Yangon, Myanmar – April 23, 2014
Plan to bolster relationship with local operators and further improve service delivery capabilities
Nokia Solutions and Networks has opened two new offices in Yangon, the former capital of Myanmar. As a result, NSN will be better equipped to enable domestic operators to provide network coverage to a vast majority of users across the country. With a permanent set-up to execute its operations, NSN has reiterated its resolve to provide optimum support to customers in Myanmar and also support the growth of the telecommunications industry there.
“Myanmar’s communications industry is evolving at a rapid pace, and NSN remains committed to hasten this evolution by providing its technology and expertise to local operators,” said Raman Vattumalai, country head of Myanmar at NSN. “The decision to open modern and fully-equipped offices in Yangon underlines our promise to deliver best-in-class services to our customers. This is in line with our aim to help the government fulfill its pledge to provide network coverage across 90% of Myanmar by 2015.”
Ooredoo recently selected NSN to supply its core and radio infrastructure for its 3G network in Myanmar. This deal marked NSN’s entry in the nation’s telecommunications landscape.
NSN’s twin facilities in Myanmar will provide employment opportunities to local youth and empower the people of the country.
