Oi Brazil taps NSN to modernize 4G, GSM, 3G network

Oi Brazil has selected NSN to modernize network infrastructure for 4G, GSM and 3G services.

The company did not disclose the financial details of network deal.

As part of the mobile broadband deal, Nokia Solutions and Networks will supply the infrastructure for its LTE 4G network. In addition, NSN, which is positioning itself as a mobile broadband specialist, will also upgrade the telecom operator’s GSM and 3G networks in Brazil.

Since the country is going to host World Cup Football in 2014, mobile broadband connectivity is an important tool to find new revenue streams for Oi Brazil.

NSN said it will transform Oi Brasil’s network in several regions to a Single RAN (Single Radio Access Network) system based on its Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station for GSM, 3G and LTE.

As part of the core network, the company will provide its Liquid Core based Evolved Packet Core(EPC) platform.

In addition, NSN will deploy its Subscriber Data Management Platform (SDM) including New Technology Home Location Register (NT-HLR) and One-NDS subscriber data management system for a centralized database repository independent of the application used.
