M1 Limited (M1) has selected Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) to modernise its mobile networks, the Singapore telco announced on Monday (15 April).
NSN will also deploy a nationwide 3G radio network on the 900MHz frequency band, at the value of up to S$85 million (US$69 million) for M1, the telco said in a statement.
M1 said that the network modernisation programme includes the upgrading of M1's core infrastructure to an all-IP network and pooling of mobile switching centres and customer databases to enable dynamic allocation of resources.
The telco said this process will improve network performance and efficiency and enhance network resiliency.
M1's network modernisation and deployment of 3G radio network on the 900MHz frequency band are scheduled to complete in the second half of 2013.
