Telenor selects Nokia for radio access equipment for modernising network

NEW DELHI: The Telenor Group has selected Nokia as a candidate supplier for radio access equipment and professional services over a period of five years.


The operator is modernising its existing 2G and 3G networks and continuing to deploy LTE across Europe and Asia.


However, both Telenor and Nokia refused to spell out details of the financial deal.


"We continue to invest in the modernisation of our network to provide excellent end-user experience as part of our vision of internet for all," said Telenor Group EVP, group industrial development Hilde Tonne. "For this important radio access technology area, we have selected Nokia as a partner due to our excellent working relationship and the company's proven expertise in mobile broadband and services."


"This project is another important milestone in our long-standing collaboration with Telenor Group which dates back to the 1990s, and we are currently supplier to several of Telenor's business units across Europe and Asia," said Nokia EVP Europe and Latin America René Svendsen Tune. "We are committed to support Telenor in developing a high-capacity mobile broadband infrastructure that will meet its subscribers' needs today and tomorrow as well as those of new markets."


Nokia is a leader in mobile broadband, having the most 3G references and supplying LTE in the most advanced markets on the globe. The company's single RAN advanced, based on the compact, scalable Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station, runs different technologies on a single hardware platform to simplify macro radio networks, enabling the fastest rollouts and saving site costs significantly. Its NetAct operation support system provides comprehensive and consolidated management for all communications networks, and all of Nokia's solutions are supported by its full range of global services.
