Tata Teleservices Limited (TTSL) has tied up with Nokia Siemens Networks for its pan-India GSM network rollout. Under the terms of the partnership, Nokia Siemens Networks has been identified as one of the main vendors that will manage the operations of the networks it deploys over a period of five years.

Managed services forms just one portion of the vast scope of the deal — the complete services outlay includes local supplies, network planning, project management, network roll-out and systems integration activities across the national network.

Commenting on the tie-up, Anil Sardana, Managing Director, Tata Teleservices Limited, said, “As we gear up for our GSM launch, the need of the hour is to provide quick time-to-market services that ensure better network quality and uptime. In keeping with this mission, we feel suitably aligned to Nokia Siemens Networks, which with its massive services set-up in the country, can provide us the required support.”

Nokia Siemens Networks is said to have been selected on the basis of its mobile softswitching solution, its Home Location Register, its advanced Subscriber Data Management platform and the energy-efficient Flexi Base Station. Underscoring its faith in Nokia Siemens Networks, TTSL will also deploy the company’s packet core solution, including the Flexi Intelligent Service Node, for all 22 circles in the country, enabling it to offer mobile Internet access across subscriber segments.

According to Michael Kuehner, Head: Nokia Siemens Networks, sub-region India, “Not only does this partnership allow us to work with one of the most prestigious names in Indian corporate history, but being selected for TTSL’s GSM launch also considerably strengthens our dominance across the Indian telecom landscape.”

Nokia Siemens Networks will be responsible for GSM services across a majority of TTSL’s 22 telecom circles in India.
