Vendor duo Ericsson and Cisco have confirmed that they are working together to supply and install IP routers for Nextel Brasil. The key components in the combined offering include hardware from Cisco, and services and project management from Ericsson. Nextel Brasil notes that its IP network will be strengthened to support traffic growth and improve the performance of its mobile network.
