Ericsson bags deal from Telenor Sweden to upgrade core network


Telecom network supplier Ericsson today announced its five-year deal with Telenor Sweden to upgrade the operator’s core network.

The deal for telecom network upgradation will enable Telenor Sweden to offer voice over LTE (VoLTE), HD voice, and Wi-Fi calling to improve customer experience.

Telenor Sweden, which has two and a half million mobile subscribers, will kick off the rollout in the third quarter of 2015.

With the latest deal, Telenor aims to upgrade its user data subscriber architecture to a more secure, reliable and simpler structure.

Stefan Javerbring, CTO of Telenor Sverige, said: “The flexibility and scalability of the services deployed is just as important as their performance, and we believe this will provide an excellent platform for Telenor as we build Sweden’s leading mobile network.”

The deal includes Ericsson IMS to enable voice over LTE, Wi-Fi calling and Rich Communications Services, Wi-Fi Mobility Gateway, User Data Consolidation, Mobile Softswitch Solution, and related system integration services.
