Ericsson today announced a new agreement with Etisalat Egypt to transform the telecom operator’s radio network for a full range of converged information and telecom services that will improve quality and speed of services to its subscribers.

As part of the deployment, Ericsson will provide Etisalat Egypt with its latest RBS 6000 radio base station technology. This will enable energy-efficient and cost-effective operations while allowing the operator to meet the demands of its growing subscriber base with better and faster mobile internet connectivity and quality mobile coverage throughout the country. It will enable Etisalat Egypt to prepare the network for LTE (4G).

As a multi-standard base station, the RBS 6000 will minimise Etisalat Egypt’s operational expenses and reduce environmental impact but will also ensure smooth transitions and upgrades to new technologies in the future. Deployment of the latest Ericsson technology will also allow development of new, high-speed mobile broadband services and web applications.
