Pakistan's Jazz and Nokia have signed a contract to support Jazz's expansion of its 4G network to provide better coverage and a superior subscriber experience.

Jazz is a leading service provider in Pakistan and has the highest number of subscribers in the country. The network expansion and upgrade of more than 4000 sites will allow more subscribers to enjoy 4G services.

Nokia radio solutions will be deployed in the central and southern Punjab province as well as the Sindh and Baluchistan provinces, enhancing delivery in densely populated cities including Faisalabad, Multan, Bhawalpur, Rahimyar Khan and Sukkur. Once deployed Jazz subscribers will be able to enjoy a range of bandwidth-intensive applications and services.

In the project, Nokia AirScale radio stations will be deployed to expand 4G coverage nationwide and Massive Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology will enhance capacity and speed, whereas Nokia AirFrame-based cloud controllers will improve efficiency. Further, Nokia NetAct will monitor the entire network, across technologies, providing improved visibility and enabling Jazz to proactively address problems.

Khalid Shehzad, CTIO, Jazz
Nokia's advanced equipment coupled with its commitment to provide quality professional services will ensure that our subscribers enjoy superior service experience. It will help us maintain our growth momentum and attract new subscribers.

Khalid Khan, Head of the Middle East Growh Markets, Nokia
We are committed to supporting Jazz in providing better 4G coverage to meet the growing data demand in Pakistan. Once deployed, Jazz will be able to provide a much-improved mobile broadband customer experience, in addition to launching exciting new services to more subscribers.
