Alcatel-Lucent gets femtocell supplier status at Telenor


Alcatel-Lucent has signed a global frame femtocell supply agreement with Telenor — giving it the opportunity to provide the operator with small cell base stations in the 11 countries in which Telenor operates across Scandinavia, Central and Eastern Europe, and Asia.

Alcatel-Lucent will be able to provide its end-to-end Femto-technology based 9360 Small Cell solution, including the 9361 Home Cell, the 9362 Enterprise Cell and the 9366 Small Cell Gateway. The solution includes a network management system which combines Alcatel-Lucent’s Wireless Management System, Wireless Provisioning System and the Home Device Manager from its Motive Product Division. Alcatel-Lucent is providing full deployment and integration services along with design, installation and commissioning, software integration and project management.

Robert Malm, Managing Director of Alcatel-Lucent in the Nordics and Baltics said: “Alcatel-Lucent has a long history of providing service providers such as Telenor with technical innovations and solutions that address their unique needs as well as those of their subscribers. We are pleased to be working hand-in-hand with Telenor to deliver our market-leading Femtocells to enhance mobile broadband speeds and coverage for their customers.

"Our Femtocells and ground-breaking lightRadio product portfolio help service providers as they evolve their networks to meet the growing demand from their customers for mobile data services, and give them opportunities to expand their business into new areas. Our work with Telenor under this agreement also will allow us to jointly explore how our lightRadio Metrocell product can help meet the company’s evolving needs.”
