Egypt’s Mobinil selects Ericsson for network upgrade
Five-year project to cover mobile broadband, enhance delivery of data services
Egyptian mobile operator Mobinil has selected Swedish telecoms vendor Ericsson to upgrade the carrier's domestic network infrastructure, so it can enhance its data services.
As part of the five-year agreement, Ericsson will draw upon its workforce both in Egypt and across the Middle East to design and integrate the various nodes of its Packet Core solution.
High-end mobile broadband is one of the pillars of Ericsson's so-called Networked Society framework.
"The successful implementation of this important project is a sign of the long-term sustainability of our investments in Mobinil network," said Mobinil CEO Yves Gauthier.
"By providing Mobinil with the latest in packet core technology, we are proudly assisting the people of Egypt to enter the Networked Society," said Rafiah Ibrahim head of Ericsson's Region Middle East. "Our belief is that customer experience through state-of-the-art technology is the key to differentiation for operators to succeed in competitive markets, such as Egypt, and we look forward to the continued growth of our partnership."
