5 Sep 2013

Tele2 has announced the results of its network procurement for its 4G deployment in the Netherlands. Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN) has been selected for Radio Access Network (RAN) equipment, Huawei for core equipment and Mavenir Systems for IMS equipment. The cellco says it has already begun building the network locations, and purchase orders with the vendors have been placed. Gunther Vogelpoel, EVP and CEO Tele2 Netherlands, commented: ‘The completed procurement, in combination with the recently announced site sharing and [Mobile Virtual Network Operator] MVNO agreements, puts Tele2 in the right position to continue to challenge the players on the Dutch market. With this setting, we will roll out a very strong 4G network whilst being highly cost efficient.’
