NEC selected by Telenor for IP Network modernization in Sweden and Norway
Tokyo, Japan & Stockholm, Sweden - March 31, 2016 - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) today announced with NEC Scandinavia that it has been selected to provide routing, switching and security equipment, as well as, training, spare parts, technical support and maintenance services, to Telenor Norway and Telenor Sweden within the frame of their IP/MPLS Network Modernization program (BRUT).
As part of these projects, NEC will prepare, enable and perform the migration of services in a turnkey arrangement in cooperation with Telenor, thanks to its understanding of the complexity and configurations of the overall platform architecture.
Furthermore, NEC will also develop, support and maintain the modernized Nordic one-operations IP/MPLS network for an initial period of five years. This will help to ensure a non-stop network with uptime of at least five nines (99.999%), with a feature rich capability to deliver enhanced IP services to Telenor's increasing subscriber base.
These projects are strengthening the existing partnerships between NEC Corporation and Telenor, evidenced by the signing of an IP and Optical Global Frame Agreement in July 2015, in addition to the existing Microwave Radio Agreement, thus confirming the position of NEC as a strategic provider in the transport and IP spaces in the numerous countries where Telenor successfully operates.
The selection of NEC highlights not only its capability to provide state-of-the-art, innovative and end-to-end solutions as a leading system integrator, but also its commercial creativity and understanding of customer requirements and needs with a long-term perspective.
"NEC is delighted to contribute to Telenor Sweden, Telenor Norway, and Telenor Group's strategy to provide centralized functions and synergies, in order to reach a cost-effective operating model and a fast time-to-market," said Marc Barbotin, Managing Director, NEC Scandinavia. "NEC's ambition is to be a trusted partner for the long run with Telenor in Scandinavia and in all regions and countries where Telenor operates."
