Mongolia's G-Mobile has contracted Alcatel-Lucent to deploy small cell base stations to improve 3G mobile broadband coverage in densely populated areas such as shopping malls and stadiums in Ulaanbaatar.
The capital city, which is home to about 45% of the country’s population, will be the location of an initial deployment. This will be followed by an expansion in 2014 covering the greater Ulaanbaatar area and other major Mongolian cities.
The deployment will use Alcatel-Lucent’s lightRadio small cells to improve the quality of mobile coverage for both voice and data access.
“This small cell solution is the very first of its kind in the Mongolian telecom sector,” said Daniel Rosie, country senior officer of Mongolia for Alcatel-Lucent
“By adding capacity and coverage exactly where it is needed, lightRadio has opened up the possibilities for expanding our business relationship with G-Mobile.”
