with an additional service scope and a two-year term extension
Illustrates Mobilicity's emphasis on enhancing customer experience
The expanded agreement covers network planning, engineering, network
optimization and integration
TORONTO, July 3, 2012 /CNW/ - Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) today announces
the extension and expansion of its managed services agreement with
Mobilicity in Canada. This announcement marks the extension of the
first managed services contract between Ericsson and Mobilicity,
originally signed in 2009 in connection with the rollout of
Mobilicity's network in Canada.
In addition to the current scope, Ericsson will expand its role to also
take responsibility for network planning, engineering, optimization,
customer management as well as integration support for new sites.
Loris Zaia, Executive Vice-President, Ericsson Canada, says: "I am
excited that we are further extending our relationship with Mobilicity.
It reaffirms the high quality of Ericsson's technologies and services
and creates new opportunities for Mobilicity to maximize the value of
its capital expenditures and operating cost to improve capacity,
coverage and ultimately the quality of service for its customers."
Today, Ericsson is the undisputed leader in managed services. In all
current managed services contracts, Ericsson is globally managing
networks that together serve more than 900 million subscribers
worldwide. By teaming up with Ericsson, operators can strengthen their
competitive edge through improved network availability and capacity,
while reducing their operating costs. This, in turn, increases market
growth for mobile services, which helps improve the quality of services
and the end-user experience.
