Ericsson bags Chinese contracts worth $1.8bn

Both agreements to be implemented during 2010

By CBR Staff Writer

Swedish telecoms equipment firm Ericsson has signed 2G/3G frame agreements with Chinese operators China Mobile and China Unicom valued at $1.8bn, with both expected to be implemented during 2010.

Under the $1bn contract with China Mobile, Ericsson will provide a radio access network including a multi-standard radio base station RBS 6000 and mobile soft-switching technology, to boost the capacity of the network and evolve it into an IP network. Ericsson said that such offerings will also help China Mobile to achieve their energy saving goals.

In deal worth $800m with China Unicom, Ericsson will provide a 3G network with HSPA technology and will also expand cooperation in the area of IP and broadband, supplying IP routers, fibre access technologies GPON and 40G WDM as well as IP multimedia subsystem (IMS).

Mats Olsson, head of Ericsson Greater China, said: The signing of the significant frame agreements is a manifestation of our continued strong cooperation with our Chinese customers. We are confident that we will do an even better job in supplying the latest technology and best-in-class services in time to support Chinese operators in fulfilling the demand of this tremendous market growth.”
