UAE’s du selects Nokia to modernize Voice Core Network

du, from Emirates Integrated Telecommunication Company (EITC), has selected Nokia to modernize its Circuit Switched Core network.

Under the project, Nokia will expand and modernize the existing IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) Voice Core Network in order to extend Voice over Long Term Evolution (VoLTE) services.

Once fully deployed, the project will enhance voice quality and enable customers to access new advanced services. The modernization of du’s existing infrastructure will ensure a smooth transition to Voice over New Radio (VoNR) services. The deployment will also allow du to provide customers with improved Fixed voice services.

Mr. AlBlooshi added that “Additionally, we are excited to unveil new and modern services that will certainly delight our users. This project marks a significant milestone in our pursuit of delivering even greater value and experiences to our loyal customer base.”

Nokia will provide the operator with its AVA Traffica and Mediation solutions to offer crucial, real-time insights that improve network management.

The deployment of Nokia solutions will additionally provide support for 3G users until they are ready to upgrade their handsets to support VoLTE service, and enhance the current capacity of IMS to accommodate growing network usage.

Mr. Samar Mittal, VP, Cloud and Network Services (CNS), Global Business Center (GBC) at Nokia MEA said that “The UAE is an early adopter of digitalization, and this leads to a significant demand for high-performing voice and data services. This project with du has a direct positive impact on end users, who will benefit from high-quality voice experiences across all technologies while also setting the foundation for new and exciting services in the future.”
