STOCKHOLM -- Telcel, leading provider of wireless services in Mexico, has chosen Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) as its key supplier in the rollout of an LTE network in Mexico that will provide Telcel subscribers with more broadband speed.

The contract entails deployment of LTE in multiple bands to ensure the best possible experience for customers. It also includes the Evolved Packet Core with Home Subscriber Server (HSS) for user data management and SGSN-MME as the mobility management entity that handles control signaling and traffic and can be used for all three generations of mobile data services. Ericsson will also deliver Operating Support Systems (OSS).

Telcel is owned by América Móvil and with its about 69 million subscribers it has an estimated market share of about 77% in wireless services in Mexico.

Sergio Quiroga da Cunha, Head of Ericsson’s Region Latin America , said: "We have been partners to América Móvil for more than 15 years and we also have a very longstanding relationship with Telcel. With this launch, we take another terrific step in bringing superior connectivity to enable top services and capabilities to people in Mexico."

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.
