Ericsson to supply Orange Egypt with antennas for 2600MHz deployment

23 Jun 2022

Swedish vendor Ericsson has announced that it is supplying Orange Egypt with antennas to support its network rollout. The development follows the allocation of new spectrum in the 2600MHz band in February 2022, and will see the vendor deploying the Ericsson Antenna System to build a 2600MHz network that will improve coverage, capacity, and throughput. According to Ericsson, with better wind load, lesser weight, and high port count integration, the Ericsson antennas will help Orange Egypt significantly reduce operational site expenses.

Ayman Amiri, Chief Technology Officer of Orange Egypt, said of the matter: ‘We always strive to provide the best mobile connectivity services to our customers in the most efficient and effective manner. With residents in Egypt becoming ever more reliant on mobile technology and communications, having an optimal network that offers super-fast speeds and meets user demands becomes crucial. We are confident that collaborating with Ericsson will help us achieve the network capabilities demanded in this fast-growing mobile space and help us roll out faster networks across the nation.’
