Ericsson, the main supplier of Korek Telecom, has been selected with its strategic partner Cisco, to transform the Iraqi operator's IP core network. The two vendors will use their integrated solutions to deploy new sites and optimize existing ones, as part of the Ericsson Evolved IP Network.
The network modernization project will be backed by Ericsson's services organization and will see the deployment of Cisco's ASR 9000 routers. Upon completion, Korek Telecom will be able to better serve its subscribers with broader coverage and an enhanced user experience, said Ericsson.
The Ericsson Evolved IP Network is designed to manage end-to-end IP network performance and quality of service, enabling operators to take full advantage of what IP based products can offer in terms of functionality and cost of ownership.
