Ericsson wins GSM order from C&W

Ericsson won an order to supply and operate a GSM mobile network for Cable & Wireless as the UK-based firm launches a new service in Britain, a Reuters report said.

'Under the agreement, Ericsson will supply a complete core and radio-access network, based on small and low-power GSM base stations,' Ericsson, the world's biggest mobile network maker, said in a statement.

'The solution is designed to provide indoor fixed and mobile coverage for enterprise users, and allows for seamless roaming between the Cable & Wireless GSM solution and national roaming partners when moving outdoors.'

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
