|Nokia Siemens Networks to upgrade the mobile network of the E-Plus Group|
|Thursday, 06 March 2008|
Nokia Siemens Networks and Germany's mobile operator E-Plus Group have extended their frame cooperation to cover an expansion and upgrade of the E-Plus 3G radio network until 2010. The upgrade will allow the operator to increase network capacity and to offer new, high-quality services to its customers.
Nokia Siemens Networks will expand E-Plus' radio access network by means of its market-leading Flexi Base Stations, according to the recently approved letter of intent. Nokia Siemens Networks also will provide the E-Plus Group with its microwave transmission equipment for the transport network.
Nokia Siemens Networks Flexi Base Station is the industry's smallest and most efficient multi-technology radio access platform with a unique modular design and architecture, supporting different radio standards. At the E-Plus Group, it will be used for the expansion of the network using GSM and WCDMA (Wideband Code-Division Multiplex Access) technologies.
The energy efficiency of the Flexi Base Station underpins Nokia Siemens Networks' commitment to environmentally sustainable solutions for radio access networks. The platform is also ready for upgrades to future radio standards and a maximum use of the existing modules, which enables a maximum of investment protection.
"The E-Plus Group is a very significant and one of the most important customers for Nokia Siemens Networks in Europe," said Hartmut Mueller-Leitloff, a regional head at Nokia Siemens Networks. "The continuation of such kind of cooperation allows us to understand perfectly our customers’ needs and to respond to their requirements with tailored, state-of-the-art solutions."
