Telia, Telenor choose Nokia to operate TT-Netvaerket’s infrastructure

23 Aug 2017

Telenor Denmark and Telia Denmark have signed a managed services contract with Nokia, under which the Finnish equipment vendor will manage their shared mobile networks, which are run by a common infrastructure company TT-Netvaerket. Nokia will take over all operational and development tasks of Telia and Telenor’s common RAN – including planning, optimisation, implementation and operations – in October 2017. The new contract will expand network capacity, ensure a quality boost in the customer experience and pave the way for the introduction of new technologies, the vendor said. TT-Netvaerket’s infrastructure currently comprises more than 4,000 mobile sites around the country.

TeleGeography notes that Telenor Denmark and Telia established TT-Netvaerket in February 2012 and in June that year the infrastructure company was awarded spectrum in the 800MHz band. In December 2014 Telenor and Telia took their network sharing agreement a step further by announcing a plan to merge their Danish businesses in a 50/50 joint venture, though the plan was subsequently abandoned in September 2015 as ‘it was no longer possible’ to gain the EC’s approval.
