Airtel bets on Nokia’s Siemens’ SADM solution to improve services in Africa
TT Correspondent |  |  18 Oct 2011

Bharti Airtel has joined hands with Nokia Siemens to improve internet connectivity and mobile data services in 16 African countries using the latter’s Serve at Once Device Management (SADM) software.

 

In addition, Nokia Siemens Networks will consolidate the operator’s existing multimedia messaging service (MMS) platforms into one centrally managed virtual platform.

 

Nokia Siemens Networks’ SADM* will enable Bharti Airtel to remotely and automatically manage and configure user devices for new data services. The software will also enable the operator to gain valuable insights on device capabilities to make right business decisions when introducing new services.

 

“Nokia Siemens Networks’ robust mobile device management solution will allow our customers in Africa to enjoy the latest services by enabling seamless internet connectivity and excellent customer care support. The solution will benefit Airtel from reduced operational costs when introducing new devices or services”, said  Manoj Kohli, CEO (International) and joint managing director, Bharti Airtel. 

 

Rajeev Suri, chief executive officer of Nokia Siemens Networks, said, “The shift towards smart networks that understand user preferences and enable delivery of customized services is helping operators such as Bharti Airtel deliver a superior mobile broadband experience. Nokia Siemens Networks supports this transition by helping operators to manage user experience better and deliver improved services seamlessly.” 

 

In addition, under a three-year contract, Nokia Siemens Networks will provide its mobile internet browsing solution (MIBS) and multimedia messaging solution, hosted on a virtualized and centrally managed VaaS platform. This will allow Bharti Airtel to provide these services faster and cost efficiently to all its customers across all affiliates in Africa.
