Nokia has won a contract to supply 4G equipment to Vodafone Idea Ltd across its multiple service areas. Nokia said these deployments will enable Vodafone Idea (VIL) subscribers to enjoy higher-bandwidth applications and services.
“Vodafone Idea is undertaking the world’s biggest telecom network integration in India and creating India’s most advanced, secure and cost-efficient network,” Vishant Vora, chief technology officer at Vodafone Idea, said. “Extensive use of UBRs, DSRs, m-MIMOs, and HetNets are key to our plan in this integration exercise.”
Sanjay Malik, head of India at Nokia said, “their (VIL) subscribers will experience a much-improved mobile broadband network and will be able to enjoy high-bandwidth consuming applications and services.”
Vodafone Idea is also deploying dynamic spectrum sharing (DSR) to make the most productive use of spectrum and is extensively utilizing UBR radios to further lower operational expenses per site and ease the deployment challenges.
