Nokia modernising du’s voice core network in UAE

UAE-based operator du has selected Nokia to modernise its Circuit Switched Core network.

As part of the project, Nokia will expand and upgrade 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 modernisation 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. Nokia will provide the operator with its AVA Traffica and Mediation solutions to offer crucial, real-time insights that improve network management.

Additionally, the solutions will provide support for 3G users until they are ready to upgrade their handsets to support VoLTE service, as well as enhancing the current capacity of IMS to accommodate growing network usage.

Samar Mittal, VP, Cloud and Network Services (CNS), Global Business Center (GBC) at Nokia MEA said: “The UAE is an early adopter of digitalisation, 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.”
