    T-2 Slovenia chooses Nokia Siemens Networks as a supplier of next-generation mobile network


    Nokia Siemens Networks is supplying T-2 Slovenia, the country's leading IPTV and Internet service alternative provider, with a high-speed mobile network that will allow the operator to offer new 'top-quality' multimedia and data services.

    The deal marks the first commercial implementation in Europe of a pioneering Internet High Speed Packet Access (I-HSPA) flat architecture solution from Nokia Siemens Networks.

    Also, with the current project, T-2 entered the mobile telecommunication market with a plan to expand its present customer base and attract new users.

    Nokia Siemens Networks will set up a complete 3G network based on Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) technology, with a full range of solutions that allow data transfers at very high speeds in both directions – to the user and from the user.

    The project is already in a "friendly user phase," with about 1,000 subscribers taking part in the trial.

    Included in the deal is the MSC Server mobile softswitching solution with VoIP server functionality, as well as the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), which will enable T2 Slovenia to introduce new IP-based voice and multimedia services. The contract also covers planning and implementation services, a top-of-the-class network and service management system as well as the actual operation of the network by Nokia Siemens Networks.

    The system features the Internet Protocol-based solution called Internet-HSPA, the new technological milestone pioneered by Nokia Siemens Networks and designed for heavy data and rich multimedia usage over the wireless network. Thanks to its simplified flat architecture, the new network is ready to offer the end user a full mobility of data services, improved multimedia, gaming, web browsing and email service experience.

    "We at T-2 have been firmly committed to delivering top quality IP-based services to our customers," said Matevz Turk, T-2 CEO. "Thanks to Nokia Siemens Networks and their innovative flat-architecture network solutions we are able to move into a new field and offer new outstanding mobile services to our subscribers".

    "We are very proud to announce the first commercial implementation of Nokia Siemens Networks Internet HSPA solution in Europe," said Hans-Jürgen Bill, Head of the West South Europe region at Nokia Siemens Networks. "This landmark project with T-2 Slovenia is another proof of our leading position among telecommunications solution and infrastructure vendors for the mobile market in Slovenia as well as all of Europe."
