The 3GPP compliant architecture of the Nokia MSC Server System allows Telefónica Móviles Perú to gain significant cost saving in the operation of its GSM network, for example, by reducing transmission costs and floor space occupancy. It will also offer an evolution path to future IP networks.

In addition to the core network equipment, Nokia has provided network planning and optimization services, training and operations support for six months. The network is supported by the multivendor, multitechnology Nokia NetAct(TM) network and service management system.

The GSM network is now operational, and Telefónica Móviles Perú has launched their services under the brand movistar Perú. The network deployment was the fastest ever for Telefónica Móviles.

"This agreement reinforces our growing and successful cooperation with Telefónica Móviles in Latin America," says Pentti Tolonen, General Manager, Networks, Nokia. "The Nokia mobile softswitch supports GSM and WCDMA services and offers an easy upgrade to VoIP, making it an ideal solution for Telefónica Móviles Perú."
