Hutchison 3G Austria modernizes for HSPA+ and LTE with NSN

Hutchison 3G Austria has selected Nokia Siemens Networks to modernize its radio access network to be ready for HSPA+ and LTE. Nokia Siemens Networks will undertake this upgrade starting in autumn 2009. New base stations will allow the operator to halve the energy consumption of its base stations. The operator's network will be ready for download data rates of 21 Mbps (High-Speed Packet Access, HSPA+) in early 2010. As of 2011 the network can be upgraded to LTE, offering theoretical data rates as high as 100Mbps or more. Financial terms were not disclosed.
