Globalive Wireless Management Corp., Canada’s newest wireless network, is building a Greenfield 3G network to address the growing demand for next generation telecom services in Canada.

 

Nokia Siemens Networks will provide Globalive with hardware and software such as the future proof, LTE-compliant Flexi Multimode Base Station, Radio Network Controller, and Network Management and Service Assurance Operating Support Systems, along with services that include turnkey site acquisition and construction, network integration and implementation, optimization and managed services.

 

“Expanding Nokia Siemens Networks’ footprint in North America is a clear goal for our company, which has been evident in our recent bid for certain wireless assets at Nortel,” said Sue Spradley, head of North America, Nokia Siemens Networks.

 

“We recognize the importance of adding jobs in Canada, contributing to the country’s leadership in wireless innovation and creating an opportunity for economic stimulus by building new communications networks.”

 

Nokia Siemens Networks now offers its products and services to four wireless service providers in Canada.
