MobiCom picks Alcatel Lucent to expand 3G reach
Alcatel-Lucent has announced it has been selected by MobiCom, Mongolia’s largest mobile operators by subscribers, to deploy an UMTS/HSPA network to expand the cellco’s existing 3G infrastructure and coverage.
The French vendor will provide MobiCom with its advanced converged radio access network (RAN) portfolio to sustain the rapid increase of voice and data traffic and to enable a smooth transition to Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology.
The solution also includes 3G base stations (eNode Bs), radio network controller, network management system and critical professional services including network installation and testing. ‘This contract highlights our strong partnership with Alcatel-Lucent since the deployment of the 2G GSM/EDGE network,’ noted B. Gansukh, CTO of MobiCom, adding, ‘Alcatel-Lucent’s converged solutions and professional services offer unmatched performance and advanced features, making it the ideal choice as we transform our network to roll out next generation services.’ According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, MobiCom launched its Ericsson-supplied W-CDMA/HSPA network in April 2009 offering subscribers services such as videocalling, mobile TV and high speed internet at download speeds of up to 7.2Mbps. Services were initially launched in Ulaanbaatar but by the end of the year coverage had been expanded to Darhan and Erdenet.
