Nokia Wins Service Delivery Platform and Managed Services Contract With Hutchison Telecom Indonesia

This Win Establishes Nokia as a Leader in the Strategic Service Delivery Platform Market

ESPOO, Finland, November 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PT Hutchison CP Telecommunications (Hutchison Telecom Indonesia) has selected Nokia to supply and manage a complete Service Delivery Platform (SDP) solution as part of the operator's GSM/WCDMA 3G rollout. The platform comprises a mobile portal for data and voice, supporting the delivery of value added end-user services such as games, news, music, video streaming and downloading, along with over-the-air provisioning of the appropriate settings to mobile devices.

The deal highlights Nokia's multivendor capability as a systems integrator through implementation and integration of the OMA compliant Service Delivery Platform in Hutchison's multivendor network. Nokia will operate the platform under a managed services contract, thus enabling Hutchison to concentrate on developing new end-user services and customer relationships. The first version of the system has been successfully delivered to Hutchison.

"Nokia's SDP solution meets both our technical and commercial requirements," says John Shen, CTO, Hutchison Telecom Indonesia. "We chose Nokia because they clearly showed the right combination of experience and competence in this business-critical area. We can now look forward to reducing our time to market for new services and increasing the number of services to our customers. Having Nokia integrate the solution and operate the service architecture will help us achieve these goals."

"The Nokia Service Platform Delivery will facilitate enhanced service innovation and quality, and thus enables Hutchison to implement new GSM and WCDMA 3G services efficiently. This contract will further enhance Nokia's leadership in delivering SDP solutions," says Marko Kytoharju, Country Director, Networks, Nokia Indonesia.

Nokia Consulting & Integration leverages the Nokia Service Delivery Framework, a holistic approach to help operators build an optimal service delivery platform in order to seize new service opportunities by delivering new services in a rapid and cost-efficient manner. The Nokia Service Delivery Framework alleviates operators' often complex service delivery environments that have been built up incrementally, resulting in heavy OPEX overhead.

With its in-depth understanding of operators' business and networks expertise, Nokia Consulting & Integration (C&I) helps operators to differentiate and introduce new services to market more quickly, ensure quality of experience and help drive customer loyalty by providing consulting and professional services in the areas of network design, service management and performance, and service delivery solutions. Nokia C&I has completed more than 350 systems integration projects globally.

With its proven track record in managing networks on behalf of operators around the world, Nokia is able to support operators to enhance their service offerings and reduce costs. Nokia is a major player in the Managed Services business with close to 60 managed services contracts globally.
