Ericsson to provide Serbia's first 3G network

Ericsson has signed a contract with Serbia's state-owned operator Telekom Srbija to provide the Balkan country with its first 3G network, an AFP report said.

'Ericsson is honored to have been selected by Telekom Srbija for the supply of the first commercial 3G network in the Serbian market,' Bo Andersson, Ericsson Serbia chief, was quoted as saying.

The financial details of the contract were not disclosed, the AFP report said.

The new network, using W-CDMA technology, would be connected to Telekom Srbija's existing core network, which was also supplied by Ericsson, the AFP report said.
