Etisalat Misr selects Ericsson’s heterogeneous network solutions

21 Jul 2014

Egyptian cellco Etisalat Misr has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Sweden’s Ericsson under which the latter will monitor and optimise Etisalat’s network, using its heterogeneous network solutions. With the vendor saying it would use a combination of macro and small cell solutions to address the increase in mobile broadband traffic and elevate service performance, it has claimed such work will also enable Etisalat Misr to address video traffic demand in dense urban environments where it may not be practical to find additional sites for macro cells.

Saeed AlHamli, CEO of Etisalat Misr said of the agreement between the two companies: ‘Our partnership with Ericsson has grown from strength to strength, as we continuously seek to further empower our customers with the highest quality of experience. Mobile broadband traffic in particular is increasing day after day, and Ericsson’s solutions will allow us to successfully address our customers’ demands in a scalable and sustainable manner.’
