Alcatel-Lucent Signs Supply Agreement for Telenor's 4G Networks

Published on:

Alcatel Lucent has signed a global frame agreement with Telenor Group, making Alcatel Lucent a candidate provider for LTE networks to the subsidiaries in 13 countries in Europe and Asia.

The agreement offers Telenor subsidiaries Alcatel-Lucent's LTE Overlay solution as an alternative to single RAN deployment.

No actual contracts have been signed, this is just an agreement to use Alcatel-Lucent equipment in the future.

Alcatel-Lucent said that its LTE overlay network technology offers an option to Telenor's subsidiaries to have 4G LTE mobile networks up and running faster and more efficiently than following a slower migration process traditionally followed by operators.

Included in the scope of the agreement are Alcatel-Lucent's 4G LTE Radio Access Network and the 5620 Service Aware Manager

Luis Martinez Amago, President Europe, Middle East and Africa of Alcatel-Lucent said: "The agreement clears the path for us to enter negotiations on our 4G LTE overlay solution with Telenor's subsidiaries throughout Europe and Asia, and follows a number of other major agreements we have made with Telenor over the last few years which have included small cells, IP transport and mobile video product solutions."
