Ericsson has recently signed a five-year contract with Telenor Group for the design and implementation of 4G/LTE networks and the transformation of existing 2G and 3G networks in Thailand, Bangladesh and Myanmar.

Ericsson will install its multi-standard radio base station, the RBS 6000, which supports 3G and 4G/LTE in a single cabinet. Indoor small cell solutions will also be deployed, including the Radio Dot System and RBS 6402 to address the requirement of reliable mobility, security and performance in challenging indoor environments. In addition, micro radio base station RBS 6501 will also add extra capacity and seamless mobility in selected outdoor spaces.

Operators such as Telenor Group are looking to enable digital transformation of societies by extending internet connectivity to as many people as possible, said Ericsson.
