NOKIA TO UPGRADE OOREDOO’S NETWORK
Nokia Corp. and Ooredoo Qatar have signed a three-year agreement under which Nokia will upgrade and expand Ooredoo's existing mobile broadband network across the country. Under its Supernet initiative, one of the most significant network evolutions in the country's history, Ooredoo Qatar is already using Nokia's LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation technology to offer subscribers with compatible mobile devices up to 375 megabits-per-second speeds in busy areas of Doha. Under the new agreement, Nokia will deploy its leading 2G, 3G, 4G LTE, LTE-A radio and core network technologies and services expertise. This will allow Ooredoo Qatar to expand the Supernet service across the country.
