Telenor and Telia have signed a managed services contract with Nokia that will see the company manage their joint mobile radio network in Denmark.

The agreement will allow Telia and Telenor to offer customers of Denmark's largest mobile network even better coverage and greater capacity for a world-class mobile experience.

Nokia will take over all operational and development tasks of Telia and Telenor's radio access network in October 2017, and provide network planning and optimization, network implementation, and network operations for the network that consists of more than 4,000 mobile sites around the country. This will expand network capacity, ensure a quality boost in the customer experience and pave the way for the introduction of new technologies, said Nokia.

Henrik Kofod, CTO, Telia Denmark
The combination of Telia and Telenor's network has been a historic business. Today we have a world-class mobile network, and this step to have Nokia manage it for us will ensure we also have the best network in five or ten years.

Igor Leprince, President of Global Services, Nokia 
Telia and Telenor are focused on exceeding the requirements of their customers. In selecting their new managed services provider, the operators highlighted the need for experience, quality, capacity and, not least, security.
