Ooredoo to launch 3G services in Myanmar

Ooredoo Myanmar will introduce 3G mobile services nationwide in Myanmar next year.

To achieve this, the operator has selected Nokia Solutions and Networks as the key supplier for its radio and core equipment and services. Ooredoo’s subscribers in Myanmar will soon have access to advanced mobile broadband services.

“This initiative underlines our commitment to deliver world-class communications services to our customers in Myanmar, who will soon enjoy a great customer experience with our network,” said Ross Cormack, Chief Executive Officer at Ooredoo Myanmar.

Under the two-year agreement, NSN will build a complete 3G radio access network (RAN) on the 900 MHz and 2100 MHz bands based on its compact and energy-effecient Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station and Multicontroller Radio Network Controller (mcRNC). These high-capacity and flexible platforms will provide great coverage and capacity for Ooredoo Myanmar, enabling it to roll out new services fast and efficiently while managing its rapidly increasing traffic growth.

NSN will also provide its NetAct management system to ensure consolidated configuration, monitoring and network optimisation for Ooredoo Myanmar’s 3G network. Furthermore, the company will provide its CEM on Demand and Serve atOnce Traffica to provide insights into the customer experience. 

The scope of the deal includes network implementation, planning and optimisation, systems integration and care services including hardware, software and competence development services.

Paul Tyler, Senior Vice President of Asia Pacific at NSN, said: “As Ooredoo Myanmar’s partner, we will leverage our expertise to build a network that will enable exciting new services for customers in Myanmar. Together with Ooredoo Myanmar, we will facilitate the evolution of the country’s communications industry.”
