Nokia Siemens Networks has won a five-year deal from The Telekom Austria Group (TAG) to deploy high-quality mobile broadband services and network performance systems. 

Under a five-year deal, the Operator  has selected Nokia Siemens Networks to replace and modernize its radio networks in Austria, Liechtenstein and Slovenia, and to further deploy 3G services in Serbia and Belarus. 

The new, energy-efficient network will be ready to support next generation mobile technologies, including High Speed Packet Access Plus (HSPA+) and Long Term Evolution (LTE), via software upgrades, says NSN.

“Nokia Siemens Networks’ mobile network technology brings an array of benefits – mobile broadband services with a clear evolution path for our subscribers, efficient use of future investments as well as lower electricity bills for us,” said Hans Pichler, Group Chief Technology Officer of the Telekom Austria Group. 

The contract includes a broad range of services such as implementation, commissioning, network optimization and maintenance as well as vendor's network management and optimization solution NetAct.

The renewal of GSM in Austria and Slovenia has already started and the 3G network deployment in Belarus was successfully launched in March 2010, while the deployment in Serbia started in June 2010.
