    Nokia MSC Server System deployed in volumes


    Nokia is first with 3GPP Release 4 architecture for voice in 2G and 3G networks.

    The Nokia MSC Server System, Nokia’s new voice core network for 2G and 3G, has reached the volume delivery stage, and volume deployments of the solution are taking place worldwide.

    The MSC Server System brings operators significant savings in the delivery of voice minutes by reducing the cost of building and operating mobile networks. The system is already used for live commercial voice traffic by leading operators in Europe and Asia-Pacific.
    Nokia is the first vendor to provide a 3GPP Release 4 compliant MSC Server System that fully handles GSM/EDGE and WCDMA services in the same network elements, which means that migration to combined GSM/WCDMA networks can be accomplished cost-efficiently. Nokia’s solution is also fully backwards compatible with GSM/EDGE and Release 99 WCDMA specifications and interfaces.
    “The Nokia MSC Server System is a perfect solution for core network optimization, bringing significant cost-savings for operators. At the same time, it offers long-term investment protection, and will play an important role in networks compliant with 3GPP Release 5, Release 6 and Release 7 specifications,” says Juha Äkräs, Senior Vice President, Core Networks, Networks, Nokia.
    The Nokia MSC Server System allows operators to concentrate call control to larger centers, while distributing switching functions to locations close to traffic hot spots. It also enables a safe and standardized way to implement carrier-grade Voice over IP (VoIP) service in mobile networks. The MSC Server System brings considerable savings in operating expenditure for voice in both 2G and 3G networks, and enables significant cost-efficiencies also to operators with a pure GSM/EDGE circuit core network using TDM point-to-point connections.
