New Delhi: Telecom operator Tata Docomo has tied up with Nokia Networks to modernize and expand its 3G network.
The operator has modernized its 3G network based on Nokia Networks’ Single RAN (radio access network) product and services.
“With its extensive knowledge about our infrastructure and expertise in executing similar deployments worldwide and more specifically in India, Nokia Networks was our natural choice for this project. We are working together to be leaders in harnessing the potential of the data services market in the country,” Neeraj Dindore, Chief Technology Officer of Tata Docomo.
“We have committed our resources and technology to ensure a rapid expansion of TATA DOCOMO’s network,” said Sandeep Girotra, head of India region at Nokia Networks. “This contract strengthens our long-standing partnership with the operator and Tata Docomo’s endeavor to become the operator-of-choice in India.”
Nokia Networks’ solution for Tata Docomo is comprised of its compact and energy-efficient Flexi Multiradio Base Station featuring HSPA+( High-Speed Packet Access) technology and Radio Network Controllers. To enhance capacity and provide the best coverage in densely crowded areas, Nokia Networks will extend the macro network by supplying its Flexi Lite Base Stations, small all-in-one base stations optimized for indoor and outdoor micro-cell deployments, a statement said.
The solution also includes Nokia’s NetAct network management system for effective monitoring and management of Tata Docomo’s networks. And, to ensure a smooth network roll out, the project scope includes network planning and optimization and project management services as well as hardware and software services, a statement said.
