TeliaSonera Picks Ericsson and Huawei for LTE Rollout

Anticipating a commercial 4G service launch in 2010, TeliaSonera has selected Ericsson for the initial 4G city network in Stockholm and Huawei for the initial 4G city network in Oslo. An evaluation of suppliers for TeliaSonera's 4G networks in the Nordic and Baltic countries is still in progress. TeliaSonera's 4G/LTE system is based on 3GPP standards for Long Term Evolution (LTE) radio technology and System Architecture Evolution (SAE) core technology. Financial terms were not disclosed.


Ericsson noted that this contract represents its first for commercial deployment of LTE. Ericsson is supplying TeliaSonera with an LTE system (4G), including LTE Radio Base stations, which are part of the new RBS6000 series, an Evolved Packet Core network and mobile backhaul solution including Redback's SmartEdge 1200 routers and the latest EDA multi-access aggregation switch. The LTE system is based on 3GPP standards for Long Term Evolution (LTE) radio technology and System Architecture Evolution (SAE) core technology. Ericsson will also perform network implementation services and will manage the network during the initial operation period. The agreement also includes a long-standing partnership where both parties will jointly evolve the way consumers use mobile broadband with LTE.


Huawei said it will supply an environmentally friendly end-to-end LTE solution including LTE base stations, core network and OSS (Operating Support System) covering Oslo. Huawei also provides services including network design, implementation, systems integration and support.
