By CBR Staff Writer

SFR, a French mobile phone firm, has selected Nokia Siemens Networks to build a mobile voice and data network in rural France, which will also be shared with subscribers of Orange and Bouygues.

Under the three-year agreement, Nokia Siemens Networks will modernise and expand SFRs 3G/HSPA+ radio access network.

In addition, Nokia Siemens Networks will deliver its Flexi Multiradio Base Station, that provides energy savings, while deploying 3G/HSPA+ and modernising SFR’s existing GSM network.

The vendor will also provide network implementation and managed services as part of the contract.

Nokia Siemens Networks said that the project is the first example of 3G (HSPA+ at 900 Mhz) Radio Access Network (RAN) sharing and will enable more people to enjoy the benefits of extended mobile broadband.
