NSN wins LTE, IMS contracts in Taiwan

Nokia Siemens Networks has won an LTE deal with NTT DoCoMo and an IMS contract with Chunghwa Telecom, the company said.

DoCoMo has contracted Nokia Siemens Networks and Panasonic to supply LTE network equipment. The two vendors will work together on base station products. Panasonic has developed W-CDMA base stations for DoCoMo's FOMA network for more than ten years, it said.

NSN will also supply IMS equipment to Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom in a deal worth EUR21 million ($32.1 million).

It's the first contract from Chunghwa for its five-year NGN plan. NSN will also deliver VoIP and fixed-line softswitch solutions, NSN said.

The vendor has also won a three-year managed services contract from Finnish broadband operator DNA to manage all of its fixed-line operations. Under the agreement, which covers 250,000 subscribers, DNA's fixed line employees will transfer to NSN.
