Nokia Siemens Networks says that it has won an LTE supply contract from USA based rural mobile network operator, Mosaic Telecom covering its existing 700 MHz and 1700 2100 MHz bands. Mosaic will also improve indoor coverage for its 3G customers by deploying Nokia Siemens Networks' femto base stations.
"Along with improving the 3G experience for our customers, we will start offering complementary LTE data services, thus strengthening our competitive position," said Rick Vergin, chief executive officer of Mosaic Telecom. "The fact that we can reuse existing spectrum assets for the LTE implementation is a huge advantage. Since LTE is a technology adopted worldwide for many paired and unpaired frequency bands, it will also make our service adoption cost effective, convenient and efficient for us."
Under the scope of the deal, Nokia Siemens Networks will supply its Evolved Packed Core solution comprising Flexi NS (Network Server) and Flexi NG (Network Gateway) along with its LTE radio network based on the Flexi Multiradio Base Station.
Nokia Siemens Networks' Value-Added Reseller (VAR), Pario Solutions, will begin deployment in the first quarter of 2011.
