VMS MobiFone gets Vietnam ready for 3G
|20 ноября 2009|
VMS MobiFone, Vietnam’s leading telecom operator, has shot off the starting blocks in the race to deliver 3G services. The operator has awarded contracts to Nokia Siemens Networks to modernize its network to 3G and implement an IP backbone, so it can handle the expected growth in data traffic and deliver next generation mobile broadband services.
“The 2G market in the country has become extremely competitive over the last few years. To stay ahead of the race, it’s important to offer best-in-class services at competitive prices. We are extremely excited about introducing 3G to Vietnam and offering high speed data services to our users which will give us a significant competitive edge,” said Do Vu Anh, Deputy Director, VMS MobiFone. “Supported by Nokia Siemens Networks’ proven competencies in cost effective and rapid network roll-outs, we are confident of ushering in a new era of connectivity experiences in the country.”
VMS MobiFone has awarded Nokia Siemens Networks the contract for its packet switched core network* and IP backbone. Nokia Siemens Networks will design and maintain the network using its remote delivery capabilities, and upgrade the operator’s existing radio access network to 3G using it energy-efficient Flexi Multiradio Base Station. With this VMS will benefit from a rapid 3G roll out, reduced total cost of ownership and carbon footprint, and a smooth upgrade to future technologies. In addition, Nokia Siemens Networks’ multi-technology NetAct offering will enable the smooth management of the network.
“With eight mobile operators competing in the 2G segment, the average revenue per user has been declining in Vietnam. The launch of 3G will enable VMS MobiFone to introduce new advanced services quickly and efficiently, driving greater usage and increase revenues. This win is testimony to the strong relationship that we share with the customer and of our commitment to helping operators strengthen their customer relationships,” said Krittika Mahattanakul, Head of Asia North, Nokia Siemens Networks.
