MUNICH and ESPOO, Finland -- Telefonica O2 Germany, one of the fastest growing mobile phone operators in the country, is moving to expand network coverage and capacity to provide its customers with improved mobile voice and online services. Nokia Siemens Networks will carry out this modernization project enabling the operator to reduce network power consumption.

In a separate deal, O2 has chosen Nokia Siemens Networks to carry out implementation services at more than 200 radio access sites. It is the first customer win for Nokia Siemens Networks service subsidiary in Germany, established in January 2008.

The network expansion project will enhance the capability of O2’s 2G and 3G networks and expand their coverage with the latest radio access technology. Under a wide-ranging 3-year contract, Nokia Siemens Networks will supply O2 Germany with its energy-efficient radio access solution, bringing at the same time environmental and operational benefits to the operator.

“Our objective is to use the most advanced technology, to further increase our coverage as well as to reduce costs. To achieve our goals, we need reliable partners who can supply us with state-of-the-art equipment and extensive services at best commercial conditions,” said Andrea Folgueiras, CTO of O2 in Germany.
