Zain Nigeria Selects NSN for Optical Backbone

Zain Nigeria has selected Nokia Siemens Networks to expand its existing 4000 km nationwide fiber backbone network by an additional 600 km.

The Nokia Siemens Networks' Outside Plant Turnkey Solution for fixed networks ensures that all elements including project management, logistics and installation services are designed to optimize CAPEX and lower OPEX. NSN said Zain has already profited from the efficient roll-out of Phase 1 resulting in savings of close to US$7 million.
