- Huawei and Nokia have been selected to provide cutting edge technology for the roll-out of what is one of the most ambitious telecoms projects worldwide.
- Thanks to Nokia and Huawei, Mexico will have the best mobile network worldwide in 4G-LTE technology.
Mexico City, 30 March 2017. ALTÁN Redes today announced the selection of Huawei and Nokia as technology providers for the roll-out of Red Compartida, Mexico’s most relevant telecoms project.
With Nokia and Huawei on board as anchor suppliers Red Compartida will be providing new generation 4G-LTE technologies to at least 92.2% of the population. The network is set to begin providing services no later than March 31st, 2018. The provider agreement includes Huawei technology for central and southern Mexico (telecommunications regions 6 to 9) as well as providing the backbone; while Nokia’s technology will be rolled out in the northern part of the country (regions 1 to 5). Additionally, Nokia will be in charge of the construction of the network’s Core, which includes the Network Operation Center (NOC) and Security Operation Center (SOC).
Thanks to ALTÁN’s technology strategy, Red Compartida’s network will be pure IP-based technology, fully prepared for the future deployment of the next mobile broadband technology standard, 5G (already tested in certain countries), and reaching areas where currently traditional operators have no presence in 4G broadband services.
Thanks to these contracts, Huawei and Nokia will build and operate the network based on a turn-key model, committing to timely deployment and fulfilment of network coverage and performance requirements.
Joaquín Coronado, Managing Director, ALTÁN Redes commented: “It has been a very demanding selection process, as Red Compartida is today’s most ambitious telecoms project worldwide. The quality of the technology, experience, roll-out capacity as well as balance sheet potential are aspects that we have taken into account. With Huawei and Nokia as technology partners, I am convinced that Red Compartida will have unparalleled quality and reach. We are confident that our partners Huawei and Nokia will soon provide Mexico with the best mobile broadband 4G-LTE technology available worldwide.”
