Build 3G network, provide consulting, and network planning
Under the four-year agreement, Nokia Siemens Networks will build 3G network, provide consulting, network planning and optimisation, training and maintenance service, and civil works support services.
Nokia Siemens Networks will also deploy its Flexi Multiradio Base Station, and replace the existing GSM radio network provided by Vodafone Albania’s previous radio network vendor.
In addition, the Nokia Siemens Networks will use its NetAct management platform for network planning and optimisation.
Vodafone Albania CEO Haris Broumidis said they were pioneering the country’s first 3G services and selected Nokia Siemens Networks because their technical expertise and rapid rollout capabilities were best suited to their needs.
