STOCKHOLM-L.M. Ericsson said it has signed separate deals with operators in the United States, Switzerland and Nigeria.
With operator Econet Wireless Nigeria, the vendor signed a $110 million GSM expansion contract to cover such cities as Lagos, Port Harcourt, Abuja and Kaduna.
With Alltel, Ericsson said it integrated, hosted and managed the carrier’s Axcess picture-messaging service throughout its CDMA coverage area. Alltel said it has brought the services to market because of the vendor’s services.
Ericsson also said Orange Communications S.A. of Switzerland has chosen it to provide field services for half of its GSM network.
