Alcatel Lucent has been selected by Togo Cellulaire for an expansion and upgrade of its 2G 3G wireless network. This network extension is a new phase of the multimillion Euro wireless broadband network transformation deal awarded last year by Alcatel Lucent to extend Togo Cellulaire network capacity in GSM and to build the first 3G network in the country.
Alcatel-Lucent will be the sole supplier transforming Togo Cellulaire network with its end-to-end solution that will significantly boost the operator GSM/EDGE network capacity and coverage and raise its 3G network to HPSA+ wireless capability, as well as provide new microwaves links to address the growing demand for advanced mobile high broadband services through an all-IP broadband network.
Since 1998, Alcatel-Lucent became Togo Cellulaire's main supplier with advanced mobile solutions including radio access, core network and applications such as personalized ring back tones, mobile email and billing.
