T-Mobile Netherlands Selects Ericsson for Network Management

T-Mobile Netherlands has signed a four-year strategic-partnership contract under which Ericsson will continue to manage end-to-end network operations for the former Orange network. The agreement follows T-Mobile's acquisition of Orange in the Netherlands. Ericsson will also take on responsibility for streamlining T-Mobile Netherlands' overall network infrastructure by dismantling the former Orange mobile networks.

Ericsson will step up the expansion of T-Mobile Netherlands' WCDMA network, including the building and acquisition of more than 900 new sites by 2010. Ericsson will also deliver more than 2000 MINI-LINK microwave transmission units to help boost capacity and to enable the efficient handling of packet data in T-Mobile's transmission network.
