NSN Wins LTE Deployment Contract in Taiwan
Published on: 16th Dec 2013
Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom has chosen Nokia Solutions and Networks as a supplier to its LTE network targeting a roll out in 2014. In addition the operator extended its existing contract with NSN as sole supplier of its HSPA network to further increase the network capacity.
Under the contract, NSN will implement an LTE Radio Access Network with its market-leading Flexi Multiradio Base Stations. As another part of the radio access deal, NSN will enable voice services for LTE smartphone users with its circuit-switched fallback (CSFB) technology, which allows an LTE handset to "fall back" to the 3G network to complete circuit-switched calls and SMS alongside LTE mobile broadband data services.
NSN will provide its full turnkey solution for network deployment.
