Nokia Siemens to supply GSM gear to Unitech in six circles
Advertisement
#1
Nokia Siemens Networks has bagged a multi-million dollar contract from Unitech Wireless to supply GSM network for the company’s mobile operations in six circles that include Gujarat, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Punjab, Jammu & Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh.

Nokia Siemens Networks will also be responsible for network operation and maintenance as a part of the Managed Services contract with the mobile operator.

“We are creating a new global telecom model. We call it the Telco of the Next Decade that leverages existing competencies in the market to drive cost and time efficiencies, superior quality and flexibility that future proofs our operations in a rapidly changing competitive environment. Our partnership with Nokia Siemens Networks will help us pursue our unique model in these six circles as well,” said Mr Stein Erik Vellan, Managing Director, Unitech Wireless.

The network will be built using Nokia Siemens Networks’ Flexi BTS platform, which is the industry’s smallest and energy-efficient mobile base station. It enables service providers to provide coverage to subscribers using a minimal number of base stations, helping them reduce their CO2 footprint and save on energy costs.

The future-proof Flexi BTS platform is 3G and LTE-ready, and thus enables a smooth migration to new technologies. In addition, Nokia Siemens Networks is deploying its mobile softswitching solution, which can bring savings in operating expenses of up to 70 per cent, a press statement said.

Nokia Siemens Networks will also provide its full range of services including consulting and systems integration to provide network design and ensure smooth interworking with Unitech Wireless’ existing infrastructure, care for fault management and managed services for efficient network management.

“India is among the fastest growing telecom markets in the world. Nokia Siemens Networks’ Flexi BTS and Managed Services offerings will allow Unitech Wireless, as a new operator in a competitive market, to reduce its time to market and yet maintain market competitiveness through a more efficient cost base,” said Mr Urs Pennanen, Head of India region, Nokia Siemens Networks.
