Telenor is going to replace its entire mobile services infrastructure in Norway during the next years, with the aim of creating a flexible and cost efficient platform for mobile services. Huawei and Starent Networks have been chosen as the technology providers for the wireless network and mobile core network, respectively.
The scope of the agreement includes the delivery of equipment across technology generations and frequency bands, as well as multi-base stations for 2G, 3G/UMTS and 4G/LTE. The change of providers will also entail digitisation, with the entire wireless network and core network being migrated to an IP-based platform.
