France's SFR Selects Mobile Backhaul from NSN

France's SFR has selected a radio solution from Nokia Siemens Networks to enable the migration of its mobile backhaul network to all IP architecture.

Earlier this month, SFR in collaboration with Nokia Siemens Networks became the first to showcase such applications in France on a live 3G network with a 14 Mbps mobile broadband connection.

Nokia Siemens Networks' integrated IP radio access solution is a part of the Flexi Base Station platform, which supports High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) and can help operators easily migrate their mobile backhaul to IP using software. This solution is also compatible with SFR's fixed broadband access technologies. Since it supports high bandwidth and low latency, it enables operators to offer a real-time multimedia experience at reduced costs.
