Finnish telecommunication operator Elisa has selected Ericsson to deliver WCDMA/HSPA network equipment, to double its coverage and capacity.
Ericsson’s HSPA solution provides increased data speeds by introducing enhancements in the uplink and the downlink. The advanced technology boosts network capacity and cuts response times for interactive services, increasing the performance of mobile broadband.
By the end of the year, more than 120 towns and cities will have 3G coverage, strengthening Elisa’s position as a leading Finnish 3G/HSPA network operator and service provider.
The contract also covers support services, deployment, integration and educational services.
Janne Laitala, president of Ericsson Finland, said: We are proud to be selected by Elisa to expand its HSPA radio network, and in this way contribute to bringing faster mobile broadband to a greater number of Finnish consumers. This contract further emphasizes Ericsson’s leadership in broadband.
