Indonesia's AXIS Outsources Mobile Net Management to Ericsson

AXIS awarded a four-year contract to Ericsson to manage its handle network operations, field maintenance, and support services for its network serving greater Jakarta and Northern Sumatra, Indonesia. Ericsson will support more than 3,000 radio base stations and approximately 8 million AXIS subscribers.

Mats Otterstedt, President of Ericsson Indonesia, says: "Indonesia is an important market for us. Our presence here dates back to 1907 and has played a significant role in the development of the country's telecommunications industry. In 2008, we entered a partnership with AXIS to build, operate and manage its new 3G/WCDMA network in Greater Jakarta. By extending and expanding this deal, we can continue to support AXIS in this rapidly growing market."http://www.ericsson.com

  • AXIS is backed by two prominent operators in Asia, Saudi Telecom Company (STC) and Maxis Communications Berhad (Maxis), the leading mobile communications service provider in Malaysia.
