Gone with the Wind: Ericsson completes network replacement project with Greek telco

10 Feb 2014

Greek full-service alternative telecoms operator Wind Hellas has announced the completion of a one-year transformation and network evolution project to modernise its Mobile Packet Core network in partnership with Swedish technology provider Ericsson. The installation of a modern multi-access Evolved Packet Core network including Ericsson’s Evolved Packet Gateway was a major part of the process, whilst Ericsson also acted as the lead systems integrator on the project. As part of the transformation, legacy packet network systems have been replaced, and all subscribers have been migrated to a single multifunctional platform. According to a press release, this brings significant advantages to Wind Hellas in terms of mobile broadband service monetisation, and will enable new innovative data offers and promotions to enhance users’ satisfaction and therefore limit subscriber churn, while significantly simplifying operations and lowering costs. Wind Hellas will benefit from the reduced operational costs of a multi-access packet architecture that supports 2G, 3G and 4G subscribers with faster data speeds across the network.
