Mobile network operator Vodacom Tanzania has deployed Nokia Solutions and Networks’ (NSN’s) Single RAN (radio access network) as an overlay on its 2G and 3G/HSPA networks in the country, to boost voice call quality and provide faster data services. Further, the tie-up with NSN means that the carrier will be able to further improve its network capacity and coverage, it said. Under the terms of the contract award, the Finnish-based vendor supplied Vodacom Tanzania with a Single RAN platform built around its Flexi Multiradio base station solution. Flexi Multiradio can handle GSM and 3G services concurrently and is future-proofed in that it is also capable of running 4G/LTE services. Finally, NSN also installed its NetAct network management system to enable consolidated monitoring, management and operation of the cellco’s network.
