Tele2 will invest in Nokia’s Cloud Packet Core solution in Croatia, followed by Sweden, the Baltic states, Austria, the Netherlands and Kazakhstan.
Finland-based Nokia in a statement said its Cloud Packet Core solution will give Tele2 the scale and performance necessary to support LTE consumer services on a larger scale, and further develop the foundation for 5G.
Tele2 has approximately 16 million subscribers in Europe and Central Asia.
Basil Alwan, president of IP / Optical Networks at Nokia, said: “Tele2 is building out its packet core network to address the growth of consumer mobile broadband and an evolution path to 5G. The cloud-native solution will allow Tele2 to connect a greater number and variety of devices and deliver a broader range of services.”
