STOCKHOLM -- Consumers' increasing demand for mobile broadband is forcing operators to build out their networks for greater coverage, capacity and speed. However, existing sites can be full of equipment, introducing new units can increase site-rental costs, and regulations, zoning and permit processes can lead to long delays in the rollout of new sites. To help operators overcome these issues, Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) today announced the launch of AIR 32 - an innovative new addition to the AIR portfolio - which will be showcased during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 in Ericsson Experience in Hall 2 in Barcelona, Spain. AIR addresses operator challenges by allowing for the introduction of LTE and HSPA without requiring additional antennas or radio units to be added to network sites. The highly integrated nature of the AIR product portfolio enables a faster, easier, high-quality installation, which minimizes revenue losses and the need for additional site visits. In addition, AIR 32 allows multiple active frequencies in a single unit, enabling a further 50-percent reduction of radio equipment. T-Mobile USA is currently using AIR in its ongoing network transformation program, and by doing so, it has experienced substantial improvements in ease of network deployment and performance.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
