Ericsson chosen by Telstra to supply 3G network

Ericsson was named as the exclusive 3G/WCDMA vendor to Telstra for up to the next five years. The estimated value of the framework agreement is more than US$78 million (A$100 million) over the term. Ericsson will supply layered architecture core and radio access network equipment, including HSDPA and network rollout services.

These contracts complement the Telstra-Hutchison 3GSM network sharing arrangement which gives Telstra access to a fully optimized, fully operational network across five capital cities from 1 July 2005.

In Australia, Ericsson also supplies and delivers the integrated infrastructure for the Hutchison 3G Australia network, 3.
