TTSL teams up with Nokia Siemens Networks
Partnership to focus on Tata Teleservices' pan-India GSM network rollout
Commenting on the partnership with Nokia Siemens Networks, Mr Anil Sardana, Managing Director, Tata Teleservices Limited, said: ""As we gear up for our GSM launch, the need of the hour is to provide quick time-to-market services that ensure better network quality and uptime. In keeping with this mission, we feel suitably aligned to Nokia Siemens Networks, which, with its massive services set-up in the country, can provide us the required support."
Backed by experience of more than 200 managed services contracts worldwide serving a subscriber base in excess of 190 million, not to mention its global delivery capabilities, Nokia Siemens Networks is ideally suited to launch TTSL's GSM services seamlessly and in a quick and efficient manner. In addition to its proven services record, Nokia Siemens Networks was selected on the basis of its mobile softswitching solution, its Home Location Register, based on its advanced Subscriber Data Management platform and the market leading energy-efficient Flexi Base Station. Underscoring its faith in Nokia Siemens Networks, TTSL will also deploy the company's packet core solution, including the Flexi Intelligent Service Node, for all 22 circles in the country, enabling it to offer ubiquitous mobile Internet access across subscriber segments.
Mr Michael Kuehner, Head for Nokia Siemens Networks, Sub-region India, said: "It is always greatly satisfying when we sign up a new customer, but this partnership with TTSL is all the more special for us. Not only does this partnership allow us to work with one of the most prestigious names in Indian corporate history, but being selected for TTSL's GSM launch also considerably strengthens our dominance across the Indian telecom landscape. We are honored with the trust they have placed in us and will surely live up to their expectations."
Nokia Siemens Networks will be responsible for GSM services across a majority of TTSL's 22 telecom Circles in India.
