STOCKHOLM -- Major social and economic progress has been taking place in Myanmar over the last two years, as the country opens up its economy. Mobile licenses have recently been awarded which are expected to bring considerable socio-economic benefits to the country and its people.

Myanmar will experience increased network rollout activity as Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) participates in the development of Telenor's mobile network in the country. Ericsson today announced that it has been awarded a 5-year contract for multivendor managed services to support Telenor's nationwide network rollout. Late last year, Telenor also awarded Ericsson with a frame agreement to supply radio-access network (RAN) and associated services for a significant portion of Telenor's network in the country.

Telenor's network in Myanmar is expected to cover 90 percent of the country's population of more than 60 million in five years.

It will be a multi-standard network comprising 2G and 3G to provide customers with both excellent voice quality and high-speed data connectivity. Ericsson's multi-standard network solution will be used in the deployment, along with 2G and 3G equipment that can be upgraded for future requirements.

Ooredoo
So Ericsson is building the network for Telenor. Any idea who is building it for Ooredoo? I heard that they have gone for lower cost option & chosen ZTE. Is that true? Has Qtel deployed ZTE elsewhere too?

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.
