Under the framework agreement with China Mobile, Ericsson will be one of the main suppliers of core and radio network equipment, along with related technical support and services, to expand GSM/GPRS coverage and capacity in 19 regions across China.

Ericsson will also provide power-saving features that will reduce energy consumption in mobile networks and contribute to reducing carbon-dioxide emissions.

Under the agreement with China Unicom, Ericsson will be the main supplier and help expand GSM networks in 10 regions across China, including Beijing where Ericsson has previously not been a supplier. Ericsson will also supply multimedia solutions for WAP services to help provide new multimedia services and applications.

Carl-Henric Svanberg, president and CEO of Ericsson, said: Ericsson is continuously committed to supporting China’s rapidly expanding telecom industry with our global expertise and proven competence. The new framework agreements further strengthen Ericsson’s position as the leading mobile communications supplier in the Chinese market.
