Tele2 Sweden makes seamless transition to LTE
Espoo, Finland - Nokia Siemens Networks has established a common core network for GSM, 3G and LTE
Subscribers of Tele2 Sweden now enjoy faster access to a wide range of high-quality voice, data and real time multimedia services. Tele2 is using Nokia Siemens Networks Evolved Packet Core (EPC) in their launch of Long Term Evolution (LTE)* technology, providing faster mobile broadband.
Nokia Siemens Networks’ Evolved Packet Core (EPC)** is the LTE Core solution supporting Tele2’s LTE services in Sweden. Through the introduction of EPC into the Tele2 Sweden Core environment, Tele2 now has a common Nokia Siemens Networks Core solution supporting 4G/LTE, 3G and 2G mobile offerings for mobile data as well as traditional circuit switched voice telephony and IP telephony services.
In addition to providing its EPC, Nokia Siemens Networks has deployed its market leading Subscriber Data Management and Subscriber Repository platforms based on the One-NDS solution, also including HSS (Home Subscriber Server) and EIR (Equipment Identity Register) functionality, which consolidates the subscriber data.
Under the contract, Nokia Siemens Networks is also upgrading the existing core network to support advanced redundancy functions and enable a clear path towards an all IP network. The contract also encompasses implementation and maintenance services for these systems.
“With smart device users and the demand for data services increasing, Tele2 Sweden was looking to scale up its network,” added Christian Fredrikson, head of sales for Network Systems, Nokia Siemens Networks. “Our EPC prepares the operator for high-speed data services. It also eliminates the need for additional elements in the transport network and achieves an optimized IP-based network architecture that secures the operator’s investments in the long run.”

Notes to editors:
* LTE is the next-generation mobile broadband technology and the evolutionary step from GSM, WCDMA/HSPA/HSPA+, TD-SCDMA, CDMA and WiMAX networks. It promises the delivery of broadband and smart device services thanks to increased data rates, reduced latency and scalable flat all-IP network architecture. Nokia Siemens Networks is the frontrunner in LTE, being the first to make an LTE call using commercial hardware and standards-compliant software in September 2009.
** Nokia Siemens Networks’ Evolved Packet Core (EPC) solution includes Flexi NS (Network Server) acting as Mobility Management Entity (MME), and Flexi NG (Network Gateway) acting as Serving and Packet Data Network Gateway (S/P-GW).
