Bouygues Telecom partners with Ericsson to transform its 2G/3G radio networks

Ericsson expects that this alliance would strengthen their presence in radio access networks in France

By CBR Staff Writer

French mobile phone and Internet service provider company Bouygues Telecom has selected Ericsson to transform its existing second- and third-generation (2G and 3G) radio networks, to improve network performance as data traffic increases and more people move into French cities.

In addition, the contract also unveils a fourth-generation network, or 4G/LTE (Long Term Evolution), combined with a comprehensive package of services ranging from design, integration, rollout, to customer support.

The new project will be based on Ericsson RBS 6000 multi-standard equipment for the populous regions Île de France, Centre-Alpes and Méditerranée.

With this project, Bouygues Telecom will benefit from better operational and energy efficiency and it would result in delivering a further enhanced user experience, higher quality of service and faster connection speeds for the operator’s 12m subscribers.

Bouygues Telecom CEO Olivier Roussat said Ericsson has proven its ability to manage large-scale network projects with Bouygues in the past.

"This project will enable us to deliver a high level of service and further enhance the experience of people who use our 2G, 3G, and LTE technologies," said Roussat.
