NSN to upgrade M1's Singapore network

16 April 2013 | Mitch Sayers


Singapore operator M1 has partnered with Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) to modernise its mobile network and provide 3G infrastructure in the country.

The operator has contracted NSN to deploy a 3G radio network on the 900MHz band, updating its core infrastructure to an all-IP network in an effort to improve its network performance. NSN will add radio modules in its existing base stations to complement 3G services on 2100MHz bandwidth.

The deal is worth a reported $68.71 million, with work set to be completed by the second half of 2013.

“With this latest investment, our customers can look forward to a better mobile experience and coverage,” said Patrick Scodeller, chief operating officer at M1, in the statement.
