Telecom Egypt has signed an agreement with Ericsson today for its international gateway migration using the latest technology that will contribute to improving the quality of its services.
Under this agreement, Ericsson will migrate Telecom Egypt’s international gateway by deploying Ericsson’s Network Functions Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) with Ericsson Orchestrator in order to enhance the quality of fixed and mobile services provided by Telecom Egypt, reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO), and automate Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) paving the way to new business models and enterprise services.
Ericsson will also offer narrowband IoT-enabled software licenses. The project rollout is expected to start by the end of 2020 in the governorates of Cairo and Alexandria as the two main international hubs for Telecom Egypt.
Fadi Pharaon, President of Ericsson Middle East and Africa says: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to work alongside our valued partner Telecom Egypt in accelerating their digital transformation roadmap. We look forward to helping Telecom Egypt in optimizing their operations and automation capabilities. This partnership illustrates our technology leadership in the area of international gateways and we value Telecom Egypt’s confidence in our technology empowering us to operate its network, implement transformative measures, and drive sustainable growth. This encourages us as well to meet and exceed our shared ambitions together.”
