West African cellco Africell has contracted Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) to deploy a mobile softswitching solution in its GSM networks in Gambia and Sierra Leone. The implementation is aimed at increasing efficiency by reducing operating expenses, while meeting subscribers’ growing demands and accelerating the deployment of new services. ‘The development of our core network is crucial to Africell’s future success as our call traffic continues to increase. Implementing NSN’s 3GPP Release 4 architecture will improve our overall network capacity in order to optimise the network resources providing state-of-the-art services to our customers,’ said Ziad Dalloul, CEO for Lintel Group, Africell’s holding company. The contract follows on from NSN’s expansion of radio and core mobile networks for the Gambian and Sierra Leone units.
