DT and Ericsson sign microwave deal

31 Aug 2007

Swedish vendor Ericsson and German incumbent Deutsche Telekom (DT) have inked a six-year contract covering the operation and maintenance of DT’s microwave network in Germany. Around 200 employees will be transferred from DT’s fixed network subsidiary T-Com to Ericsson, which will then take responsibility for DT’s microwave-based links, including planning, deployment, operation and field services. T-Com will then buy back capacity from Ericsson as part of the ongoing ‘managed services’ contract.
