Tele2 to roll out LTE in Baltics
|26 апреля 2012|
Tele2 plans to launch LTE in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in the near future, having contracted Nokia Siemens Networks as its sole supplier of network equipment."With increased adoption of smart devices and demand for high-speed data services, we want to build LTE networks in the Baltics," said Niklas Sonkin, Central Europe and Eurasia market area director at Tele2, in a statement on Wednesday.
"With [Nokia Siemens Networks'] Single RAN, we will soon be able to launch LTE services, efficiently utilizing different frequency bands," he added, without specifying in which bands Tele2 plans to roll out the technology.
Under the terms of the deal, Nokia Siemens will provide core and radio network equipment for LTE, and will also help modernise and expand Tele2's GSM and 3G networks.
"Our Liquid Core platform will help Tele2 intelligently manage its network traffic in real time and provide the best user experience across the three countries," said Armando Almeida, head of Europe and Africa customers at Nokia Siemens Networks.
Liquid Core forms part of the vendor's Liquid Net portfolio, which is designed to give operators more flexibility when it comes to addressing capacity requirements on their networks.
"It's critical for operators such as Tele2 to upgrade their existing networks with future proof technologies to save equipment and operational costs today and tomorrow," Almeida said.
Sweden-based Tele2 has operations in 11 countries serving 35 million customers. It generated revenues of SEK10.48 billion (€1.2 billion) in the first quarter of 2012 and posted SEK2.57 billion (€285 million) in EBITDA.
