Singapore's M1 Deploys NSN's Liquid Core

Singapore's M1 has selected Nokia Siemens Networks to implement its Liquid Core platform and radio network and to refarm GSM 900 MHz frequency to expand its 3G network.

Under the contract, Nokia Siemens Networks will provide its Single RAN with Flexi Multiradio Base Station, coupled with its Multicontroller RNC and Liquid Radio software. As part of the Liquid Core portfolio, the company will also provide its ATCA-based open Mobile Switching Center Server (MSS) and open Media Gateway (MGW) to ensure the resiliency and operational efficiency of the operator’s voice core network. This modernization will ensure an all-IP network for M1. Financial terms were not disclosed.

“A vital business mantra for all operators is to provide the best service experience to their customers, but what is equally vital is doing so cost efficiently,” said Paul Tyler, head of Asia Pacific, Nokia Siemens Networks. “We have well understood the exact requirements of M1 and will provide our advanced Liquid Core platform and refarming service, which are cost efficient, and help increase revenue for the operator.”
