Ericsson Awarded Maintenance Contract for Telefónica Brasil

Ericsson announced a three-year contract to supervise and provide preventive and corrective maintenance services for Telefónica's fiber network in São Paulo state, beginning in April 2008. Ericsson said the new agreement will allow Telefónica to reduce costs and streamline network management and operations. It will enable shorter time to market for new services while ensuring customers that these are first rate.

Ericsson noted that it has won more than 100 managed services contracts with operators worldwide since 2002, and that it now supports networks that handle more than one billion subscribers worldwide.
