Nokia Networks buys 3-D geolocation solution from NICE Systems


In its bid to enhance its portfolio for planning and optimization of mobile networks, Nokia Networks has bought a broad solution for advanced geolocation capabilities from NICE Systems. As part of the arrangement, Nokia Networks gains access to tools, technical expertise, and the right to further develop these capabilities.

Geolocation uses three dimensional modelling aimed at delivering unparalleled accuracy of network performance for multivendor networks.  We believe that when combined with Nokia’s services expertise, this technology helps to provide deep insight into traffic trends and the performance of mobile broadband networks.

“Advanced network planning and optimization services are at the forefront of Nokia Networks’ strategic services to mobile operators.  The evolution of small cells and LTE necessitates more accurate 3-D geolocation capabilities. Nokia Networks  intends to enhance this unique solution in order to offer superior services to our customers, regardless of which network gear they use,” said Dennis Lorenzin, head of Network Planning and Optimization** at the Global Services business unit of Nokia Networks.

“Nokia Networks intends to build up a competence center in Israel, develop its future portfolio around 3-D modeling, and increase automation in its services. This is a further step in Nokia Networks’ pursuit of innovation that comes from the global community of technology companies,” said Dror Nemirovsky, head of Ecosystem Ventures at Nokia Networks.

“NICE is very pleased with this new engagement with Nokia Networks,” said Yaron Tchwella, President, NICE Security Group. “Nokia Networks is one of the leading mobile broadband service providers for the telecom operators worldwide, and with this arrangement, our unique 3-D solution will now be made available for a much larger installed base.”
