Rostelecom signs contract with Ericsson to launch mobile, content delivery network

By CBR Staff Writer

Russian mobile operator Rostelecom has signed a contract with Ericsson to launch a new mobile and content delivery network, which will offer its customers greater access to high-speed internet and data transfers.

The partnership will enable Rostelecom’s 43 million households to enjoy converged mobile and fixed services as well as an enhanced video and media content.

Under the terms of the agreement, Ericsson will deliver equipment for the new Rostelecom 2G and 3G networks, including multi-standard RBS 6000 radio base stations, circuit and packet-switched networks with Evolved Packet Core and OSS.

New mobile and content delivery network will be built with Ericsson’s equipment and complete mobile application, including Operations Support Systems (OSS), packet core and radio.

Ericsson will install RBS 6000 base stations that support GSM/EDGE, WCDMA/HSPA and are LTE-ready across 4,000 locations and the network will have a total capacity of 1Tbit per second.

The multi-standard radio base station provides a cost-effective deployment for the next-generation of high-speed mobile broadband, video and web-application services, while providing subscribers with an enhanced user experience.

Rostelecom CTO and vice president Ivan Zima said the new network will enable it to offer users a range of converged information and telecom services in mobile and fixed networks across the country.

"By meeting the demand for anytime connectivity and access to mobile services, we hope that more people will benefit from the positive effects that connectivity brings," Zima said.

Ericsson Region Northern Europe and Central Asia head Robert Puskaric said the application will benefit Rostelecom’s subscribers with improved user experience in terms of content quality and speed.

"It will also benefit the operator in terms of savings in data transmission and bandwidth, and enable revenue-generating opportunities from new video services that the network supports. All this will improve Rostelecom’s competitive edge," Puskaric said.
