STOCKHOLM -- Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) and Cisco will provide Telefonica Guatemala with a new Internet Protocol (IP) network backbone, based on Cisco's aggregation services routers and Ericsson's integration services. Telefonica's LTE subscribers will benefit from the network modernization with increased mobile broadband speeds and better application coverage throughout the country.

Daniel Delisante, Regional CTO, Telefonica Central America, says: "We selected Ericsson based on our longstanding relationship, and trust that the new Ericsson and Cisco partnership will bring value to Telefonica in Central America. As the demand for high-speed broadband and application coverage is continually increasing, we are happy to offer our subscribers a modern, IP-based network throughout Guatemala."

The solution, which includes Ericsson's implementation and integration services, as well as Cisco® routers (ASR 9010 and ASR 1001), will expand Telefonica Guatemala's current network backbone. It will support new capacity and features, including Ethernet services, VPNs, and IPv6. The network modernization also paves the way for future network requirements based on Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and cloud implementations, providing future-proof technology to end users.

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.
