Telenor ready to implement 3G & 4G technolgy in Pakistan


Telenor Pakistan, the local wing of Telenor, has claimed that all of its local 7500 network sites are ready to take on the next generation network underway. This was told yesterday by the CTO of Telenor Pakistan, Gyorgy Koller, in an interview to an eminent local newspaper. He mentioned that Telenor has equipped itself with state-of-the-art equipment and networks in order to facilitate its clients in a better manner.

Telenor CTO highlighted that their network has revamped all the operating system responsible for supervision and control of the network with compact IP protocols.

With this upgradation, Telenor will be able to deal its user complaints in a more efficient manner and come up with a better solution.

He also added that the main purpose of network revamp was to enhance user exposure to operate in the next-gen networks and check the capability of their network. This will also assist the operator to make its system more energy-efficient and indicate the key performance indicators for the network.

However, Gyorgy Koller claimed that there is more room for optimization in order to achieve 4G readiness.

The CTO also mentioned that Telenor’s advance system is more environment-friendly and is 25 percent energy-efficient in contrast to the prior one. Such an energy-conscious system is beneficial for Pakistani markets where power shortage has severely devastated the business industry.

He also mentioned that the latest upgradation was one of the toughest jobs in Telenor’s history, but this mission impossible was accomplished in a record tenure of almost a year. The network has swapped some 21,000 elements in this duration and its network was not hindered even for 24 hours time.

As far as the preference of ZTE over European vendors was questioned, the CTO cited that the infrastructure, quality and expertise which Chinese operators give are unmatched and nearly the best on the planet.

Telenor CTO hinted that with the advent of 3G/4G in the country, 3G spectrum will offer high-profile speeds of 10-20 Mbps whereas 4G spectrum speeds will surge up to a smashing 100-200 Mbps.
