São Paulo, Brazil – April 3, 2013 
TIM Brasil selects Nokia Siemens Networks to build 4G LTE network
Vendor’s Single RAN to help operator deliver ultra-fast mobile broadband 
services for upcoming Football Cup events 
Customers of TIM Brasil will soon enjoy super-fast 4G LTE 
rm-evolution-lte) (long term evolution) mobile broadband 
services. The operator has selected Nokia Siemens Networks to deploy an LTE 
network layer on top of the operator’s existing 2G and 3G networks in the 2.6 
GHz frequency band. 
“Our long-term partnership with Nokia Siemens Networks has been excellent, and 
the 2G and 3G equipment installed by the company is performing so well that it 
was a natural decision to deploy an LTE network with the same vendor,” said 
Marco di Costanzo, Head of Mobile Network, TIM Brasil. “We are confident that 
Nokia Siemens Networks will build a robust LTE network for us to launch 
ultra-fast 4G mobile broadband services to satisfy our customers.” 
“With our advanced radio network and related services, we will smoothly deploy 
an LTE network for TIM Brasil so that its subscribers can enjoy reliable 
connections as well as ultra-fast mobile broadband services,” said Aray Chagas, 
head of local operators at Nokia Siemens Networks. “We are committed to helping 
TIM Brasil by improving network coverage and fulfilling the ever-increasing 
demand for high-speed networks.” 
Under the contract, Nokia Siemens Networks will deliver an LTE radio access 
network featuring its award-winning and high-capacity Flexi Multiradio Base 
Stations. The Flexi Multiradio Base Station is a Single RAN (radio access 
network) base station for GSM, 3G, FDD-LTE and TD-LTE. It provides an easy and 
cost-effective site upgrade to LTE and uses common OSS for multiple 
technologies. By using the Single RAN Flexi Multiradio Base Station, TIM Brasil 
can upgrade its site to 2.6 GHz LTE while saving time, space and power 
consumption – all translating to lower capital costs for the operator. 
Nokia Siemens Networks will also upgrade TIM Brasil’s NetAct 
ms/netact) network management system to enable consolidated and effective 
monitoring, management and optimization of its network. In addition, the 
company will deliver its Intelligent Self Organizing Networks (iSON)* 
(http://eu.vocuspr.com/Url.aspx?519382x22884246x16519376) capability for 
increased automation and faster rollout. 
Nokia Siemens Networks’ complete network life-cycle services will help TIM 
Brasil move smoothly toward LTE and minimize technical and commercial risks. 
The high-quality network deployment will be coupled with world-class project 
management, network optimization as well as feature introduction and 
maintenance services. By taking advantage of Nokia Siemens Networks’ 
comprehensive and customized training solutions, TIM Brasil’s engineers will 
attain sound LTE competencies and capabilities.  
Implementation of the LTE network will be done on a city-by-city basis in 
preparation for the Confederations Cup 2013 and Football World Cup 2014 events.

* Nokia Siemens Networks’ industry-leading intelligent SON (iSON) is hybrid 
architecture-based network-integrated automation residing both in the 
distributed network elements and in the OSS. This ensures that all areas of 
SON, including self-configuration, self-optimization and self-healing, are 
addressed efficiently in an unparalleled way, using the highest level of 
automation and the richest set of features commercially available today.  
At the core of iSON is the Nokia Siemens Networks’ market leading 
multi-technology, multi-vendor NetAct network management system and Flexi 
Multiradio Base Station supported by core network solutions. The iSON bypasses 
time-consuming manual processes in network operations to improve operational 
efficiency and network performance. This is done through automatic, always 
optimal network settings for handover processes, traffic load balancing and 
self-healing for secure uninterrupted end-user services coupled with minimizing 
the need for drive tests. It also helps operators introduce new technologies 
and expand networks faster with automated site creation.
