First Nokia Networks Telco Cloud implementation in Brazil
Nokia Networks selected as sole supplier for radio access, core network and services
Algar Telecom to introduce LTE services in the 700 MHz band, modernize its 3G
network and pave the path for VoLTE and VoWiFi services
São Paulo, Brazil – 22 April 2015
Algar Telecom, the telecommunications arm of the Algar group, has entrusted Nokia
Networks with the responsibility of enabling LTE services in the 700 MHz band,
upgrading its 3G network and implementing Telco Cloud. Under a 5-year turnkey
contract, Nokia Networks will provide radio and core networks and managed services
to transform the operator’s network infrastructure. With this, subscribers in Minas
Gerais, Goiás, Mato Grosso do Sul and São Paulo will soon enjoy new voice and data
services with excellent coverage and capacity.
Post implementation, subscribers will have access to significantly better 3G services as
Algar Telecom continues to expand its coverage across Brazil. Additionally, Nokia Networks
will modernize the operator’s network to enable it to offer 4G services in the future – thus
reaffirming Algar Telecom’s commitment to continually evolve and adapt its infrastructure to
address the demand for data-centric services.
Telco Cloud revolutionizes how operators run their networks, launch new services
As a cutting-edge technology, Telco Cloud provides multiple benefits for operators and their
customers alike. With Nokia Networks’ cloud infrastructure, Algar Telecom will have flexibility
in its network to cope with unpredictable data traffic patterns and shorten roll-out time for
new services while reducing deployment costs. This approach marks a significant step in the
operator’s strategy to increase network capacity and provide excellent customer experience.

* Nokia’s compact, multi-technology, modular and weatherproof Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station is an
award winner and supports a throughput of 10 Gbps. It improves power consumption in base station
sites by 70% compared to traditional cabinet-based sites.
** Nokia Flexi Zone enables operators to increase capacity by deploying clusters of access points in
hot spots and zones. The award-winning Flexi Zone is an LTE/3G/Wi-Fi-capable solution which
complements macro networks with an underlay of small cells at the street and indoor level. This
provides significant performance benefits, macro co-existence, traffic offloading, simplified
backhauling and low O&M impact so that operators can provide a remarkably rich customer
experience in urban capacity problem areas while keeping the total cost of ownership much lower
than traditional small-cell deployments.
*** Nokia’s Subscriber Data Management (SDM), including One-NDS and New Technology Home
Location Register (NT-HLR), is a central entity for mobile communication networks. It hosts all
relevant subscriber information as well as network and mobility application information needed to
allow a completely seamless communication in GSM, 3G and LTE networks worldwide. SDM
architecture is based on the concept of separating application service logic (dataless NT HLR front
end) and application data (One-NDS). Because of this architecture, the solution scales flexibly and is
highly reliable, providing new value added functionalities for operators.
