Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERICY) has been selected by TOT Public Company Limited (TOT), Thailand's leading fixed-line operator, to deliver its EDA solution to provide high performance broadband services to subscribers across the country.
With this contract, TOT becomes the first operator in Thailand to deploy IP MSAN (Multi Service Access Node), which will be integrated into the operator's existing nationwide network architecture. This will allow TOT to provide its customers with an ultra-high speed broadband connection of up to 24Mbps.
By deploying an all-IP network, TOT will be able to meet increased subscriber demands for faster speed and superior quality of services in a cost-efficient way and through a future-proof investment.
Hans O. Karlsson, President Ericsson Thailand, says: "We are proud to support TOT in its move towards an all-IP network and in their efforts to provide broadband services at unprecedented speed to consumers in Thailand. This is very much in line with Ericsson's aim to bring broadband connectivity to everyone over fixed and mobile networks."
Under the agreement, Ericsson will provide TOT with a comprehensive portfolio of services, which includes supply, delivery, installation, integration, staff training, testing and commissioning of Ericsson's IP-MSAN for ADSL2+ (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line).
Being Ericsson's first IP-MSAN contract with a new customer following the acquisition of Marconi earlier this year, this contract demonstrates Ericsson's strength in offering an integrated broadband network portfolio.
Ericsson is shaping the future of Mobile and Broadband Internet communications through its continuous technology leadership. Providing innovative solutions in more than 140 countries, Ericsson is helping to create the most powerful communication companies in the world.
