3 Italia Selects Ericsson for Upgrade

3 Italia has selected Ericsson to transform and upgrade its existing 3G mobile broadband access, core and transport network to 42Mbps HSPA and 100Mbps LTE. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The deal marks another step in the long-standing collaboration between 3 Italia and Ericsson, which started in 2001 when 3 Italia chose Ericsson as the main partner for its 3G core and access technology. In 2005, the operator assigned Ericsson as exclusive partner for managed services of its multi-vendor network and telecom IS/IT infrastructure. In 2009, 3 Italia awarded Ericsson a network transformation deal to upgrade its WCDMA/HSPA network and extend the managed services deal.
