Cable&Wireless Outsources GSM Network to Ericsson

Ericsson has been selected as sole supplier to supply and operate a complete GSM mobile network for Cable&Wireless EAUS (Europe, Asia and US) as it launches its new Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) services in the UK. As Cable&Wireless' exclusive managed services partner, Ericsson will also be responsible for running the network for five years. Financial terms were not disclosed.


Under the agreement, Ericsson will supply a complete core and radio-access network, based on small and low-power GSM base stations. The solution is designed to provide indoor fixed and mobile coverage for enterprise users, and allows for seamless roaming between the Cable&Wireless GSM solution and national roaming partners when moving outdoors. Network connectivity is provided by connecting the GSM base stations directly to existing enterprise data networks, using IP network solutions provided by Cable&Wireless. Ericsson will also supply a service-layer network with solutions for service provisioning, SMS and voicemail to enable Cable&Wireless to launch complete FMC services to its customers.
