[Ericsson to replace 10,000 GSM radio base stations in Germany for T-Mobile Germany.]
T-Mobile Germany, the mobile branch of Deutsche Telekom in Germany and one of the largest leading mobile operators in the world, has selected Ericsson as the supplier and integrator for the replacement of 10,000 of T-Mobile's existing GSM radio base stations.
Under the terms of the agreement Ericsson, the leading mobile telecommunications supplier in the world, will replace GSM radio access network equipment by installing and integrating the latest future proof GSM/GPRS technology into T-Mobile's network. By using Ericsson's latest 2G technologies, T-Mobile is well prepared for future upgrades, thus ensuring solid protection of today's investment for tomorrow's technology needs.
The requirements for the replacement of large part of a mobile network are demanding. The challenge is not only the systems integration and related services, but also to undertake the operation without causing disturbance in the service quality for the customers of T-Mobile. Approximately 10,000 of T-Mobile's current GSM radio base stations will be replaced to step-by-step modernize the mobile network while it remains in operation.
The replacement operation begins in January 2005 and is to be completed in 3 years time.
