Mosaic Telecom selects Nokia Siemens Networks to deliver LTE services
Subscribers of Mosaic Telecom, a rural service provider in the United States, will soon enjoy ultra-fast wireless broadband services. The operator has selected Nokia Siemens Networks’ Long Term Evolution (LTE)* technology to use its existing 700 MHz and 1700/2100 MHz bands to deliver wireless broadband data services to a wider customer base. Mosaic will also improve indoor coverage for its 3G customers by deploying Nokia Siemens Networks’ femto base stations.

“Along with improving the 3G experience for our customers, we will start offering complementary LTE data services, thus strengthening our competitive position,” said Rick Vergin, chief executive officer of Mosaic Telecom. “The fact that we can reuse existing spectrum assets for the LTE implementation is a huge advantage. Since LTE is a technology adopted worldwide for many paired and unpaired frequency bands, it will also make our service adoption cost effective, convenient and efficient for us.”

Under the scope of the deal, Nokia Siemens Networks will supply its Evolved Packed Core** solution comprising Flexi NS (Network Server) and Flexi NG (Network Gateway) along with its LTE radio network based on the Flexi Multiradio Base Station. Nokia Siemens Networks’ Value-Added Reseller (VAR), Pario Solutions, will begin deployment in the first quarter of 2011. Nokia Siemens Networks will also provide NetAct to monitor, manage and optimize the operator’s network.

“Mosaic Telecom has been a leader in quadruple play in the North American rural market, consistently delivering top quality services to its customers. With this LTE implementation, it will once again take the lead in supporting high data speeds in rural America,” said Mike Jurcy, head of channels for Nokia Siemens Networks in North America. “Our LTE solution will play a key role in driving the worldwide commercial adoption of the technology.”

Nokia Siemens Networks continues to be a leader in commercialization of LTE in terms of references and performance of live networks according to an independent research report.*
