Nokia Siemens Networks is the sole supplier of end-to-end network

Nokia Siemens Networks has been selected by DOCOMO PACIFIC, a subsidiary of the Japanese telecommunications operator NTT DOCOMO, as the sole supplier for an end-to-end 4G LTE* network. The network has enabled DOCOMO PACIFIC to provide a stronger mobile data offering for existing customers on the U.S. territory of Guam.

The LTE deployment is an extension of Nokia Siemens Networks’ successful relationship with DOCOMO PACIFIC. Nokia Siemens Networks implemented the operator’s GSM/EDGE network, the 3G network and, most recently, the HSPA+ upgrade in 2011.

“The HSPA+ and LTE complementary technologies assure faster mobile broadband speed throughout Guam even as the subscribers move in and out of LTE coverage,” said Jay Shedd, president and chief executive officer at DOCOMO PACIFIC. “With the LTE implementation, we offer the largest and most up-to-date selection of 4G LTE devices on Guam. And subscribers can now connect to a much wider array of devices for higher-quality video and new applications.”

Nokia Siemens Networks implemented its energy-efficient Single Radio Access Network (RAN) solution with high-capacity Flexi Multiradio Base Stations. As part of the contract, Nokia Siemens Networks also upgraded its NetAct network management system to enable consolidated and effective monitoring, management and optimization of DOCOMO PACIFIC’s network across all radio technologies.

“Launching LTE for DOCOMO PACIFIC subscribers was of critical importance in the Guam market,” said J.P. Takala, head of Japan Region, Nokia Siemens Networks. “The implementation helped DOCOMO PACIFIC to transform access to mobile broadband with LTE technology.”
