Press release  |  Nov 15, 2006 05:06 (GMT +00:00)

PT Telekomunikasi Selular Indonesia (Telkomsel) has awarded Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) an expanded area of responsibility for managed services in Indonesia. Ericsson will broaden its comprehensive services offering in the country to managing the operations of Telkomsel's multivendor 3G/WCDMA network.

Ericsson will expand its managed services responsibility to include Telkomsel's operation, management and maintenance of a third-party radio access network in Bali, Nusa Tenggara, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, and Papua.

Bengt Thornberg, president of PT Ericsson Indonesia, said: "We are very honored to be awarded this expanded scope in our  managed services agreement with Telkomsel. This certainly reinforces the strong partnership between us."
