Three U.S. wireless providers select Ericsson to provide and manage

Monday 26 January 2004 10:27 CET | News

Ericsson has signed managed services contracts with three individual rural market operators to migrate their TDMA wireless networks to GSM. According to the agreements, Ericsson will manage and providecore network capacity on demand to each operator.

By choosing this strategy, Missouri-based Chariton Valley Wireless Services, Pennsylvania-based Indigo Wireless and Georgia-based PSC Wireless will each be able to deploy a full-featured GSM network with more flexibility, and less capital and operational expense than traditional buildouts. Under the terms of the agreements, each customer has purchased and will operate its own radio access network. Each operator will use Ericssons supplied core network capacity to provide switching services and data capabilities, which initially will include GPRS, voice mail and SMS. The arrangements eliminate core facility concerns such as power, site leasing and facility maintenance.
