Ericsson has signed a five year contract with Telenor Group for the design and implementation of 4G LTE networks and the transformation of existing 2G and 3G networks in Thailand, Bangladesh and Myanmar.
The agreement includes hardware, software and services. Ericsson will install its multi-standard radio base station, the RBS 6000, which supports 3G and 4G/LTE in a single cabinet. Indoor small cell solutions will also be deployed.
In addition, micro radio base station RBS 6501 will also add extra capacity and mobility in selected outdoor spaces.
The transformation will improve network capacity and enhance mobile broadband experiences for dtac (4G/LTE), Grameenphone (2G/3G) and Telenor Myanmar (2G/3G) subscribers.
Sam Saba, Head of Region South East Asia and Oceania, Ericsson, says: "This contract clearly demonstrates Ericsson's technology and services leadership, and further extends our long-standing relationship with Telenor Group."
