Modernised network will improve HD Voice & Data speeds in Armenia

Orange Armenia has successfully modernised its network, providing high definition (HD) voice services on the whole network across Armenia, and delivering up to 14.4 megabits per second (Mbps) data speeds in main cities. Nokia Siemens Networks is the key supplier to Orange Armenia for its core and access network, providing innovations such as HD voice and High Speed Packet Access (HSPA).

In July this year, Orange introduced HD voice services using the Wideband AMR technology, becoming only the second service provider in the world, and the first in Armenia and the region to do so. Orange is also the first operator in Armenia to offer full solution of 14.4 Mbps services with upgraded network, available modems and commercial offer.

“It is our endeavor to introduce innovative, high quality broadband services. We are proud to be the first in Armenia to make available these innovations to our customers,” said Bruno Duthoit, CEO, Orange Armenia.

“Competition in Armenia’s telecom market has intensified with the entry of Orange Armenia and consumers are already reaping its benefits,” added Frederic Castano, customer team head at Nokia Siemens Networks. “We are committed to supporting the operator in rolling out advanced services at lower cost of ownership. At the same time, we are ensuring that Orange Armenia’s network is equipped to handle growth to provide a consistent high quality experience to its users and gets ready for the next generation mobile broadband services.”

The two companies are already considering implementing next steps of innovative services in the framework of the strong partnership.
