As part of the agreement, Ericsson will provide services including, network design, implementation, systems integration and support.
Ericsson’s Mobile-PBN solution delivers proven IP infrastructure optimized to accommodate broadband packet-data traffic growth. Deployment has started and is scheduled for completion before the end of the year.
A key feature of Ericsson’s Mobile-PBN solution is advanced router technology from Redback Networks, an Ericsson company. The Redback SmartEdge router platform is the only multi-access edge router that employs a single network box to deliver any combination of data, voice and video services across both fixed and mobile networks. It will enable T-Mobile Slovakia to deliver reliable and predictable performance for real-time voice and broadband services.
Farshid Ebrahimi-Ghajar, CTO at T-Mobile Slovakia, says: "Ericsson’s technology leadership and end-to-end capabilities will enable T-Mobile Slovakia to increase network capacity for delivery of high-quality multimedia services. We are delighted to partner with Ericsson in our move toward a next-generation all-IP network."
Staffan Henriksson, President of Ericsson Slovakia, says: "This landmark project reaffirms our close cooperation with T-Mobile Slovakia and underscores our continuing successful relationship. Ericsson’s solution will help T-Mobile Slovakia increase network efficiency and offer the latest multimedia services cost-effectively to its subscribers." [December 11, 2008]
