Melita chooses Ericsson as strategic 5G partner

Tuesday 27 March 2018 | 22:13 CET | News
Melita selected Ericsson as its strategic partner for its upgrade to 5G technology. Ericsson will supply its flagship platform, the Ericsson Radio System (ERS), while modernising and expanding the virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) which is deployed on Ericsson BSP 8100 and Ericsson Cloud Execution Environment. This will give Melita the flexibility it needs to meet a growing demand for new 5G and IoT use cases.
