Airtel selects Ericsson for 4G network in Gabon

Bharti Airtel  selected Swedish gear maker as a supplier for its LTE (Long Term Evolution) 4G (fourth generation) network in Africa’s Gabon.
The deal also includes transformation of the existing mobile radio access and core network infrastructure, the two companies said in a joint statement, which didn’t give financial details.

LTE 4G technology that offers high-speed data services will enable Airtel Gabon to deliver a superior mobile broadband experience to their customers.
Ericsson will install its multi-standard radio base station— RBS 6000, which supports GSM/ EDGE, WCDMA/HSPA, and LTE in a single cabinet.

“Mobile broadband data is a key driver for economic growth in Gabon. The LTE launch will ensure our customers have the highest speeds and best experience available,” Christian de Faria, Chief Executive, Bharti Airtel Africa said.

The existing deal will cover supply of equipment and software and a range of professional services, including project management, systems integration and support.

Ericsson’s end-to-end LTE network includes an upgrade of the packet core network to a multi-access evolved packet core, supporting 2G, 3G and LTE technologies.

“With this agreement, we further strengthen our long term strategic business relationship with Airtel by supporting them in meeting their commitment to excellent services to their subscribers in Gabon,” Fredrik Jejdling, Ericsson President, Sub-Saharan Africa said.
