TeliaSonera, Norway’s second largest mobile operator, has signed a three-year contract with Ericsson to modernise and expand its network for improved coverage and speed.

Under the agreement, Ericsson will modernise and expand the northern part of TeliaSonera’s Norwegian network and roll-out 4G/LTE in the same region.

Ericsson will replace the existing 2G and 3G radio base stations with its multi-standard RBS 6000 developed for GSM/EDGE, WCDMA/HSPA Evolution and LTE.

The company said that Ericsson will provide multi-standard radio base station RBS 6000 and related services including network roll-out, implementation and support.

In addition, the contract also includes Ericsson’s microwave technology MINI-LINK.

TeliaSonera mobility services chief technology officer and senior vice president Claes Nycander said they are building a new world class mobile network in Norway with 2G, 3G and 4G access to offer their customers an enormous coverage and speed improvement.
