Siemens to build W-CDMA network for Tele2 in Lithuania
Siemens will be supplying all of the Baltic countries with W-CDMA network technology: Following orders from mobile operator Tele2 in Estonia and Latvia last year, UAB Tele2 in Lithuania has now also contracted with the Siemens Communications Group to build a nationwide 3G network.
We are pleased about this series of orders from Tele2. They confirm our quality and performance in building mobile infrastructures as well as our leading role in 3G technology, said Christoph Caselitz, President of Mobile Networks at Siemens Communications. In addition to 3G radio technology, Siemens will be upgrading existing line- and packet-switched network elements in order to enable broadband data services, like music downloads to mobile handsets or video telephony, in Lithuania.
Independent industry analysts rank Siemens/NEC number one in the 3G/W-CDMA market with respect to commercially installed base stations NodeBs (source: Multimedia Research Institute, Tokyo, April 2005). Approximately 40 operators in over 30 countries throughout the world are already utilizing 3G technology from Siemens.
