E-Plus Group join hands with Ericsson

The E-Plus Group has extended its existing exclusive partnership with Ericsson to transform its mobile backhaul infrastructure to all-IP.

Mobile backhaul transformation caters for expected future mobile data traffic increase and better performance for consumers.

The mobile backhaul transformation is an important cornerstone in the German operator’s mobile broadband strategy. On top of the IP RAN transformation, Ericsson will also transform the Germany-wide microwave network, which will be migrated to all-IP in the mid-term using MINI-LINK long- and short-haul products.

Gerhard Lüdtke, director, Access Network, E-Plus Group said, “E-Plus will continue to strengthen its mobile backhaul network to provide a superior user experience to its subscribers and to position E-Plus as a leading player in the growing LTE market space.”

Stefan Koetz, managing director, Ericsson Germany said, “Operators that are upgrading their mobile networks to high-speed HSPA Evolved or LTE need to connect their radio access sites with high-capacity backhaul technologies with flexible packet capabilities, such as phase and time synchronization, to their core network. This will ensure superior user experience for services such as mobile video, mobile music, internet browsing and other mobile data applications.”

Ericsson has over 40 years of microwave experience with more than 2.9 million radio units delivered to over 170 countries. Ericsson is the market leader in microwave transmission, which is the most competitive choice for capacities up to 1 Gbps.
