Ericsson signs three-year managed services contract with China Unicom

Fixed network and transmission services

By CBR Staff Writer

Ericsson has signed a three-year contract with Anhui Unicom, a provincial company of China Unicom, to provide fixed network and transmission services.

Under the contract, Ericsson will take care of the maintenance work of Anhui Unicom’s base station sites, fixed network and transmission.

The company said that the field maintenance agreement covers five major cities of China’s eastern Anhui province including Wuhu, Xuancheng, Bengbu, Chuzhou, and the province capital city Hefei.

Anhui is the eighth most populated province in China and has a mobile penetration of around 50%.

Anhui Unicom general manager Li Chao said the company and Ericsson have been strategic partners for many years and they have a very high opinion of Ericsson’s expertise in all aspects.

"We believe that Ericsson will extend its successful managed services business model and world-leading capabilities to Anhui and help us improve our network efficiency, lower operational cost, and fulfil our commitment to the consumers," Chao said.
