The telecom operator Telenor Group and communications service provider Ericsson have inked a five-year deal to enhance the network capabilities of the operator in Thailand, Bangladesh and Myanmar.
The deal will transform the 4G/LTE network for dtac, 3G/2G networks of Grameenphone, and 2G/3G networks of Telenor Myanmar, the three service providers, which are a part of Telenor Group. “Ericsson’s 3G and 4G/LTE network solutions will enable dtac, Telenor Myanmar and Grameenphone to deliver unique experiences for people, business and society, thus shaping and accelerating the Networked Society in Thailand, Bangladesh and Myanmar,” Sam Saba, Head of Region South East Asia and Oceania, Ericsson said.
The deal includes the enhancement of software, hardware and services. Hence, Ericsson will deploy RBS 6000, Ericsson’s multi-standard radio base station that supports 3G and 4G /LTE in a single cabinet. It will also improve the coverage in the indoor environments by installing indoor small cell solutions, including the Radio Dot System and RBS 6402. In selected outdoor spaces, Ericsson will install the micro radio base station RBS 6501 adding additional capacity and seamless mobility in those areas.
