Nokia and Three Ireland have signed a 5 year managed services contract under which Nokia will manage all of Three Ireland's multi technology, multi vendor radio access network operations.
The agreement is the result of Three Ireland choosing to upgrade the operations of its newly expanded radio access network by working with a single managed service supplier. Nokia will offer a simplified management structure across all equipment, from different vendors, using its innovative network management tools, processes and expertise.
Nokia will also leverage the leading network management expertise of its Global Delivery Center in Lisbon, Portugal. From this central location, Nokia will provide real-time remote support to manage the new consolidated radio network, enabling additional network technologies to be implemented quickly to deliver the highest quality of service for Three Ireland's customers. In addition, Nokia will provide local in-country management to ensure that the customer communication is seamless.
This agreement extends the company's existing network management contract. Nokia will also extend its NetAct operations support system to intelligently capture and process relevant network insights, providing full visibility and advanced network management across the expanded network.
