Nokia secures W-CDMA contract with Indonesian carrier

Nokia and Indonesian operator Telkomsel have signed a three-year W-CDMA 3G radio and core network and managed services contract.

In a statement, Nokia said it would support Telkomsel in its business and introduce 3G services, such as streaming video.

Nokia would operate Telkomsel's multi-vendor W-CDMA 3G network, which would be supported by the Nokia Netact network and service management system, Nokia said.

In addition, Nokia would provide network planning, implementation, multi-vendor integration and delivery services with turnkey responsibility.

Under the agreement, Nokia would supply Telkomsel with radio solutions, including modular, high-capacity base stations and high-speed packet access software.

The 3G network and managed services contracts cover Greater Jakarta, and West and Central Java, the most densely populated areas in Indonesia, Nokia said.
