The statement said deployment of the Nokia Single Radio Access Network (RAN) software would simplify network installation, allowing BSNL to save operational costs while supporting 2G, 3G and 4G subscribers in a single radio unit. “New VoLTE services will allow BSNL’s 4G subscribers to experience HD-quality voice and faster call connections,” it added.
