STOCKHOLM -- Mongolian operator MobiCom has launched the first high-speed mobile broadband network in the country, powered by HSPA technology from Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC). The launch enables MobiCom to introduce mobile broadband services to its subscribers across Mongolia, starting in the capital Ulaanbaatar where about 40 percent of the country's 3 million inhabitants live.

Ericsson's leading HSPA technology provides fast data-transmission speeds, boosts network capacity and lowers response times for interactive services. The new HSPA-enabled network will allow MobiCom to offer a range of new services, such as high-speed mobile internet access, video telephony, multimedia messaging (MMS) and other innovative multimedia services related to e-health and e-commerce.

Under the contract, Ericsson is the sole supplier of the WCDMA/HSPA radio access network. It is also responsible for network deployment and a wide range of professional services, including systems integration of MobiCom's multi-vendor network, support and competence development.

Bolor Dorjnamjil, CEO of MobiCom Corporataion LLC, says: "This launch reflects MobiCom's continuous commitment to offering its subscribers the latest services and applications. MobiCom was the first operator to introduce mobile services in Mongolia and is now launching the country's first mobile broadband services. Ericsson's experience in 2G-3G network deployments and extensive support capacity make it the ideal partner for this project."

Jan Campbell, Head of Easter Europe and Central Asia, at Ericsson, says: "It is a great honor to be MobiCom's partner for this milestone launch of the first 3G network in the country. We are confident that mobile broadband services will further facilitate the development of world-class communications in Mongolia for the benefit of its people."
