Ericsson confirms multi-year deal to upgrade Wind Tre's Radio Access Network

Friday 6 July 2018 | 08:48 CET | News
Ericsson has been awarded a contract to modernise the Radio Access Network (RAN) of Italian operator Win Tre across the country, confirming earlier reports that China's ZTE had lost part of the deal due to a US ban. The multi-year RAN transformation contract will see the implementation of the Ericsson Radio System (ERS) product portfolio into Win Tre's network starting October 2018, including new ERS radios and basebands to improve network quality and user experience for the company's 31 million customers.
