Nokia supplies radio for network sharing project of TT-Network


Nokia Networks supplied the radio and services for the single RAN network sharing project of TT-Network (TTN), a joint venture between TeliaSonera and Telenor.

This is the first time ever that a network across GSM, 3G and LTE has been supplied to two operators sharing the network and frequencies – improving coverage, capacity and better mobile broadband experience, said Nokia in a statement.

Johan Wickman, CEO at TT-Network, said: “No other operator has accomplished a multi-radio sharing initiative of such a broad scope.”

TTN’s process for creating a common infrastructure in Denmark started in 2012 with the merger of Telia’s and Telenor’s LTE networks, followed by 3G. Now the company has finalized the consolidation of the GSM portion.

To combine the two live-traffic nationwide networks, the operation – carried out across multiple technologies and frequencies in a multi-vendor core network environment – was planned in minute detail and performed so that there was no disruption to subscribers.

Nokia Networks implemented its Single RAN Advanced platform, built around the Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station to run all technologies concurrently.

The company’s cloud-ready NetAct network management system ensures consolidated and effective monitoring, management and optimization of the shared network

Louise Suhr, head of TTN customer team at Nokia Networks, said: “Our ability to manage complex network sharing projects allowed TTN to create Denmark’s best mobile network more rapidly and more efficiently than either partner could have done on its own.”
