using Juniper Networks’ equipment.

Nokia Siemens Networks announced that the subscribers of WIND Hellas will enjoy a better communications experience as the operator is modernizing its IP network.

As per the three-year network modernization contract, Nokia Siemens Networks is redesigning and consolidating WIND Hellas’ fixed and mobile networks by providing a high capacity IP/MPLS backbone.

The technology aims to reduce network outages and energy consumption, improve network availability, increase capacity, and lower the total cost of ownership. The integration of  Juniper Networks routing, switching and security technology is expected to allow WIND Hellas to benefit from a more reliable, scalable and secure network.

“While our primary aim is to ensure our network evolves to provide the best experience to our subscribers, we also want to do this cost efficiently”, said Nikos Babalis, chief network officer, WIND Hellas. Nokia Siemens Networks has been our network technology provider for over a decade, delivering cost-efficient solutions to reduce our capital and operating costs. Moreover, its expertise in integrating various IP technologies, specifically that of Juniper Networks, makes it an ideal partner for this project.

“In today’s highly competitive market environment, operators need to upgrade their networks in a cost-effective manner while meeting end users’ needs satisfactorily”,  said Dimitrios Kiratsopoulos, head of WIND Hellas team at Nokia Siemens Networks. Our expertise will provide a long-term evolution path toward a fully IP-based network while enabling WIND to attract new subscribers and grow further.

Nokia Siemens Networks has undertaken end-to-end network design, planning and implementation as well as managing the overall migration for IP aggregation and backbone. The company also provides training services and a full set of care services, including help desk, preventive maintenance, on-site support and spare part management.

Nokia Siemens Networks’ design and integration expertise combined with the Juniper Networks MX Series, M Series, EX Series and SRX Series platforms fully focuses on creating a unified fixed-mobile core and edge platform to meet WIND’s business demands today and tomorrow.
