SFR Deploys LTE in Paris with NSN

SFR has deployed NSN's Liquid Radio technology for its commercial LTE launch in Paris.

Specifically, NSN has provided its Single RAN Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Stations, which can be made LTE-Advanced capable with a simple software upgrade. NSN has also supplied its NetAct network management system to ensure consolidated configuration, monitoring, management and optimization for SFR’s network.

“This project is an important landmark in our long-term partnership with SFR,” said Benoit Duchene, head of the SFR customer business team at NSN. “SFR’s customers in Paris can now enjoy a mobile broadband experience that’s unmatched-in terms of latency, speed and the range of services available. We are committed to helping SFR in its endeavour to evolve towards networks capable of monetizing future opportunities.”
