LTE-ready Flexi Multiradio Base Station to support enhanced High Speed Packet Access (HSPA+) services
SFR, a French mobile firm, has selected Nokia Siemens Networks to build extra capacity in its existing 3G network.
Nokia Siemens Networks will provide its LTE-ready Flexi Multiradio Base Station to support enhanced High Speed Packet Access (HSPA+) services.
The offering will also include an array of software, network planning and optimisation to ensure high network availability.
The collaboration will enable SFR customers to access Nokia Siemens Networks’ Dual-cell HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) technology, which provides up to 42 Mbps download speeds, twice the current peak rate.
Nokia Siemens Networks’ Dual-cell HSDPA technology doubles the peak download rate and increases the network capacity, allowing larger number of users to enjoy higher download speeds.
Nokia Siemens Networks head of SFR customer team Ana Maria Gimenez said the ongoing network upgrade will provide a competitive edge to SFR by significantly enhancing the mobile Internet quality of experience across France.
