Nokia Siemens Networks has said that Tele2 Sweden is using its Evolved Packet Core (EPC), giving it a common core supporting 4G/LTE, 3G and 2G mobile offerings for mobile data as well as circuit switched voice telephony and IP telephony services.
In addition to providing its EPC, Nokia Siemens Networks has deployed its Subscriber Data Management and Subscriber Repository platforms based on the One-NDS solution, also including HSS (Home Subscriber Server) and EIR (Equipment Identity Register) functionality, which consolidates the subscriber data.
Under the contract, Nokia Siemens Networks is also upgrading the existing core network to support advanced redundancy functions and enable a path towards an all IP network. The contract also encompasses implementation and maintenance services for these systems.
“With smart device users and the demand for data services increasing, Tele2 Sweden was looking to scale up its network,” added Christian Fredrikson, head of sales for Network Systems, Nokia Siemens Networks. “Our EPC prepares the operator for high-speed data services. It also eliminates the need for additional elements in the transport network and achieves an optimized IP-based network architecture that secures the operator’s investments in the long run.”
