Nokia Siemens Networks provides 7,000 LTE base stations to Telecom Italia
Nokia Siemens Networks will modernize Telecom Italia’s mobile infrastructure in several Italian regions with 7,000 base stations (BTS) able to offer 4G (LTE) mobile services. The Long Term Evolution (LTE)* technology has already been tested** by the two companies in some Turin city areas.
“This network modernization will enable exceptional voice quality and data speeds in addition to optimizing the performance and supporting the strong increase of smartphones,” said Massimo Mazzocchini, head of Telecom Italia customer team at Nokia Siemens Networks. “This technology will be able to offer a throughput of more than 140 megabits per second (Mbps) per cell with a latency of only 10 milliseconds, demonstrating the true value of a modern network for driving the growth of Italy’s economy.”
Nokia Siemens Networks will undertake the radio network modernization in some Italian regions in the 900-1800 and 2100 MHz frequency bands, supplying its future-proof single Radio Access Network*** Flexi Multiradio Base Stations. These base stations allow smooth implementation of LTE in the 2.6 GHz and 800 MHz bands.
With this implementation, subscribers of Telecom Italia will be able to enjoy advanced mobile broadband services including high-quality video calls, High Definition (HD) streaming and mobile gaming.
The radio network modernization will be implemented in some of the most developed, industrialized and economically vital Italian regions, including Veneto, Trentino Alto Adige, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Emilia Romagna, Marche and Umbria to further contribute to the country’s economy.
