Ericsson signs three-year contract to augment True’s 4G rollout

18 Mar 2016

Ericsson has signed a three-year frame contract with Thailand’s True Corp (operating mobile services under the ‘True Move H’ band) ‘to enhance further rollout’ of LTE-Advanced Carrier Aggregation (LTE-A CA) and 2G/3G networks on 900MHz/1800MHz/2100MHz spectrum in north, central-west and southern Thailand, the Swedish vendor announced in a press release. As part of the contract, Ericsson will deploy its multi-standard radio equipment using the new Ericsson Radio System and RBS 6000 base station family for macro and small cells. Ericsson indoor small cell solutions include the Radio Dot System for medium and large buildings, and the RBS 6402 Indoor Picocell for smaller buildings. True won 900MHz and 1800MHz technology-neutral licences in Q4 2015 to augment its existing commercial 4G LTE 2100MHz network covering 80% of the Thai population, and is now aiming to rapidly deploy 97% LTE-A multi-band coverage.
