Malaysian pay-TV provider MiTV Corp has contracted Ericsson to build, manage and maintain its nationwide W-CDMA network. Under the agreement, Ericsson will provide MiTV with a complete W-CDMA core and radio network, including microwave transmission, multimedia solutions and related services. The agreement also includes a managed services contract which will see Ericsson manage and maintain MiTV’s network. The 3G network will be enabled with so-called ‘3.5G’ High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) technology. MiTV won its 3G concession in March this year. The value of the deal was not disclosed.
