In providing managed services, Nokia takes responsibility for the operation and maintenance as well as customisation of Tusmobil's network, allowing the operator to concentrate on business start-up activities. Nokia will also integrate value added services into Tusmobil's network, and will provide care and training services. The network will be supported by the Nokia NetAct network and service management system.
Nokia will also supply Tusmobil with a GSM/EDGE radio and core network infrastructure including Nokia Flexi EDGE Base Station, Nokia Ultrasite EDGE Base Station, Nokia MSC Server mobile softswitch, Nokia Flexi Intelligent Service Node (ISN), Nokia Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN), and transport network.
Core network and services deliveries have begun, and radio network deliveries are underway. Nokia's new Flexi EDGE Base Station is claimed to enable operators to introduce Nokia's best-in-class radio performance to their networks while minimising site-related costs. Flexi EDGE is the latest variant in the family of Nokia Flexi Base Station products.
