Nextel launches new Motorola iDEN network in Chile

Thursday 25 September 2008 | 08:30 CET | News
Latin American mobile operator NII Holdings has implemented Melody, Motorola's iDEN dispatch and telephone interconnect core switching platform, to provide enhanced service to its Nextel clients in Chile. The new Melody platform lets push-to-talk and telephone interconnect users roam and communicate with other iDEN subscribers in four NII markets including Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Peru, as well as with iDEN subscribers in the United States. The Melody switching core platform has the ability to scale up in capacity over time to serve several million dispatch and interconnect subscribers and expand to more than 1,000 cell sites. The new iDEN Melody dispatch and interconnect architecture utilises ATCA hardware. The ATCA-based Melody switching core has the same features and scalable capacity as the first-generation iDEN core design but occupies about one-tenth the amount of floor space and has lower power consumption. The Melody platform is planned to be generally available in Q4.
