NSN Wins LTE Deployment Contract in Taiwan

Taiwan’s Chunghwa Telecom has chosen Nokia Solutions and Networks as a supplier to its LTE network, targeting a roll-out in 2014. In addition, the operator extended its existing contract with NSN as sole supplier of its HSPA+ network to further increase the network capacity.

Under the contract, NSN will implement an LTE Radio Access Network with its market-leading Flexi Multiradio Base Stations.  As another part of the radio access deal, NSN will enable voice services for LTE smartphone users with its circuit-switched fallback (CSFB) technology, which allows an LTE handset to “fall back” to the 3G network to complete circuit-switched calls and SMS alongside LTE mobile broadband data services.

NSN will provide its full turnkey solution for network deployment.

Financial terms were not disclosed.
