Korek Telecom taps Ericsson, Cisco to overhaul IP core network

1 Mar 2017

Iraqi mobile operator Korek Telecom has enlisted Swedish vendor Ericsson, and its strategic partner Cisco, to transform its IP core network. The two vendors will use their integrated solutions to deploy new sites and optimise existing ones, as part of the ‘Ericsson Evolved IP Network’ deployment, which guarantees end-to-end IP network performance and quality of service (QoS). The network modernisation project will be backed by Ericsson’s services organisation and will see the deployment of Cisco’s ASR 9000 routers. Upon completion of the upgrade, Korek Telecom notes that it will be able to better serve its subscribers with broader coverage and an enhanced user experience.
