BARCELONA and NEW DELHI -- Nokia Siemens Networks has been awarded a major contract from IDEA Cellular Limited, a leading Indian GSM mobile services provider, and an Aditya Birla Group company. Nokia Siemens Networks will deploy and integrate a device management solution in all Idea’s telecom circles in India. The solution will enable IDEA Cellular to improve service quality and enhance the end-user experience as the operator will be able to automatically send service settings to their subscribers’ mobile devices.

Nokia Siemens Networks will deploy and integrate its Terminal Management Server (NTMS) device management solution into IDEA Cellular’s pan-Indian multivendor network. The contract covers all telecom circles in which IDEA operates, and includes also supply, installation, commissioning, and project management. The IDEA network continues to be supported by the multivendor, multitechnology NetAct network and service management solution.

With this contract, Nokia Siemens Networks becomes the largest device management solution provider in India. The solution will be ready for commercial operation by the end of the third quarter in 2008.

The solution enables IDEA Cellular to manage devices across its network remotely, securely and efficiently, updating customer settings for picture messaging, internet browsing and other important mobile services. New customers, as well as those changing devices, will therefore be given access to IDEA Cellular's full suite of applications and services with the maximum ease and speed.

“Data is emerging as a key revenue generator for us. Nokia Siemens Networks’ industry leading device management solution will allow us to remotely manage customer devices and improve customer satisfaction through easy and automated device configuration. We believe this will accelerate the launch of new data services,” said Sanjeev Aga, Managing Director, IDEA Cellular. “Nokia Siemens Networks is our strategic partner in transforming and modernizing our service management capability to meet the needs of our customers in a highly competitive market.”
