Mongolian operator MobiCom has launched a HSPA upgrade, with the network supplied by Ericsson. The launch enables MobiCom to introduce mobile broadband services to its subscribers across Mongolia, starting in the capital Ulaanbaatar where about 40 percent of the country's 3 million inhabitants live.
Under the contract, Ericsson is the sole supplier of the WCDMA/HSPA radio access network. It is also responsible for network deployment and a wide range of professional services, including systems integration of MobiCom's multi-vendor network, support and competence development.
Bolor Dorjnamjil, CEO of MobiCom Corporataion, says: "This launch reflects MobiCom's continuous commitment to offering its subscribers the latest services and applications. MobiCom was the first operator to introduce mobile services in Mongolia and is now launching the country's first mobile broadband services. Ericsson's experience in 2G-3G network deployments and extensive support capacity make it the ideal partner for this project."
Ericsson's cooperation with MobiCom started in 2004 and includes contracts for GSM radio access and transmission.
