Nokia completes T-Mobile/tele.ring integration

19 Dec 2007

Nokia Siemens Networks has completed the integration of the cellular networks of T-Mobile Austria and tele.ring, the rival cellco it acquired last year. The seamless network unification and expansion took four months to complete and was conducted with both the T-Mobile and tele.ring networks running live at all times. 1,300 2G base stations were upgraded, the equipment vendor says. The result is a fully upgraded single physical network which now serves around three million users.
