Ericsson and Pannon GSM sign UMTS contract in Hungary

Friday 21 January 2005 07:54 CET | News

Ericsson was selected as supplier to build the first phase of the 3G mobile network for Telenor subsidiary, Pannon GSM. Under the contract, Ericsson will provide the infrastructure of the UMTS-based mobile system.

Cooperation between the two companies will enable Pannon GSM to continue to lead the mobile data evolution in Hungary. Pannon customers in Budapest will be able to enjoy the benefits of the 3G network in the second half of 2005. The network will be rolled out to other parts of Hungary in late 2005 and early 2006. Pannon and Ericsson signed a contract also on the modernization of Pannons GSM EDGE network. The UMTS radio network delivered by Ericsson is a future proof solution since it is already prepared for the migration to HSDPA (high-speed downlink packet access), the next evolution in 3G. Today the network already allows 384 kbit per second data rate for best quality and functionality of services and applications like video telephony, video streaming and high-speed data download.
