Ericsson switch key to NewCore's rural LTE offering

NewCore Wireless said it activated an Ericsson network switch, which will provide LTE services for rural mobile operators in Kansas, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota and Wisconsin. NewCore, a hosted wireless technology provider based in Minnesota, announced in December that it planned to deploy an Ericsson Evolved Packet Core LTE solution along with Ericsson's LTE radio access network gear. "We're committed to making 4G service available to as many people, as quickly as possible," said Roger Schmitz, NewCore CFO. "We're setting the pace for the delivery of 4G in rural areas currently not covered." The company launched its hosted GSM/WCDMA network four years ago. For more information, see this NewCore release.
