TeliaSonera has selected Ericsson for the initial 4G city network in Stockholm and Huawei for the initial 4G city network in Oslo. The 4G services in Stockholm and Oslo are slated for commercial launch in 2010. In Stockholm, Ericsson will perform network implementation services and will manage the network during the initial operation period. The agreement between Ericsson and TeliaSonera also includes a long-standing partnership where both parties will jointly evolve the way consumers use mobile broadband with LTE. The new 4G networks will offer about 10 times higher data rates compared to today’s mobile broadband network. The contract between TeliaSonera and Ericsson is Ericsson’s first for commercial deployment of LTE. Under the agreement with Huawei, the Chinese equipment maker will provide LTE base stations, core network and OSS covering Oslo. Huawei will also provide services including network design, implementation, systems integration and support.
