Ericsson Nikola Tesla Launched LTE in Armenia

  Categories: Agreements Projects

As we have already reported, Ericsson Nikola Tesla and Armenian operator Ucom contracted LTE delivery in March this year. Advanced LTE network has now been deployed in the capital city of Yerevan.

The launch of this network, based on Ericsson's state-of-the-art multi-standard radio equipment and best-in-class Antenna Integrated Radio (AIR) system, will meet Armenia's rapid-growing data traffic and ensure a higher quality, higher speeds and advanced applications to Armenian citizens. On the basis of real-time analytics, Ericsson Expert Analytics software suite enables Ucom to enhance the customers’ experience, predict the level of their satisfaction and automatically take necessary actions to improve it. Owing to the abovementioned solutions, not only is Ucom's 4G+ network one of the fastest in Transcaucasia, but also meets growing expectations of end-users.
Fast delivery of this advanced network would not be possible without the work of Ericsson Nikola Tesla’s dedicated experts on such a demanding export project.

“We are proud to announce the launch of this highly innovative solution, which will enable our customers to enjoy better broadband internet connection at the speed of up to 250 Mb/sec, just like the users of the world’s most advanced telecom markets do. With the growing expectations from our customers we are happy to deliver smoother experiences and to keep pace with the advanced companies of the world,” said Hayk Yesayan, the CEO at Ucom, at a special event held in Yerevan on the occasion of launching advanced LTE network.
Gordana Kovačević, President of Ericsson Nikola Tesla, said: “We are proud that together with Ucom we are bringing to Armenia state-of-the-art LTE Advanced technology, which had not been previously deployed on this market. By launching this network, Ericsson and Ucom will expand mobile broadband coverage in Armenia, and provide fast and reliable mobile Internet to an even bigger number of subscribers. We believe this is an important step in our presence on the Armenian market, and we look forward to continuing to support the further development of Armenian mobile industry”.
Ericsson is a worldwide market leader in LTE with more than 200 LTE RAN contracts in over 100 countries and over 500 thousand radio base stations in commercial operation.
