Thai telecom service provider DTAC has received the first of 1,500 Flexi Edge base stations from Nokia Siemens Networks, taking a step closer to building a highly efficient and environmentally sustainable mobile network.

Nokia Siemens' solutions claim up to 70 percent energy savings, while maintaining DTAC's advantage in delivering high data rates to its customers. The Flexi Base Station technology enables operators to minimize the number of base station sites and the need for air conditioning at the sites. Moreover, the solution allows operators to deploy software features to optimize the use of radio access for wireless communications. All these benefits not only result in a more environmentally friendly network operation, but also lower operating and capital costs for operators.

DTAC chief technology officer Rolf Marthinusen said, "As a responsible corporation, we need to be conscious of the environment in which we operate and do our best in adopting green solutions, where possible. Nokia Siemens Networks solutions based on the Flexi base station let us reduce adverse effects on the environment, while providing a cost efficient high performing network."

Suwit Pruckwattananon, head of DTAC customer team, Nokia Siemens Networks Thailand, added, "Operators are increasingly looking at us to help them improve overall efficiency in their business. Our Flexi Base Station technology provides several advantages in terms of the overall cost of operating the network and has accordingly met with tremendous response from our customers."
