Manages approximately 87,000 base station sites
Nokia Siemens Networks has relocated and expanded its Global Network Solutions Center (GNSC) to a new site in Chennai, India.
The new GNSC occupies 90,000sq ft area and now remotely manages approximately 87,000 base station sites.
The Chennai GNSC provides remote delivery support across its services businesses including care, network implementation, managed services, optimisation services and complete network operation.
The company said that its integrated, multi-technology, multi-vendor GNSCs are designed to ensure high network and service performance through transparent Service Level Agreements and improved service delivery efficiency while reducing risks.
The new GNSC is its one of three currently operating GNSCs, with two others in Noida, India; and Lisbon, Portugal. Two further service delivery centres are currently being established in Russia and Brazil as announced in 2010.
Nokia Siemens Networks head of global services Armando Almeida said the Chennai facility, with its vast engineering and telecom talent, has played a significant role in the success of their alternative service delivery model.
"This model allows us to centralise and consolidate operations for customers around the world and provides significant cost savings and improved operational efficiency, freeing up resources to allow operators to focus on their business goals," Almeida said.
