NSN boosts state cellco’s coverage, capacity

6 Oct 2008

Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) has signed a contract with Bangladesh’s Teletalk to boost the state-run cellco’s GSM coverage in Dhaka and double its subscriber capacity. NSN will build out capacity for Teletalk with the modernisation of its core network, including mobile softswitching, packet core, and Home Location Register (HLR). According to the vendor’s press release, the Release 4 architecture of its MSC Server softswitching will enable Teletalk to accelerate the deployment of new, converged wireless services, while optimising costs. The supply deal is NSN’s first in Bangladesh for its mobile softswitching. NSN will also deploy base transceiver stations (BTSs) to add additional network capacity to Teletalk’s network, particularly in the capital, and roll out its network and service management solution, NetAct, to improve network operational efficiency.
