Telenor Picks ip.access for Small Cells
CAMBRIDGE, U.K. -- Pioneering developer of small cell mobile technology, ip.access, today confirmed it had signed a major global agreement with Telenor Group, one of the world’s leading mobile network operator groups, for the supply of ip.access' end-to-end small cell solutions.
The frame agreement covers all 11 operators in the Telenor Group including its home network in Norway, as well as the other Scandinavian countries plus Telenor’s operations in Eastern Europe, the Indian sub-continent and the Asia Pacific region.
Telenor’s selection was based on a number of key criteria, including the ability to deliver an end-to-end solution, technical credibility, and a competitive long term Total Cost of Ownership.
Under the terms of the deal, ip.access will be able to supply its standards-compliant end-to-end 3G small cell solution for residential, business and public use to Telenor operators worldwide. Last year, ip.access was the first vendor to pass the milestone of more than half a million 3G small cells operational in networks globally. The deal also has provision to potentially extend to 4G in future.
