Idea Goes With Nokia For 4G Deployment Across India

Idea Cellular has selected Nokia for its 4G roll-out in three key regional circles — Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Haryana.

Nokia will now supply Single RAN technology that can simultaneously run 2G, 3G and 4G services. The Finnish telecom vendor will also assist Idea Cellular in modernization and expansion of network and will provide operational support, along with professional services for network deployment, network planning and optimization, system integration and supervisory managed services support.

Commenting on the partnership, Himanshu Kapania, Managing Director, Idea Cellular, said, “We were looking for a solution which can support multiple radio technologies simultaneously on a single platform. We found it in Nokia’s Single RAN solution, complimented by its energy-efficient and flexible site solutions. Our excellent partnership with Nokia now enters a new phase as we launch 4G LTE services to bring a superior experience to our customers.”

“As Idea Cellular’s preferred technology partner in 2G, 3G, and now in 4G, we will continue to support them by providing new technologies and capabilities for superior network quality. Nokia’s global experience in deploying 4G LTE networks will enable Idea Cellular to deliver an enhanced customer experience across its circles,” Sandeep Girotra, head of India Market, Nokia added.
