Telef nica Spain has undertaken a 3G network expansion which included extending its service reach by more than 25% in dense urban areas. The expansion, which will also improve energy efficiency and reduce environmental impact, has been carried out by Nokia Siemens Networks.
"The Spanish telecom market is incredibly competitive, and to stay ahead we need to roll out new and improved services rapidly, while expanding our reach across the country. To achieve those goals we needed first class network implementation capabilities and innovative thinking, and that's why we chose Nokia Siemens Networks," said Carlos Calvo, Head of Technology, Operations & Systems at Telefónica Spain. "That's not all though. As a responsible corporate citizen, we are committed to doing our bit for the environment, and for us an ideal solution is one that takes all of these factors into account."
Nokia Siemens Networks managed to carry out this very ambitious network implementation for Telefónica under a tight deadline.
Nokia Siemens Networks also provided its network and service management solution for monitoring, controlling, analyzing and managing the Telefónica network. Pentti Tolonen, Head of Customer Team Telefónica Spain at Nokia Siemens Networks said, "This project proudly allowed us to be true partners in our customer success. Nokia Siemens Networks was capable of combining the renewal of the currently installed radio base, and continuing simultaneously with the ongoing natural expansion of the 3G network, without compromising and even improving the quality of service perceived by Telefónica's end users".
