A leading operator in Iraq is preparing to launch high-speed mobile broadband via a network expansion which will also improve coverage and call quality. Korek Telecom is using Nokia Siemens Networks’ advanced radio, microwave transmission and packet core network elements for the deployment.
“We wanted to provide better internet experience and improved voice call services for our customers in Iraq,” said Ghada Gebara, Chief Executive Officer, Korek Telecom. “With Nokia Siemens Networks’ advanced radio and core network technology, we will soon be able to introduce high-speed mobile broadband and enhanced voice services to our customers in southern Iraq.”
Mikko Ylä-Kauttu, head of customer team Korek Telecom at Nokia Siemens Networks, said: “Our radio and core network will ensure more throughput, improved coverage and higher quality to help Korek Telecom satisfy existing customers and attract new ones. In addition, our comprehensive services will ensure the rollout is fast and efficient, with everything working seamlessly.”
Under the contract, Nokia Siemens Networks provides Korek Telecom with its Flexi Direct that simplifies network planning, lowers capital and operating costs for operators, and reduces data transmission delay, thus ensuring high-speed broadband for end users. Its Intelligent Packet Core enables service-aware charging functionality so that Korek Telecom can provide stable access to various data service plans, and a security solution that safeguards the data content.
