TIGO selects Ericsson for Its networks in Paraguay, Honduras and Senegal
Ericsson has been selected by Millicom’s TIGO to modernize its radio access networks across Paraguay, Honduras and Senegal in a multi-year deal involving the rollout of Ericsson Radio System.
Swedish company will implement the Ericsson Radio System portfolio into approximately 1,000 of TIGO’s sites with the first phase taking place in Paraguay and Honduras in 2018. Spending earmarked for this important network modernization project was already contemplated in Millicom’s existing investment plans. The new three-year deal in Senegal covers over 1000 existing sites including the latest Ericsson Radio System (ERS) technology to refresh legacy infrastructure, roll out LTE across the country, and modernize and expand Tigo’s mobile backhaul network.
“We listened to TIGO and understood their urgency to have 5G-ready infrastructure to stay at the forefront of customer service in Paraguay and Honduras. Through this partnership, we are deploying our state-of-the-art Ericsson Radio System that offers quicker time to market and superior network performance,” said Arun Bansal, President of Ericsson in Europe and Latin America.
“Ericsson’s best-in-class LTE solutions will secure Tigo’s network performance and quality while delivering a differentiated experience to their subscribers. By improving both indoor and outdoor network coverage, Tigo will be able to deliver digital services including mobile data and mobile financial services across the entire Senegalese market,” stated Rafiah Ibrahim, Head of Ericsson Middle East and Africa.
