Alcatel-Lucent has announced that it has been awarded a contract to expand the GSM mobile network of Celcom, a Malaysian telecommunications service provider.
Under the terms of the agreement, Alcatel-Lucent will deliver its GSM/GPRS/EDGE solutions. This solution includes the Twin TRX, a recent addition to the Alcatel-Lucent portfolio that doubles base-station capacity to meet the requirements of users in high-density urban environments and offers a wider coverage range making it well suited for less populated rural environments. The Twin TRX also reduces power consumption by up to 30%.
Frederic Rose, president of Alcatel-Lucent’s business in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific, said: Our deeply committed team is leveraging our comprehensive wireless portfolio and depth of expertise to continue to provide Celcom with the most innovative solutions in the industry to help enhance the variety and quality of services the mobile operator can provide to its subscribers.
