Si.mobil, a major Slovenian mobile operator, is expanding its network capacity to allow its subscribers improved access to high-speed data services. Under a five-year contract, Nokia Siemens Networks will implement their optical transport platform, providing installation as well as support and maintenance.
NSN’s dense wavelength division multiplexing optical platform (DWDM) offers a high capacity, optical transport backbone which will allow Si.mobil to improve network reliability and scalability at lower costs. It is also a modular platform, allowing for upgrades in response to customer demands.
“We wanted to prepare our network to maintain a competitive edge by providing the best services while preparing for the anticipated growth in data traffic,” said Horst Pertl, CTO of Si.mobil. “NSN’s scalable optical networks fit our requirements perfectly. Its track record in rapid and cost-effective roll-outs made it easy for us to select its optical transport platform.”
In addition to the DWDM optical solution, Nokia Siemens Networks leading network management system suite already in use by Si.mobil will be used to optimize the network’s operations through centralized control and supervision.
