Ericsson Chosen By Melita For 5G Strategy Inplementation
Melita is modernizing its mobile network with 5G-ready multi-standard solutions. As it moves towards 5G, Melita has selected Ericsson to bring an improved network performance and experience to subscribers.
Ericsson will supply its flagship solution, the Ericsson Radio System (ERS), while modernizing 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.
“We are committed to providing the residents and businesses of Malta with the best possible mobile connectivity,” Simon Montanaro, chief technology officer, Melita, says. “Our strategic goal is to stay at the forefront of customer experience and Ericsson is the best suited partner to address these requirements.”
“Staying at the forefront of customer experience is of the utmost importance for our customers. By deploying 5G-ready, radio access network infrastructure we embark on a new chapter in our long-term partnership with Melita,” Arun Bansal, head of market area Europe and Latin America and senior vice president, Ericsson, says.
Ericsson Radio System enables mobile operators to address growth opportunities and transform their radio networks by leveraging a multi-standard, multi-band, and multi-layer architecture, delivering performance on the smallest site footprint with the lowest energy consumption.
Ericsson Radio System supports 5G New Radio (NR) capability through remote software installation, enabling migration to 5G in existing bands, as well as fast coverage expansion of 5G services for operators.
