Brazilian operator Oi Brasil has selected Nokia Solutions and Networks to supply the infrastructure for its LTE network.
NSN will also upgrade the operator’s GSM and 3G networks across the country, allowing subscribers access to a host of high-speed mobile broadband services.
Oi Brasil’s 4G network will offer a whole new range of data services and applications, enabling its users to enjoy a significantly better mobile broadband experience, especially in regions with higher mobile broadband demand.
Under the contract, NSN will transform Oi Brasil’s network in several regions to a Single RAN (Single Radio Access Network) system based on its Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station for GSM, 3G and LTE.
In addition, NSN will also deploy its Subscriber Data Management Platform (SDM) including New Technology Home Location Register (NT-HLR) and One-NDS subscriber data management system for a centralised database repository independent of the application used.
The scope of the deal also includes network planning and optimisation, systems integration and care services, including hardware and software services.
