Three Ireland has signed a five-year managed services contract with Nokia to manage all of its multi-technology, multi-vendor radio access network operations.
The agreement is the result of Three Ireland choosing to upgrade the operations of its newly expanded radio access network by working with a single managed service supplier. According to Nokia, it will offer a simplified management structure across all equipment, from different vendors, using its innovative network management tools, processes and expertise.
Nokia will also leverage the leading network management expertise of its Global Delivery Center in Lisbon, Portugal. From this central location, Nokia will provide real-time remote support to manage the new consolidated radio network, enabling additional network technologies to be implemented quickly to deliver the highest quality of service for Three Ireland’s customers. In addition, Nokia said that it will provide local in-country management to ensure that the customer communication is seamless.
