Nokia Siemens Networks to provide next generation technology to modernize Wataniya's infrastructure
Wataniya Telecom Algerie (WTA) has signed an agreement with Nokia Siemens Networks to modernise its core network.
Nokia Siemens will deploy its 3GPP mobile softswitching solution for the operator, which will help reduce opex and allow WTA to deploy new services more rapidly.
Joseph Ged, CEO for Wataniya Telecom Algerie commented: "Wataniya Telecom Algeria is happy to extend its cooperation with Nokia Siemens Networks by selecting its MSC Server System for our network growth and modernization. The development of our core network is crucial to WTA's future success as our call traffic continues to increase. Implementing Nokia Siemens Networks 3GPP Release 4 architecture will improve our overall network capacity, better utilize network resources and optimize the costs of providing state-of-the-art services to our customers."
"We are pleased to have met Wataniya's demand for a powerful and cost-effective solution to deploy in their network. We look forward to a continued partnership with Wataniya Telecom Algerie, providing world class technology while bringing significant cost savings and a clear evolution in next generation networks," said Mahmud Awad, Wataniya International Cluster Head for Nokia Siemens Networks.
