Teletalk Bangladesh Ltd, the state-owned mobile operator, is to double its subscriber capacity after agreeing a network expansion project with Nokia Siemens Networks that will enhance its existing network coverage and provide mobile customers advanced wireless services in a cost efficient manner.

Nokia Siemens Networks will build out capacity for Teletalk with the modernisation of its core network, including mobile softswitching, packet core, and Home Location Register (HLR). The Release 4 architecture of the MSC Server softswitching will enable Teletalk to accelerate the deployment of new, converged wireless services, while optimizing costs. This marks the first supply deal in Bangladesh for the Nokia Siemens Networks' mobile softswitching.

Further, Nokia Siemens Networks will deploy base transceiver stations (BTS) to build additional network capacity to Teletalk's GSM network, particularly in the capital city of Dhaka and roll out its network and service management solution, NetAct to improve network operational efficiency.

Says Mujibur Rahman, Managing Director Teletalk, "We have a commitment to the people of Bangladesh to provide them with state of the art services. Thus as we planned our new phase of expansion, we decided to work with Nokia Siemens Networks to transform our core network to facilitate this. We are confident that this deal will allow us to develop our subscriber base and to offer exciting new services to all customers."

Adds Ricky Corker, Head of Asia North Sub-region, Nokia Siemens Networks, "The deal with Teletalk is especially significant for us as we will enjoy the full scope of the core network in the Bangladesh market. Given our expertise in core network solution deployments and the technology leadership we enjoy, we are confident of facilitating innovative multimedia mobile services that will exceed Teletalk's customers' expectations."

Nokia Siemens Networks has an unparalleled track record in core network solutions, with close to 200 customers for its mobile softswitching solutions, including over 120 live deployments, as well as 230 customers for its packet core solution for 2G and over 90 for 3G.
