The contract also includes Ericsson’s digital services like dynamic orchestration, business support systems (BSS), and Ericsson Cloud Core, which will allow T-Mobile to efficiently come up with innovative and groundbreaking 5G experiences for customers.
“We have recently decided to increase our investments in the US to be closer to our leading customers and better support them with their accelerated 5G deployments; thereby bringing 5G to life for consumers and enterprises across the country” said Niklas Heuveldop, President and Head of Ericsson North America. He continues “This agreement marks a major milestone for both companies. We are excited about our partnership with T-Mobile, supporting them to strengthen, expand, and speed up the deployment of their nationwide 5G network.” – PC Mag
