Cellcard to deploy nationwide LTE network by April

2 Feb 2017

Ian Watson, CEO of Cambodian mobile operator CamGSM (which provides services under the brand name Cellcard), has revealed that his company is aiming to deploy a nationwide 4G LTE service by April this year, The Cambodia Daily writes. The executive was cited as saying that the USD150 million project will see the 4G network extended even to the most remote regions of the country.

As reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, last week CamGSM selected Finnish equipment vendor Nokia for the modernisation and expansion of its 3G and 4G networks. The cellco initially launched LTE services in November 2015, with expansion to other locations following shortly after, and Nokia says it will deploy around 1,500 additional sites to extend 4G coverage in other provinces and rural areas. The vendor will provide its Global Services and Single RAN technology to enable CamGSM to host simultaneous 2G/3G/4G operations on a single platform, as well as deploy IP edge routers from Nokia’s 7750 Service Router (SR) portfolio.
