Ericsson has been selected by Orange Jordan to provide its latest environmental and sustainable solutions to transform Orange’s network in Jordan, enabling better coverage and improved connectivity.
Ericsson’s solutions will enhance the connectivity experience for Orange subscribers, while lowering the energy consumption and helping Orange to reduce its environmental impact.
As part of the agreement, Ericsson will upgrade Orange Jordan’s existing packet core and renew its radio access network by replacing the operator’s old radio base stations and introducing Ericsson’s latest RBS 6000 family of base stations. This energy-efficient compact solution will allow Orange to develop new, high-speed mobile broadband services, while reducing the deployment cost.
The packet core upgrade includes SGSN on Ericsson Blade System and Ericsson Evolved Packet Gateway on SSR 8000 family, which will provide an enhanced experience for Orange Jordan subscribers by securing the bandwidth needs of the most demanding online applications with minimal latency.
Ericsson has been the sole provider for Orange Jordan’s telecommunication network requirements for more than 13 years, supporting the operator in building its initial GSM network, 3G network and, most recently, modernizing its 2G network, expanding its 3G network and preparing it for 4G/LTE.
