Ericsson and TelstraClear Build Mobile Broadband Network in New Zealand

By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributing Editor

Ericsson will build and integrate TelstraClear’s 3G/WCDMA/HSPA high-speed mobile broadband network in Tauranga, New Zealand.

On a turnkey basis, Ericsson (News - Alert) will build TelstraClear’s network, provide network design, and be responsible for deployment and integration services, including packet core, radio network and service layer.

The network will use 3G/WCDMA and HSPA technology and will be launched in mid-2007.

Using HSPA technology, TelstraClear will deliver true broadband speeds to laptops and PCs. The company can now introduce its customers to a new generation of mobile broadband services, including mobile TV and video, and music-related services, with true mobility.

Ericsson’s service aware packet core solution will deliver telecom-quality broadband services allowing TelstraClear to increase average revenue per user and reduce churn.

TelstraClear Chief Executive Dr Allan Freeth said in a press release that Ericsson’s appointment will enable them to leverage off its comprehensive work with their shareholder Telstra in Australia.

Ericsson was reportedly selected by Telstra in Australia in December 2004, as its exclusive 3G/WCDMA partner for the next five years.

“Ericsson has been the prime integrator and business partner for TelstraClear’s world-class IP network for some years,” said General Manager for Ericsson New Zealand Steve Inglis.”

He continued: “This new, exclusive contract and the work we are doing with Telstra in Australia are a reflection of the strength of Ericsson's capabilities and global leadership in mobile technology, broadband offerings and services.”

Ericsson claims that in future, its HSPA solution will allow operators more than double their system capacity and cut response times for interactive services.

Last week, PT Excelcomindo Pratama Tbk selected Ericsson to build its 3G/WCDMA network in Indonesia. Ericsson will provide higher data rates and enhance the end-user experience through High-Speed Packet Access.

Ericsson will also supply its Mobile Softswitch Solution for nationwide deployment, as well as business consulting services.
