Ericsson has announced that it has been selected by ArmenTel as supplier and systems integrator of an IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) solution. Under the agreement, the Swedish equipment vendor will transform the Armenian telco’s existing fixed network into an IMS-based, fixed and mobile convergent network. Ericsson will also provide a wide range of professional services, including consulting and support. Dmitry Pleskonos, Vice President of VimpelCom, ArmenTel’s parent, said: ‘We are glad that long-term cooperation with Ericsson as mobile systems supplier served as a basis for the extension of our partnership in such an important area as mobile-fixed convergence, where we see great potential. Ericsson’s advanced end-to-end solution will allow our subscribers to enjoy a wide range of hi-end telecom services.’
