Ericsson to modernise Digi mobile network

Wednesday 15 November 2017 | 12:35 CET | News
Ericsson said it was contracted by Romania's RCS&RDS to modernise its mobile network. Ericsson will swap out the existing vendor to deploy the latest 5G-enabled and Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) ready radio equipment across the operator's network, focusing on the capital Bucharest and other cities. The scope of the contract covers access nodes based on Ericsson Radio System (ERS), Ericsson's flagship radio system platform that will enable both 3G and 4G/LTE services while preparing the network for evolution to 5G.
