Egyptian mobile network operator MobiNil has launched a modern packet core network in cooperation with Swedish vendor Ericsson, Daily News Egypt reports. According to the local news source, the development comes as part of a five-year framework agreement that the two companies inked in August last year. With the modernisation of MobiNil’s core network said to have been carried out with a view to catering for increased demand for mobile broadband services, the cellco’s chief technical officer Yasser Shaker was cited as saying: ‘This latest upgrade of our packer core network is an anticipatory move in light of our expanding customer base and its long-term sustainability. Our continuous investment in our infrastructure is a testament to our continued commitment to our customers.’ Meanwhile, Ericsson Regional Middle East and Africa’s president, Rafiah Ibrahim, said of the development: ‘By transforming MobiNil’s packet core technology, we are supporting an increasingly networked society in Egypt. We believe this will enable MobiNil to provide their customers with improved network speeds and delivery services.’
