(C)1994-2006 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD http://www.m2.com
Finnish telecomms solutions provider Nokia said on Thursday (14 September) that it had signed a contract with the French operator SFR for the turnkey supply of the Nokia MSC Server (MSS) mobile softswitch to enhance the operator's network coverage and capacity.
The network modernisation deal upgrades SFR's current circuit switched core network with a Nokia solution that enables fixed mobile convergence and the growth of 3G traffic.
The Nokia MSC Server System, including the Nokia Multimedia Gateway, will enable SFR to manage the demands of its growing traffic while reducing its operational expenditure, according to Nokia.
The turnkey nature of the deal with SFR means that Nokia will manage all activities related to network roll-out from adaptation works on site to integration, re-hosting the radio equipment and operating the network.
Nokia also said that it has now deployed its MSS to over 100 mobile operators worldwide.
No financial information was provided.
