The Bosnian & Herzegovinian operator BH Telecom and Nokia have signed an agreement to implement DWDM optical infrastructure.
Commenting on the development, Sedin Kahriman, general manager of BH Telecom, said: “the realisation of the implementation of DWDM optical infrastructure builds a backbone as a prerequisite for intensive traffic growth (national and international) of all existing internet broadband and multimedia services of BH Telecom, and as a basis for the implementation of 5G network and services. The project and works will be carried out at a total of 41 locations, of which 34 locations are in Bosnia and Herzegovina, while the remaining seven locations are in Croatia, Serbia and Hungary. It is planned that the works will be carried out in phases, with the aim of completing the works at key regional locations/centers by the end of this year, and the complete project during the next year.
“It is a great pleasure for us to expand the long-standing cooperation between Nokia and BH Telecom on such an important and strategic project, the implementation of which goes beyond the borders of Bosnia & Herzegovina.
Nokia country manager Dino Miljkovic added: “It is a great pleasure for us to expand the long-standing cooperation between Nokia and BH Telecom on such an important and strategic project, the implementation of which goes beyond the borders of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
