Telenor to use Alcatel-Lucent's Femto solution
To deliver high quality mobile broadband voice and data services, telecommunications service provider Telenor has selected small cells technology from Alcatel-Lucent. Under a new global frame agreement, Alcatel-Lucent will provide Telenor with small cell base stations to support its customers. These small cells could be used in the 11 countries in which Telenor operates across Scandinavia, Central and Eastern Europe, and Asia.
As required by Telenor under the agreement Alcatel-Lucent will 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.
“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,” said Robert Malm, Managing Director of Alcatel-Lucent in the Nordics and Baltics.
