SmarTone deploys LTE in Hong Kong with Ericsson
SmarTone has activated its LTE services. Ericsson provided a multi-standard radio access network underpinned by RBS 6000 base stations and Evolved Packet Core (EPC) using SSR 8000 Smart Services Routers as an Evolved Packet Gateway (EPG). The scope of the plan includes network rollout, integration and support, deployment services, re-farming of the 1800 MHz band and network management with Ericsson’s Operation Support System for Radio & Core (OSS-RC). Ericsson has signed 87 LTE/EPC contracts in 37 countries on five continents.
