MILAN -- WIND Telecommunicazioni in Italy continues to invest in modernizing its radio network with the aim of improving mobile broadband speeds to offer high-quality, innovative services. Tests carried out in Milan on mobile broadband connections have been successfully completed, achieving speeds of up to 42 Mbps (megabits per second), thanks to Nokia Siemens Networks’ radio access technology. The introduction of HSPA+ at 42 Mbps (High Speed Packet Access Plus) will improve the reliability of mobile internet connections for data intensive services used by smartphone users while reducing the network energy consumption for the operator. The technology will also ready the network for future improvements expected from LTE technology.

“In order to improve the quality of services for our customers and rapidly expand our mobile broadband business, we needed strategic partners to implement technology quickly and smoothly,” said Ziad Shatara, CTO, WIND. “With its ability to innovate, vast experience in network modernization and focus on energy efficiency, we found an ideal partner in Nokia Siemens Networks. The company’s systems are already prepared for future technological evolutions in radio access networks.”
