Ericsson and Umniah collaborate for network expansion in Jordan

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) and Umniah have recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for expanding the 3G and 4G network in major cities in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

Ericsson will provide future-proof Ericsson Radio System products and solutions, which are flexible to changing demands with multi-band and multi-layer technology. The expansion uses 10 megahertz (MHz) of the spectrum, including 5MHz refarmed from 3G to 4G and an additional 5MHz acquired, allowing for increased network capacity.

With the expansion, network coverage will be extended through additional sectors thereby providing 4G in areas where it is currently unavailable. The additional spectrum and upgraded infrastructure will enable Umniah to handle more data traffic and cater to the growing demand for mobile broadband services and enhanced and faster connectivity.

Faisal Qamhiyah, Chief Executive Officer of Umniah, says: “We aim to significantly improve our network capacity, expand network coverage, and deliver superior user experience for our customers. Entering into this agreement with Ericsson supports us in reaching a wider population and helps us in meeting the growing demand in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.”

Kevin Murphy, Vice President and Head of Ericsson Levant Countries and Country Manager of Ericsson Jordan, says: "We are happy to enter into this agreement with Umniah to benefit from our advanced technology and expertise for delivering an enhanced network experience in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. This agreement drives further growth in Jordan’s market and underscores our commitment to supporting the evolution of the telecommunications landscape in the country."

Ericsson Radio System delivers the industry's leading energy-efficient and compact radio solution while maintaining performance leadership. The flexibility inherent in the architecture is made possible by targeted software deployment, which enables fast and efficient rollout of new capabilities by future-proof and sustainable networks.
