Celcom optimises Malaysian network with Nokia

Malaysian provider and Axiata subsidiary Celcom has selected Nokia’s optimisation services to enhance its network, voice and data quality in Klang Valley and Kuala Lumpur.

Dato’ Sri Shazalli Ramly, Chief Executive Officer of Celcom Axiata Berhad, said: “After implementing it across Sabah, Sarawak and the East Coast, we are expanding this program to the Klang Valley. This year, we will be investing about RM1 billion to improve network quality and capacity for better data services, with the target of completing  2,014 active 4G LTE sites nationwide by the end of the year.”

Nokia will use real-time network information combined with the latest geolocation techniques to plan and optimise Celcom’s 2G and 3G radio network infrastructure. By profiling device usage and behaviour as well as traffic patterns, Nokia’s unique optimisation service will pinpoint exactly where additional capacity or coverage is needed.

Together, Nokia and Celcom will then plan solutions to handle rapidly growing data traffic, boost network performance and enhance the mobile broadband experience for each user. Network optimisation is supported further by device profiling and the company’s Smart Device Insight which measures the actual user experience, enabling targeted and swift improvement actions.
